In order to do so, the project will gather large-scale datasets on interest group activity, public opinion and policy outcomes on a large number of issues in several countries, including Denmark, Germany the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom. The project runs from October 2013 for a period of four years.

The successful applicants will be part of a research team involving Anne Rasmussen (Project manager, University of Copenhagen/Leiden University), Anne Skorkjær Binderkrantz (University of Aarhus), Heike Klüver (University of Bamberg), and Dimiter Toshkov (University of Leiden) as well as David Lowery (Pennsylvania State University/Leiden University) & Christopher Wlezien (University of Texas at Austin) as advisory members. The new hires will be based in Copenhagen but also have the opportunity to spend time at other institutions involved in the project.

The Department of Political Science at the University of Copenhagen is one of Europe's largest political science departments, with a research and teaching faculty of about 60, 1800 students at the BSc and MSc levels and approximately 40 PhD students. The Department of Political Science has a strong international research profile and a pluralistic, vibrant and dynamic research and teaching environment.

Qualifications (both positions):

Both the Assistant Professor and Postdoc positions require qualifications at the PhD level. The project particularly encourages applications from candidates with strong expertise in cross-sectional and/or time-series analysis and experience with automated text coding. A substantive interest in political responsiveness, interest groups, public policy and/or public opinion research would also be an advantage.

Since the working language of both the project team and the Department of Political Science at the University of Copenhagen is English, command of the Danish language is not a prerequisite for applying.

The deadline for applications including enclosures is December 15, 2013 (at 12 PM Danish Time).
