Research Fellow in Demography
Oxford Institute of Population Ageing, University of Oxford
Oxford Martin Future of Food Programme
Salary: Grade 7 (£29,541 to £36,298)
The Oxford Institute of Population Ageing is seeking a quantitative researcher to work with Dr George Leeson in collaboration with Dr Mike Bonsall (Department of Zoology) on the Oxford Martin Future of Food Programme. Main responsibilities will be to conduct population modelling scenarios. As part of the scientific team at the Institute, the incumbent will be asked to contribute to research tasks related to demographic and statistical analysis. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the development of a world-leading research programme.
The successful candidate will work within a multi-disciplinary project which combines the expertise of two departments at the University of Oxford, the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing and the Department of Zoology.
The contribution of the Research Fellow in Demography is to undertake population modelling scenarios. While an interest in the demography of developing countries is expected, and knowledge of the demography of the Asian region is desirable, the ability to work in an inter-disciplinary environment alongside both demographers and biologists is essential. The project will require both independent work as well as working as part of a multi-disciplinary team. You will also be expected to participate in project research meetings, seminars and public events.
A PhD or equivalent experience in Demography with proven experience of multidimensional population modelling as well as of population analyses using advanced demographic and statistical methods is essential. In addition, the candidate will have excellent communication skills and the ability to lead and contribute to the publication and presentation of research findings.
The post is full-time, on a fixed-term contract, commencing 1 October 2013 for 2 years (with possibility for extension). Applications, including curriculum vitae, should be submitted by 10 July 2013.
