Post-doctoral fellowship in Welfare Research at Umeå University

Welfare research at the Department of Sociology was recently appointed as one of the strong research environments at Umeå University. We now intend to strengthen our internationally leading research environment with at least one Post-doctoral fellow in the field. The employment as Post-doctoral fellow is limited to two years.

We expect the holder of a Post-doctoral fellowship to conduct research within the strong research environment “Welfare research” (see the attached research program). The employment may include teaching, but to a maximum of 20% of the working time.

The candidate needs to hold a PhD degree, in Sociology or related disciplines, which is not older than three years at the final date of the application. Time on parental leave, sick leave or military service will not count against the three-year limit. Applicants who have previously held a postdoctoral fellowship in the same or a related field at Umeå University are not eligible.

The applications will be judged on the quality of the scientific publications and of the research proposal. The applicant must be fluent in English. We are particularly positive about candidates who received their PhD degrees from other universities than Umeå University.

Applications for the positions should include (in English, preferably electronically):
-Complete CV, including a list of publications
-Research proposal (maximum five pages)
-The PhD thesis of the candidate, and a maximum of three additional publications

For further information about the positions, contact Professor Stefan Svallfors, Department of Sociology, Umeå University; e-mail: Stefan.Svallfors@soc.umu.se.

We expect to call a shortlist of candidates for interview in early September 2011.
