|WT Grant Foundation & NSF Seek Proposals on How to Take Research Results About Youth & Apply to Policy and Program
Have you completed research on youth well being that might be translated into applications for policy or programs? Or are you an expert in translating research into policy, generally? If so, you might find this call for proposals a good fit for your work. The NSF and WT Grant Foundation are partnering to support research that evaluates how best to translate research results into policy and programs. Read the full call for proposals and grant description HERE. Deadlines are Jan. 12, May 4, and August 3, 2022.

Are you a population forecasting expert? Portland State Looks for Demographers
Portland State University’s Population Center is looking to hire two researchers to produce county level forecasts for Oregon. The senior position (posting available HERE) will lead research and production of Oregon county level population projections with race/ethnicity, sex, and age detail. Oregon counties range in size from around 1,000 persons to 800,000, so knowledge of small area methods is important, in addition to familiarity with demographic methods and census data. The position is full time with benefits; remote or hybrid work possible. It's listed as a senior research assistant so that it's possible to reach persons who are ABD, but the position will be made appropriate to the rank of the best candidate. The postdoctoral position (posting available HERE) will involve collaborating on a research plan with PRC faculty and working on a research agenda related to migration, small area population estimates, remote sensing, and demographic analysis to support redistricting.
CSDE Early Career Grant Working Group – consider joining!
Are you an early-career (pre-promotion) faculty member or post-doc who is thinking about writing a grant? Perhaps you're just beginning to ponder the idea but don't know where to start - or maybe you're already experienced and still need some information, ideas, or moral support. If so, then you should join CSDE's Early Career Grant Working Group! We meet monthly in a hybrid (in-person in Raitt Hall and on Zoom) on third Thursdays from 1:30-2:30. Please email Steve Goodreau (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be added to the mailing list and event invitation.
Please note: membership is focused on CSDE affiliates (any UW campus or external) who are in any kind of faculty position prior to their first major promotion (to associate or equivalent), as well as to post-docs or other early-career research scientists working directly with CSDE affiliates. If you have a question about your eligibility, please email Steve Goodreau (email@example.com).
Call for CSDE Proposals: Population Research Planning Grants
CSDE has funds available to provide a variety of forms of support for affiliates submitting grants from now through this summer. This might include funding for hiring an RA (quarterly or hourly), hosting or hiring consultants from inside or outside UW, hiring CSDE scientific staff, acquiring data sets, organizing a mini-workshop or writing retreat, or many other possibilities! One key restriction, however, is that funds cannot be used for faculty salary support or course buyout.
Applications are rolling, and CSDE's core leadership will review proposals every two weeks until the funds are exhausted. Early applications are encouraged!
