Berkeley Formal Demography Workshop: Fertility Patterns over Time

Posted: 11/21/2016 (Conference)

The Third Annual Berkeley Formal Demography Workshop – Special Emphasis Topic: Fertility Patterns over Time, to be held Monday-Friday, JUNE 5-9, 2017 at the University of California campus. Join us for an educational program designed to train the next generation of population researchers in the methods in formal demography. This week-long program, with funding by NICHD R25HD083136 at Berkeley consists of three days of hands-on training followed by two days of research presentations by invited faculty. Following the meeting, students may choose to take part in a mentored research project and a capstone presentation of projects at the 2018 Population Association of America annual meeting. The workshop is targeted to advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, assistant professors and other early career researchers. We are particularly interested in supporting underrepresented minorities. Those studying aspects of fertility, family, and public health will particularly benefit, but those with other interests should also apply.

Financial Support: Traineesā€™ expenses for materials, lodging and meals will be covered. Need-based support for travel is available. We regret that we cannot cover travel from outside the United States. Application materials and more information about the program and formal demography can be found on the Workshop website. For more information, contact Dr. Leora Lawton, Executive Director, Berkeley Population Center.
