Cornell Population Center (CPC)

Postdoctoral Associate

The Cornell Population Center (CPC) invites applicants for the Frank H.T. Rhodes Postdoctoral Fellowship. The position starts August 15, 2022 and will continue for 2 years, subject to a satisfactory first year evaluation. Selection is based on scholarly potential, ability to work in multi-disciplinary settings, and the support of a CPC faculty affiliate who will serve as mentor. Preference will be given to fellows with research interests in areas broadly related to the CPC’s four main areas: 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 Fellowship stands 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. CPC offers an exciting intellectual environment for postdoctoral training in demography, with over 150 affiliated faculty, graduate students, and postdocs. 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 $68,650 plus benefits. Applicants must have completed a Ph.D. in demography, economics, sociology, or another related social science discipline by August 15, 2022. Screening of applications begins December 1, 2021 and will continue until the position is filled. 

Applications must include: (a) letter of application, (b) curriculum vita, (c) statement proposing both an individual research project and a collaborative project with a CPC faculty affiliate, (d) a letter of support from the CPC faculty affiliate who has agreed to serve as the candidate’s mentor (sent under separate cover directly to mc129@cornell.edu), (e) examples of written work, (f) diversity statement, and (g) three letters of recommendation. Please note that applications will not be reviewed unless candidates have clearly identified the CPC faculty affiliate who will serve as their mentor. All materials (except the letter of support from the CPC faculty affiliate) must be submitted online via Academic Jobs Online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/19836.
