The School of Social Ecology and the Metropolitan Futures Initiative (MFI) seek applications to fill a full-time Postdoctoral Fellow position in the urban social sciences.  Funding is available for up to two years, to be reviewed after the first year.  The position is expected to begin sometime early 2015.  This postdoctoral position is part of the interdisciplinary MFI project (http://socialecology.uci.edu/mfi) directed by Professor John Hipp. Candidates are required to have a PhD in such fields as criminology, urban planning, geography, sociology, or other fields related to urban/regional studies. 

We seek a self-driven, creative thinker with strong quantitative and interpersonal skills to help accomplish an important and interesting set of research tasks.  The successful candidate will supervise a team of graduate and undergraduate students working on a coordinated set of urban research projects that will manage large data sources on characteristics of the region, work on various spatial techniques in addition to traditional social science quantitative methods, and collaborate on grant writing and publications.  While training in spatial analysis skills is not essential, the ability to either learn or work with others who possess such skills is.  A working knowledge of the literature related to urban/regional studies (regardless of the specific discipline) is not required but desired; an intellectual interest in interdisciplinary study is essential. 

The postdoctoral position also entails a leadership role in the Metropolitan Futures Initiative (MFI). As part of this role, the successful candidate will take the lead in organizing the intellectual work that is the MFI Regional Progress Report, a report released every other year.  In addition, this position will allow collaborating with the faculty leadership of MFI on original research projects. 

Overall, it is expected that the postdoc will engage in high level research and be involved in analysis and publication on projects currently underway at the University of California Irvine.  The candidate would also be encouraged to maintain an independent set of research interests.  The role will be supported by a vast array of resources at the University of California, Irvine.

Salary is highly competitive and commensurate with experience and is benefits-eligible.  Applicants will need to submit a dossier including: (1) a curriculum vitae, (2) a cover letter of interest, and (3) arrange to have three letters of recommendation uploaded electronically.

The University of California, Irvine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer advancing inclusive excellence. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, protected veteran status, or other protected categories covered by the UC nondiscrimination policy.

To ensure your application is given full consideration, files should be completed by December 31, 2014. Priority will be given to applications received by this date; however, applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
