Two-Year Post-Doctoral Fellowship Opportunity – to begin Fall 2017 or January 2018

The Prentice Institute for Global Population and Economy is seeking applicants for a two year post-doctoral fellowship opportunity beginning in Fall 2017 into January 2018, or whenever suitable applicants are selected.


  • Must have research interests and expertise in an area related to global population
  • Must have a publication profile and evidence of research skills
  • Quantitative and longitudinal analytical skills are important
  • Should have a recently completed Ph.D. in a social science discipline (Sociology, Demography, Economics, Geography, etc)

Willingness to work as part of a research team is an asset.

The Prentice Institute for Global Population and Economy was created in 2006 with a generous endowment from the late Dr. John Prentice, an agri-business entrepreneur. It became operational in mid-2009 with its capacity for research and outreach growing exponentially since. We have 27 Research Affiliates from every Faculty at the University of Lethbridge and our contingent of national and international Research Affiliates is rapidly growing. The Prentice Institute is a world-class global research institute focussing on big-picture issues in global population and economy. It is multi-disciplinary in the development of new knowledge.

Researchers affiliated with the Prentice Institute supervise Ph.D. student in two Ph.D. programs: Demography and Population Studies in Health, as well as a growing number of Masters students. We have access to the University of Lethbridge Statistics Canada Research Data Centre and numerous international datasets that enable comparative analyses.

The University of Lethbridge is rapidly growing into a comprehensive university with a strong

research focus. It is located in a highly livable city in southern Alberta with a relatively mild climate, a vibrant cultural community, and proximity to the Rocky Mountain national parks for outdoor activities and vistas.
