The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), a center in the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan, is recruiting a senior social scientist to direct the Resource Center for Minority Data.

The team seeks an experienced researcher who will engage in outreach and education to the research community, encouraging and supporting data sharing and data use on minority-related issues. It is particularly interested in someone who can expand RCMD’s data resources to include administrative and other naturally occurring data and researchers addressing issues related to data access itself, such as the digital divide, or other research areas grounded in data on minorities, including health disparities, poverty and inequality, and minority entrepreneurship. The person selected for this position will hold a research faculty appointment at ICPSR and as well as an appropriate academic unit at the University of Michigan.

Screening of applications will begin 1 November 2016 and continue until the position is filled.  To apply, please submit a cover letter, a CV, relevant writing samples, and contact information for three references to Margaret Levenstein, Director, Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research, Institute for Social Research, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48106-1248 at rcmd-search@umich.edu.
