Assistant Professor, Sociology
Posted: 8/5/2018 (Employment)
The Department of Sociology invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position, commencing August 1, 2019. Exceptionally qualified candidates may be considered at the Associate level.
We are looking to expand our strength in the area of demography. Within this substantive area, all research foci are of interest. However, research focusing on health is particularly welcome. We seek applicants with strong quantitative skills as demonstrated by a record of applying cutting-edge statistical methods to important questions in population dynamics.
The successful candidate will be associated with the Centre on Population Dynamics. Ability to teach in the graduate option offered in Population Dynamics (including demographic methods) is expected. For more information about our Department, visit our website at www.mcgill.ca/sociology.
If the successful candidate satisfies the specific eligibility conditions of the program, the candidate may be supported by the University for nomination to a Tier 1 or a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Demography, which provides protected time for research within a full-time academic appointment.
A Tier 1 CRC is a senior chair to be held by a full Professor, or an Associate Professor who would earn a senior promotion within two years of acceptance of the award.
Tier 2 Chairs are for emerging researchers (individuals who are no more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree). However, career interruptions (e.g. maternity or parental leave, extended sick leave, clinical training, family care, etc.) may be taken into consideration using the Tier 2 justification process to review the candidate’s eligibility. Potential applicants who are more than 10 years from their highest degree with career interruptions may contact the institution to have their eligibility reviewed through the Tier 2 justification process. The eligibility conditions for the CRC chairs are found at http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/program-programme/nomination-mise_en_candidature-eng.aspx#s3.
