The Departments of Politics and Sociology at Princeton University seek applicants for two positions at the rank of postdoctoral research associate, more senior research associate, or associate professional specialist. The primary responsibilities of the positions are to design and teach a series of computing workshops for data analysis in the social sciences. Workshops will be offered throughout the academic year, designed to supplement coursework, targeted to undergraduates, and focused on the R language. All materials developed for these workshops must be released open access. The postdoctoral research associates also conduct their own research and possibly engage in collaboration with researchers at Princeton. These are two-year positions with the second year being contingent on satisfactory performance in the first year. The start date for the position is September 1, 2016. All candidates must have at least a Master’s Degree. Candidates for the postdoctoral positions will be required to have a PhD or equivalent.
Interested applicants must apply online at http://jobs.princeton.edu and submit a CV, cover letter, one writing sample, research and teaching statements (including a discussion of the applicant’s relevant previous teaching experiences), and the names and contact information of three references.
We will begin reviewing applications on July 6, 2016 , and we will continue to review applications until the positions are filled.
These positions are subject to the University’s background check policy.
