Please see below the advertisement for a lecturer/senior lecturer position in quantitative social research, with focus on demography, at the Australian National University.  Candidates will need to be able to contribute to the school's demographic research (in areas such as fertility, family, ageing, mortality, migration).  I'm hoping some people with an interest in social networks (specifically mentioned in the advertisement) might apply.
