Postdoctoral Associate – Cornell Population Center

 

The Cornell Population Center (CPC) invites applicants for the Frank H.T. Rhodes Postdoctoral Fellowships. The start date for the position will be August 16, 2018 and it will be funded for 2 years, subject to a satisfactory first year evaluation.  Selection will be based on scholarly potential, ability to work in multi-disciplinary settings, and the support of a CPC faculty affiliate at Cornell who will serve as mentor, working closely with the Postdoctoral Associate. Preference will be given to fellows with research interests in areas broadly related to the CPC’s four main foci: families & children; health behaviors & disparities; poverty & inequality; and immigration& diversity. Especially encouraged are applications from candidates whose research has significance for those countries on which the fellowship’s funder focuses – the United States, the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Vietnam, South Africa, and Bermuda.

 

The Frank H. T. Rhodes Fellowships stand as a testament to the profound difference Frank Rhodes has made at Cornell by furthering scholarship and research in areas related to poverty alleviation, support for the elderly and disadvantaged children and youth, public health, and human rights. The postdoctoral program is designed to provide support through collaborations with faculty and to assist new scholars in launching their own programs of research.  Postdoctoral Associates devote most of their time to independent research, but are expected to be actively involved in CPC activities and events.  See http://www.cpc.cornell.edu/ for more information about CPC.

 

Postdoctoral Associates will have access to university resources and receive an annual salary of $63,000 plus benefits and a research/travel account.  Applicants must have completed a Ph.D. in demography, economics, sociology, or another related social science discipline by August 16, 2018. Screening of applications begins December 8, 2017, and will continue until the position is filled. 

 

Applications must include: (a) letter of application, (b) curriculum vita, (c) a statement proposing both an individual research project and how the candidate will engage with a CPC faculty affiliate’s on-going research, (d) examples of written work, (e) a letter of support from a CPC faculty affiliate to be sent under separate cover to mc129@cornell.edu, and (f) three letters of recommendation. These materials must be submitted online via Academic Jobs Online, https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/10058.  For questions, please contact Meg Cole (mc129@cornell.edu)
