Call for Applications: Center for Poverty and Social Policy Postdoctoral Scholar, Columbia University

January 31, 2019


Must have a PhD in statistics, economics, political science, public policy, demography, psychology, social work, sociology, or a related discipline. 

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in statistical modeling and an interest in working on methods for survey analysis — including both design- and model-based approaches — and have strong programming skills in R and willingness to use Stata. Previous experience with the statistical modeling language Stan is a plus but is not required.


The Center on Poverty and Social Policy at the Columbia University School of Social Work, the Columbia Population Research Center, and the Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy are seeking a postdoctoral scholar to lead the development of survey weights for the New York City Longitudinal Study of Well-being and associated datasets. The scholar will also help estimate empirical models and contribute to reports of research findings.

  • CV or resume
  • Sample paper or publication
  • A list of three references who can speak to the candidate's credentials
