Social and Economic Analysis of Demographic Change

Announcements

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE SPECIALIZED TRAINING ON THE DEMOGRAPHY AND ECONOMICS OF AGING PROGRAM
 
Applications Due June 12, 2015
 

With support from the National Institute of Aging (T32 AG000243), the Center on Aging at NORC at University of Chicago offers on-site predoctoral students and postdoctoral fellows training in the fields of demography and economics of aging through the development of basic and applied research and policy-making and analysis.

 

There are 3 types of open positions:

 

Postdoctoral Fellowship:

With support from the National Institute of Aging (T32 AG000243), the Center on Aging at NORC at University of Chicago offers two postdoctoral fellowships. The goal of these postdoctoral fellowships is to train recent doctoral recipients interested in the demographic and economic analysis of aging through the development of basic methodological tools, applied research, policy-making and analysis, and professional development.

 

The NIA postdoctoral fellowship 2015-2016 stipend is TBA and adjusted according to years of experience (stipend information for past years is available at: http://grants.nih.gov/training/NRSA_Stipend_History_Graph.pdf). Fellowships are renewable for a second year with acceptable progress. The fellowship includes health insurance for the recipient fellow. Please note that the fellowship does not provide for family or spousal health insurance. Fellows are eligible for modest travel support and work space; both are dependent on availability.

The goal of these pre-doctoral fellowships is to train graduate students interested in the fields of demography and economics of aging through the development of basic methodological tools, applied research, policy-making and analysis, and professional development.

The NIA predoctoral fellowship stipend for 2015-2016 is TBA (stipend information for past years is available at: http://grants.nih.gov/training/NRSA_Stipend_History_Graph.pdf).

Predoctoral Affiliate Program

The Specialized Training Program in the Demography and Economics of Aging at NORC at University of Chicago, funded by the National Institute of Aging (T32 AG000243), is designed to train graduate students interested in the fields of demography and economics of aging through the development of basic and applied research and policy-making and analysis. The affiliate program was created to increase collaboration and training among students who would not otherwise qualify for support from the program's fellowships. Predoctoral affiliates actively participate in the training program by enrolling in relevant classes, working with mentors, and attending the weekly Demography Workshop and Post-Mortem Seminar.

 

Affiliates benefit from 1) early guidance in the development of research ideas and areas of specialty; 2) training and support in manuscript development, conference presentations and grant applications; and 3) direction in pursuing aging related courses and training. Moreover, training affiliates better positions themselves for future pre- or postdoctoral fellowships.

Additionally, all trainees and affiliates benefit from: formal affiliation with the Center on Aging at NORC at the University of Chicago, an active research environment in the study of demography and aging; participation in a community of graduate student and postdoctoral level scholars; training in the practice of research on aging; training in the responsible conduct of research; and additional mentorship with University of Chicago faculty.

Applications are due June 12, 2015. Please email Kelly Pudelek at pudelek-kelly@norc.org if you have any questions.
