Postdoctoral research associate position at the University of Florida (UF)
The University of Florida is seeking applicants to fill one postdoctoral research associate. They will be part of a transdisciplinary project—in collaboration with Columbia University (CU) and East Carolina University (ECU)—entitled “Towards a Multi-scale Theory of Coupled Human Mobility and Environment Change.” The project aims at applying a mixed-methods approach to develop a modeling framework that integrates environmental modeling, social dynamics, and migration theories and then to use such a modeling framework to develop an integrative theory of coupled dynamics of migration and environmental change. Some of the methods include dynamical system modeling, multilayer network approaches, climate and hydrological modeling, and Bayesian inference analyses. Different aspects of the project will be conducted across the three universities. The team will meet remotely on a regular basis and annual workshops will be held where all the team members will meet in person.
Applicants for the postdoc positions must demonstrate strong interest in transdisciplinary research and a PhD degree in the social sciences or related/relevant fields. We explicitly specify the last qualification to reflect the importance of integration across disciplines in the project.
To provide the areas of expertise involved in this project, brief descriptions of the participating faculty’s expertise are provided below.
Interested candidates should submit a CV, a cover letter, and three references to Dr. Jeffrey Johnson: [log in to unmask]
The review process will start immediately. The position will start as soon as August 2020. The position will stay open until filled.
