Job Openings for Post Docs in Environmental Demography and Quantitative Historical/Demographic Research

The CU Population Center (CUPC) at the University of Colorado Boulder is currently recruiting two postdoctoral fellows with expertise in population-environment research, to start August 2020. The initial term of appointment is one year, but reappointment for a second year is possible, subject to performance evaluation. These positions build on CUPC’s strengths in environmental demography, and within that area, candidates should have research expertise in migration-climate-health linkages, rural demography, social vulnerability and natural hazards, and/or urbanization processes and their effects on the environment and health. Candidates must have experience in quantitative methods, the use of computational, statistical or data scientific approaches applied to social science or interdisciplinary research settings as well as data integration that involves spatial and non-spatial data. They are expected to bring particular interest in interdisciplinary research and will be expected to participate in, and develop, projects collaborative with Earth Lab Boulder, an initiative harmonizing the wealth of Earth observation data to facilitate innovative scholarship using combinations of satellite, survey, and field data at various spatial and temporal scales.

Postdoc Fellows are expected to work independently as well as collaboratively with CUPC faculty affiliates on large-scale research projects and grant proposals. Fellows will be resident within CUPC in the Institute of Behavioral Science, will coordinate and/or participate in relevant working groups, regularly attend and present within the CUPC speaker series and other CUPC workshops and activities. We also expect fellows to attend the PAA annual meeting and submit at least two population-focused articles for publication during their time at CU Boulder.

The University of Colorado Population Center (CUPC) and the Institute of Behavioral Science (IBS) at the University of Colorado Boulder are also recruiting a postdoctoral fellow with expertise in quantitative historical and demographic research, for an 18-month appointment, to start January 2020.

Candidates must have experience in quantitative methods, the use of computational, statistical or data scientific approaches applied to social science or interdisciplinary research settings, and data integration involving spatial and non-spatial data. They are expected to bring particular interest in interdisciplinary research and to participate in and develop future interdisciplinary projects. The candidate will work on a project about long-term change in small rural places in the United States, making use of a combination of public and restricted-use demographic, economic, and spatial data, much of it housed in the Rocky Mountain Research Data Center, one in a network of Federal Statistical Research Data Centers managed by the U.S. Bureau of the Census.

More information and how to apply is through the CU Boulder Jobs website – posting 21903. Deadline for application is Friday, November 22, 2019.
