Position Announcement – Ohio State University, Department of Sociology

The Department of Sociology in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University invites applications for an anticipated tenure track position in the field of demography, at the assistant professor to associate professor levels, commencing autumn semester 2016. We seek candidates trained in the models, methods, and materials of demography. No substantive areas of research are excluded, but we are especially interested in candidates conducting research on topics of growing concern, including but not limited to demography and inequality, demography and health, population aging, international migration, and population and environment. It is expected that this position will contribute to interdisciplinary research centers and programs at the university. We seek candidates who will maintain vigorous research programs, actively seek external funding, contribute to both graduate and undergraduate teaching, and provide service to the department and the profession.  This position is partially funded by Ohio State’s Discovery Themes Initiative “Translational Data Analytics”  https://discovery.osu.edu/focus-areas/data-analytics/ which is assembling a critical mass of scholars who apply data analytics to scientific problems across all disciplines. For this reason candidates for this position should possess a high level of technical skill in demography.


Application Instructions: Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, but those received by October 2, 2015 will receive priority consideration. Complete applications include a signed cover letter, curriculum vitae, selected written work, and three signed letters of recommendation (on official letterhead).
