The T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics (SSFD), an interdisciplinary unit at Arizona State University (, invites applications for a full-time, fiscal year postdoctoral research scholar position with an anticipated start date of September 2021, or shortly thereafter. The Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics is home to a vibrant, interdisciplinary community of over 60 teaching, research, and clinical faculty members. The School hosts BA, MA, MS, and Ph.D. degrees in Sociology and Family and Human Development, and a specialization in Measurement and Statistical Analysis (MASA) is available to doctoral students. Our faculty and students focus on the most important challenges of the 21st century facing individuals, families, communities, and social institutions from intersectional, interdisciplinary and critical perspectives. The School is committed to recruiting and retaining students and faculty from groups that have historically been underrepresented in academia.

The individual filling this position is expected to establish a vigorous sociological research program, both independently and collaboratively with faculty and graduate and undergraduate students; publish in academic journals or other outlets; teach one course per year; and co-lead a research group of graduate and undergraduate students.

Successful candidates must have a Ph.D. or equivalent by the time of appointment in Sociology or a related discipline, with strong training in sociological theories and research methods. Candidates with expertise in the areas of sociological theories, comparative migration, and/or comparative race, ethnicity and nationalism are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to candidates who demonstrate success in meeting the needs of diverse student populations and/or diverse communities.
