UNC's Center for Urban & Regional Studies seeks Housing and Community
The Center for Urban and Regional Studies at the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill is looking for a post-doctoral fellow to participate in funded
research and write articles for publication in peer-reviewed journals in the
areas of housing and community development. The Center is currently conducting
two projects for the Charlotte Housing Authority: an evaluation of a HOPE VI
project; and an evaluation of its Moving to Work program. Responsibilities will
include managing and directing workloads for a team of doctoral, masters and
undergraduate students, and participating in the full set of research activities
including: the design of resident surveys and key informant interview guides;
conducting mail surveys and in-person interviews; collecting, cleaning and
organizing secondary data from the housing authority and other sources;
conducting data analysis; and writing project reports and journal articles.
Candidates should have good organizational skills, experience in developing
surveys and interview schedules, experience in the management of large data
sets, strong statistical analysis and writing skills, and the ability to work
well with others. Experience with project management is a plus.
The expected term of the post-doc is two years. Candidates must have attained
their Ph.D. before the start date, which can be any time in the summer or fall
of 2013. (Candidates who have successfully defended their dissertation and are
waiting for their degree to be conferred are eligible to apply.) We will
consider candidates with a Ph.D. in urban planning, public policy, sociology,
statistics, geography, economics, political science, and other related fields.
A strong interest in housing and community development research is preferred,
although interests in poverty, socioeconomic mobility, residential mobility,
workforce development, and other related areas would also be relevant. Salary
is $50,000/yr. plus benefits.
To apply, please complete an online application at
http://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/24739. This position will remain open
until filled but we strongly encourage candidates to apply before June 10, 2013.
