Reproduzco a continuación un email recibido en la lista de correo de la IUSSP, ofreciendo distintas opciones para trabajar como demógrafo en la Universidad de Minnesota.
Job Position Title: Assistant or Associate or Full Professor, Population Studies/Demography
The University of Minnesota invites applications for two or three open-rank, full-time, tenure-track or tenured faculty positions. We seek demographers or population researchers who can actively contribute to the research and training missions of the University, the Minnesota Population Center (MPC), and its affiliated colleges and academic units. For each position, the tenure home will be in Applied Economics, Geography, History, Public Affairs, Public Health (Epidemiology and Community Health and Health Policy and Management), Sociology or another unit affiliated with the MPC. Ordinarily appointments will be in a single tenure home, not split across units.
We seek demographers with established or emerging lines of high-quality population research. That research may be on any number of substantive areas within demography including (but not limited to) fertility, mortality, migration, historical demography, labor force dynamics, household and family dynamics, education and human capital, population and the environment, neighborhoods and urbanization, aging, and population approaches to health disparities and health policy. Successful applicants will be expected to continue and expand their own independent research initiatives and to work with others to cultivate new interdisciplinary collaborations. Regardless of their substantive research focus, we anticipate that successful applicants will show potential for obtaining external funding (e.g., from NIH or NSF) to support their independent and collaborative research projects. Applicants should be prepared to advise doctoral and post-doctoral students and to teach courses on (a) formal demographic methods and (b) some of the following topics: fertility, mortality, migration, world population issues and problems, demography and public policy, economic demography, and advanced quantitative methods.
Appointments will be made at the appropriate rank depending upon qualifications and experience and will be consistent with collegiate and University policy.
Requirements include: (1) a doctoral degree in demography or a discipline closely aligned with population research (e.g., economics, geography, public health, sociology); (2) demographic research and training experiences; (3) for senior candidates, a strong publication record in relevant peer-reviewed journals; (4) evidence of potential for obtaining independent external research funding; and (5) evidence of potential for teaching graduate and undergraduate courses on substantive areas within demography.
