Canada will be investing heavily in renewable energy systems in Northern, Indigenous and remote communities over the foreseeable future, with a goal of achieving full energy security for these communities. We are seeking a dynamic and engaging scholar to join Canada’s leading research community on renewable energy development in Northern, Indigenous, remote and rural communities as a Centennial Chair in Community Energy Development. Centennial Chairs are created and funded by the University in areas of strategic importance and are intended to recruit and retain outstanding faculty with strong research profiles. The successful candidate will be appointed to a tenured or tenure-track position at a rank commensurate with qualifications (at either the assistant or associate professor rank), and the Chair will be awarded for a five-year term, renewable once.

The successful candidate should possess quantitative skills and capacity in modelling applications to understand the broader socio-economic impact of energy development in these communities. Experience working with communities to enhance the socio-economic potential of community energy development or community economic development is an asset. Applicants with relevant research experience in developing economy contexts, agricultural, Indigenous and/or rural communities, technology and change, environmental and energy economics, or in the resource sectors are encouraged to apply. The search committee will consider scholars from various disciplines including economics, engineering, environmental studies, economic geography, or other relevant disciplines. The Centennial Chair will establish the leading program of research and training in Canada to inform the socio-economic implications of this energy transition and to understand the value proposition for host communities.

The School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS) is a premier site internationally for practicing use-inspired and community-engaged scholarship. Our faculty are committed to engaging Indigenous peoples and knowledge in research and teaching, and we emphasize hands-on experiential learning in our graduate programs. Our focus on community energy development will advance our ability to connect with other units on campus, strengthen the policy relevance of our research and contribute to a sustainability focused curriculum.

As a tenure-track faculty member in SENS, the successful candidate will be expected to establish a substantive, externally funded research program in applied community energy development with applications to rural and remote communities, especially Indigenous and Northern communities. With an important emphasis on the global energy transition and the new opportunities for local communities to develop their own energy projects through renewable energy, the research program is expected to adapt or develop models to measure the impact of local, renewable energy projects for sustainable economies, rural development, and community quality of life, among other issues. The successful candidate will also teach courses in the Economics of Community Energy Development and in Economic Valuation of Environmental Sustainability; advise graduate students in our MES and PhD programs, and a new Master’s program in Energy Security (under development); engage in community outreach activities aligned with the faculty member's research and teaching expertise; and, participate in broad-based university and departmental committee work and professional service.

The Department of Sociology, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Copenhagen invites applications for a three-year fixed-term postdoc position starting on 1 February 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a new research team that will conduct a large-scale study of the social class mobility of siblings born over most over the 20th century in more than 10 countries. The research project "Social Class Mobility in Comparative Perspective: Bringing Siblings In" (SIBMOB) is hiring a postdoc who will play a crucial role in developing the project’s methodological innovations. These innovations revolve around developing statistical models for examining the class mobility experiences of siblings from different families. The team is located in a family-friendly work environment at the Department of Sociology, University of Copenhagen.

Qualifications
Applicants should hold a PhD degree within the social sciences (e.g., sociology or economics), applied statistics, bio-statistics, epidemiology, or related fields. Applicants should have obtained their PhD degree in 2014 or later. Applicants must possess advanced skills within quantitative methods, applied statistics, or econometrics. Expertise in mixed generalized linear models, latent class regression models, random effects models, and/or finite mixture modeling is an advantage but not a requirement.

Job Description
SIBMOB, which is funded by the European Research Council, has two objectives: (a) to develop a new methodological approach to characterize the social class mobility of siblings, and (b) to apply this approach in an empirical study of more than 10 countries. The main role of the postdoc is to contribute to the development of the new methodological approach. This part of the project extends the highly influential approach to intergenerational class mobility in sociology by developing new statistical models that rely on the mobility experiences of siblings rather than individuals. Along with the PI, the postdoc will work on extending the mainstream approach based on loglinear models for contingency tables to accommodate unmeasured family heterogeneity. Developing models for single countries and for cross-country comparisons is a major aim of the methodological work package, and the postdoc will play a crucial role in meeting this aim.

SIBMOB is a collaborative project, and the postdoc will be part of a research team which, in addition to the PI in charge of the SIBMOB project (Associate Professor Kristian Bernt Karlson), includes two other postdocs (to be hired in 2022 and 2023) and a research assistant. The candidate is expected to work both independently and in collaboration with the research team to break new ground in the study of social class mobility, with the overall ambition of advancing our understanding of why some countries are more socially mobile than other countries. The project runs from 2021 through 2025 and is located at the Department of Sociology, University of Copenhagen. The candidate is also expected take part in the academic life of the department and will be part of the research group Welfare, Inequality, and Mobility.

The postdoc position is a full-time research position and does not involve any teaching obligations.

For further information, including more details on the SIBMOB project, please contact project PI Associate Professor Kristian Bernt Karlson (kbk@soc.ku.dk).

Salary and Terms of Employment

The Questrom School of Business at Boston University anticipates an opening for a full-time lecturer to teach quantitative methods for business in the Questrom School of Business’ undergraduate and masters programs. Pending Provost budgetary approval, the anticipated start date for this faculty position is July 1, 2020.

Currently, Questrom requires its undergraduates to take three quantitative methods classes that cover probability, statistics (with a strong emphasis on multiple regression), optimization, and risk management modeling. Any candidate must be able to teach all three of these undergraduate required courses. Other quantitative courses the successful candidate might be asked to teach include undergraduate business analytics electives, MBA courses on quantitative methods, or courses in our master’s program in business analytics.

Full-time lecturers in the Questrom School have a standard teaching load of six sections per academic year, typically fulfilled by teaching three sections each in the fall and spring semester. As Questrom offers many sections of its core quantitative methods classes each semester, most lecturers are able to satisfy their teaching obligation with multiple sections of some or even all the courses they teach. Lecturers are also expected to perform some service through, for example, membership on school committees, participation in school functions (such as recruiting events), and advising student clubs.

The Questrom School of Business believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. To that, we are especially eager to have join our ranks a colleague who supports our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive. The Questrom School of Business seeks to continue diversifying our faculty, student and staff ranks, recognizing that diversity of experience and thought deepens the intellectual endeavor.

Required Skills

Candidates must have demonstrated expertise in the application of quantitative methods in business obtained through some combination of academic work and business experience. A Ph.D. in a field related to the use of quantitative methods in business is desirable, but we will consider candidates with at least a bachelors degrees that can demonstrate sufficient expertise learned through experience applying quantitative tools in business. Experience with and mastery of Python or R, preferably both, is a requirement. Because we expect Questrom students to master the use of Excel, strong Excel skills are also essential. Teaching experience is desirable, but we will consider candidates who have not taught previously.

How to Apply

Interested candidates should not apply through the Boston University HR website. Candidates are encouraged to send application details to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/16258 and include the following:

  1. A cover letter stating interest and qualification
  2. A curriculum vitae
  3. Three letters of recommendation
  4. A statement of where you saw this notice (e.g. the conference name, website, colleague, etc.)

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis as they arrive until the position is filled. We will begin interviewing immediately.

Description of duties:

We aim to support a highly promising scholar with a background in a computational discipline, such as economics, computational social science, or computer science, with experience and interest in the phenomenon of human normativity: the practice of classifying actions or states as acceptable or not and coordinating enforcement schemes to channel behavior according to that classification. The scholar's research agenda should address a topic that engages with the phenomenon of normativity as a system-level feature of human groups and focus on questions such as what attributes contribute to the maintenance of stability and adaptability and in support of cooperation and coordination to generate group value. The proposed research is expected to yield both theoretical and empirical publications.

This role is expected to contribute to a research program headed by Dr. Hadfield at the Schwartz Reisman Institute focused on building computational models of norm emergence and dynamics, rooted ultimately as closely as possible in a rational agent and equilibrium approach to decisions about third-party norm enforcement and compliance. This approach builds on a conceptual framework for normative social orders developed in Hadfield and Weingast (2012, 2014), Hadfield-Menell, Andrus and Hadfield (2019) and Koster, Hadfield-Menell, Hadfield and Leibo (2019). Modeling techniques could include evolutionary game theory, multiagent models using POMDPs, and multiagent reinforcement learning. Key questions explored in this program are: how do groups of agents settle (equilibrate) on normative classification for novel behaviors? What features of norm systems contribute to stability/robustness and adaptability? The Hadfield-Weingast work, for example, argues that conventional “rule of law” features such as generality and openness contribute to securing an equilibrium that relies on third-party unofficial enforcement of shared normative classification; the Hadfield-Menell and Hadfield et al. work looks at the role of “silly” (meaningless) rules in stabilizing a normative social order with important rules. Familiarity with formal modeling of norms and evolutionary approaches to norms (e.g. McElreath, Boyd and Richerson 2003, Boyd, Gintis and Bowles 2010, DeScioli and Kurzban 2012)) as well as behavioral economics is a key asset.

The fellow will be an integral part of the research community at the Schwartz Reisman Institute. The Institute is dedicated to integrative research and human-centred solutions to make sure technology improves life—for everyone. We draw on world-class expertise across universities, government, industry, and community organizations to conduct ground-breaking research and develop innovative solutions to pressing real-world challenges.

Salary: $75,000 per annum.

Required qualifications: Ph.D. (computational discipline, such as economics, computational social science, or computer science) or equivalent terminal degree, normally awarded within the past 5 years.

Application instructions

Applications will be reviewed as they are received. All individuals interested in this position must submit the following documents:

 A current curriculum vitae;

 A research proposal (not to exceed 1,500 words). Please supply an indicative title for the project at the beginning of the proposal;

 A representative manuscript or publication;

 Contact information for three referees, who will be asked to comment specifically on your qualifications for the proposed research project.

Term: 1 year with potential for renewal
