The University will consider applicants with an active research agenda in all areas of theoretically-informed social research. You may visit the Social Research and Public Policy program’s website for a description of its innovative curriculum.
The excellent terms of employment are competitive and include generous start-up and on-going research funds, as well as housing and educational subsidies for children.

Successful candidates can start employment on or before August 15, 2017 subject to final budget approval.
Applications are due no later than September 1, 2016. The review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the positions are filled. To ensure full consideration by the search committee, applicants must submit their cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and representative publications. To complete the online process, applicants will be prompted to enter the names and email addresses of at least three referees. Each referee will be contacted to upload their reference letter.
