Postdoctoral Training Program

Postdoctoral scholars are an important part of the intellectual life of the Population Studies Center. Postdocs devote most of their time to research, both independently and in collaboration with researchers in the Population Studies Center, the Institute for Social Research and the campus community. In addition to research, postdocs have the option of attending advanced courses in demographic theory and methods, or other substantive areas related to their work. They are also encouraged to prepare at least one research proposal for outside funding during their appointment period.

The Center currently has postdoctoral programs supported by funds from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the National Institute on Aging (NIA). In all, there are typically five to seven postdoctoral scholars in residence at PSC. The NICHD postdoctoral program supports researchers working on any type of demographic research. The NIA postdoctoral program is focused on but not limited to research on the demography and economics of aging. Fellowships sponsored by NICHD and NIA are funded by the Federal government and are therefore restricted to U.S. citizens and Permanent Residents.

PSC expects to have openings for postdoctoral fellows sponsored by NIH with positions starting on or about September 1, 2016. The listing will be on this page November, 2015. Please do not send inquiries or materials before that time.
