CDWG Meeting This Wednesday at 2:00 PM PT!
Join the Computational Demography Working Group
this Wednesday, 3/9/2022 from 2:00-3:00 PM PT to hear about Crystal Yu's
research. Yu is a PhD student in the Sociology Department and NIH OBSSR T32 Fellow in the Demography and Data Science Program. The presentation will encompass her work that builds on previous research on probabilistic projections of fertility and mortality at the subnational level and probabilistic projections of migration to produce ully probabilistic population projections at the subnational level. Yu will illustrate the approach using publicly available population data from Washington State to produce state-level projections for counting from 2020 to 2050.

Call for Applications: Population Health & CSDE Summer Applied Research Fellowship
With support from the Population Health Initiative, CSDE is excited to announce our fourth summer Applied Research Fellowship Program. This opportunity connects a team of undergraduate and graduate fellows to address critical demographic analyses of population growth, housing demand, and housing supply for King County and Public Health Seattle King County. The deadline to apply is April 8, 2022.
This summer’s program will build upon the last two summers’ development of tract level forecasts of population and the geographic distribution of households by size and renter/owner status. With data from the King County Department of Assessments, the team will look at the longitudinal distribution of housing supply by size and type. These analyses will provide valuable tools for local policymakers and stakeholders to better anticipate and fulfill the needs of their constituents.
CSDE’s T32 Fellowship Program Seeking Applicants (Due April 20, 2022)
CSDE’s Data Science and Demography T32 Fellowship program is now accepting applications for a 12-month fellowship for AY 2022-23. This training program is ideal for pre-doctoral candidates who have strong interests in gaining methodological training in data analytics and with research interests in the social determinants or social structural factors linked to population well-being, population health, or demography. The program provides mentoring and support for trainees pursuing scientific careers in relevant academia, government, or private sector organizations.
CSDE Early Career Grant Working Group – Consider Joining!
Are you an early-career (pre-promotion) faculty member 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). 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!
