Postdoctoral Scholar opportunity at UC Berkeley

The Canadian Studies Program at UC Berkeley seeks applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar, in the area of immigration and Canadian politics, broadly conceived. This is a 12-month, 100% time position, beginning August 1, 2020. 80% of the holder’s time will be dedicated to projects developed in collaboration with the Thomas Garden Barnes Chair of Canadian Studies, Irene Bloemraad; 20% of the holder’s time is reserved for their own research and writing. There is no teaching obligation. The successful candidate will oversee the fielding of online surveys of Canadian attitudes on immigration, and help advance possible parallel surveys in the United States and other immigrant-receiving countries. Other projects will leverage the postdoctoral scholar’s interests and strengths, ideally complementing the Berkeley Interdisciplinary Migration Initiative’s Mapping Spatial Inequality project and/or the focus of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research’s neBoundaries, Membership and Belonging program.
Apply by January 30, 2020 for full consideration. Applications will continue to be reviewed until February 17, 2020, if the position is not filled. The maximum annualized salary direct-paid by Berkeley for this position is $60,000, with a comprehensive benefits package. Salary will be determined commensurate with qualifications, experience, and campus policy. For more information, please visit:
