Posted: 5/20/2018 (Employment)

The University of Minnesota invites applications for a full-time faculty member at the Associate or Full Professor level with interests in demography and population studies who can actively and innovatively advance the missions of the University, the Minnesota Population Center (MPC), and its affiliated colleges and academic units. This is an open-discipline/area search. The tenure home will be determined based on the candidate’s background/interests, in consultation with the appropriate colleges and academic units, and in accordance with University policy. One-half of teaching and service obligations will be fulfilled in MPC as part of the population studies program.

Housed in the University of Minnesota’s Institute for Social Research and Data Innovation (ISRDI), the MPC is a hub for interdisciplinary population research. Its members include more than 100 faculty, research staff, and student affiliates from two dozen academic units across ten colleges in the University. Established in 2000 and funded by the National Institutes of Health, MPC cultivates innovative population research by providing a stimulating environment for interdisciplinary exchange, a vibrant and growing population training program, and generous research support services designed to develop and nurture promising areas of new population research. Research and training at the MPC are characterized by a focus on four core substantive areas: population health and health systems; population mobility and spatial demography; reproductive and sexual health; and work, family, and time. Affiliates of the MPC benefit from co-location with the renowned IPUMS data infrastructure projects, the University of Minnesota’s Life Course Center, and the Minnesota Research Data Center (which is part of the Federal Statistical Research Data Center Network).

The University of Minnesota provides equal access and opportunity without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. MPC and its affiliated units support the work-life balance of their faculty and staff, have a history of accommodating dual academic career couples, and encourage applications from women and members of under-represented groups. The University offers excellent and affordable health care and retirement benefits.
