Oportunidade de Pós-doutorado - University of California

The “U.S. Immigration Policy in the 21st Century” project led by Prof. Tom K. Wong at the University of California, San Diego, invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral research fellowship. The postdoctoral fellow will support existing research projects and will also be encouraged to use the resources made available to him or her, including research funds, travel support, ongoing collaborations with think tanks, policymakers, and government agencies, and access to administrative data, to launch projects that have potential to shed new light on the workings (or failings) of U.S. immigration policy. The postdoctoral fellow will join a vibrant academic community, which includes the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies (CCIS) and the Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies.

A Ph.D. in the social sciences, with a preference for political science, is required at the time of appointment. Substantive expertise in immigration politics and/or racial and ethnic politics is also required. The postdoctoral fellow should have a range of quantitative research skills. Knowledge of causal inference methods for observational data is highly valued, as is program evaluation experience, experience fielding original surveys, and experience running and analyzing field experiments.  

There are no teaching requirements related to this postdoctoral research fellowship, though there are some administrative duties. Salary, benefits, and research and travel budgets are competitive. 

The initial appointment is for one year with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2017. 

Review of applications, which comprise a cover letter, CV, writing sample, and a list of at least three references, will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
