Full Text of JOE Listing:

The University of Michigan’s Survey Research Center invites applications for a position in the Research Professor ranks.
Candidates are expected to demonstrate knowledge of and interest in survey methodology, including topics in questionnaire design, innovative approaches to measuring and reducing nonresponse and measurement error, mode effects, web survey methodology, responsive and adaptive design, longitudinal survey design and analysis, total survey error, interviewer effects, uses of big data for conducting social research, statistical privacy protection, network analysis, natural language processing, integrating survey data with other new data sources (e.g., administrative, biosocial, or social media data), and other areas related to the fundamentals of data collection.

Candidates will be able to pursue their research interests through external funding, collaborate with other scientists, and have the opportunity to teach courses and mentor students in the Michigan Program in Survey and Data Science (MPSDS), a graduate degree-granting program.

We are interested in researchers who would thrive in our entrepreneurial, interdisciplinary, collegial, yet highly autonomous culture. Individuals from groups historically under-represented in the social sciences are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applicants must have a doctoral degree in the social sciences or related disciplines.
