- Research Associate (Post-doctoral) position in cross-scalar research on migration, urbanization & climate change
The University of Colorado Population Center (CUPC) & National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Integrated Science Program (ISP) announce recruitment for a Research Associate (Post-doctoral) position in cross-scalar research on migration, urbanization & climate change.
The full-time Research Associate will work with both CUPC & NCAR researchers on projects bridging institutions. Relevant CUPC & NCAR research includes:
household-level modeling of migration processes as related to environmental change;
vulnerability & resilience of urban regions in the face of environmental change;
the role of migration & urbanization processes in shaping emission trends;
integrated assessment modeling of emissions & climate change, linking socio-economic & natural science.
Central & Latin America represent key geographic areas of interest given ongoing research in both CUPC & NCAR, although other areas of focus will be considered.
This postdoctoral research program has been developed to 1) contribute to the emerging body of population-climate research, 2) grow the pool of scientists qualified to work at one of the areas of the interface between population-climate dynamics, & 3) increase & strengthen collaborations between CUPC affiliates & the NCAR Integrated Science Program scholars. Thus, the program will pair recently graduated PhDs with host scientists at both CUPC & NCAR to work in areas of mutual interest.

- Post-Doctoral Position in Social Science and Infectious Disease
The Goldberg Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison invites applications for a post-doctoral researcher to study human social drivers of zoonotic disease in Sub-Saharan Africa. The post-doc will be an integral member of a new, international, NIH-funded project focused on the biological and human dimensions of primate infectious disease transmission in Uganda, including social drivers of human-primate contact and zoonotic transmission. This is a unique opportunity for a post-doctoral scholar with training in the social sciences to study human-wildlife conflict/contact and health and disease in a highly relevant ecological setting. The following criteria apply.
Candidates must have completed or be near to completing a PhD in the social sciences, in a discipline such as anthropology, geography, sociology, behavioral epidemiology, or a relevant discipline within the public health fields.
Candidates must have a demonstrated interest in health and infectious disease.
Candidates must have prior field experience in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Candidates must be willing to relocate to Madison, Wisconsin for three years.
Candidates must be willing to spend substantial time abroad, including in Sub-Saharan Africa and at partner institutions in the United Kingdom.
Candidates must have experience with collection and analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data. Familiarity with methods such as social network analysis, GIS, participatory methods, and survey design would be advantageous.
The successful candidate will help lead a dynamic international team of students and other post-docs in a multi-institutional, multidisciplinary project. Duties involve a flexible combination of fieldwork, analyses, and project coordination, in addition to helping to mentor students from North America, Europe, and Africa. The successful applicant will be expected to explore new research directions of her/his choosing, assisted by a strong team of collaborators.
Applicants should send a current CV, a statement of research interests and qualifications (be sure to address the six criteria above), and a list of three people (names, addresses, e-mails) who can serve as references.
Application materials must be received by September 12, 2011 for full consideration; the position is available starting immediately and requires a three-year commitment. If interested, contact
