Post Doctoral Fellow

The Institute for the Study of “Race” & Social Justice in the Division for Equity and Inclusion at The University of New Mexico has received approval to invite applications for up to two full-time Postdoctoral Research Associates (PRA) to begin Jan 1, 2022. This appointment is a full-time position for a term of one year, contingent on satisfactory performance and funding (renewable for up to one year). The PRAs will conduct qualitative case studies on the genealogy, historical context, institutional dynamics, and power relations shaping the ontologies, epistemologies, development and trajectory of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) guidelines and Census questions for race and ethnicity from the 1960s to the present. The PRAs will help co-facilitate convenings and institutes with scholars, policy makers and key leads of federal administrative agencies, as well as co-author reports and publications. PRAs will be affiliated with the Sociology Department in the College of Arts and Sciences. This research is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (Grant #79072: Employing an Intersectionality Framework in Revising Office of Management and Budget Standards for Collecting Administrative Race and Ethnicity Data).

For best consideration, please apply by 10/18/2022. This position will remain open until filled.
