Call for Applications: European Doctoral School of Demography-EDSD

Posted: 2/15/2019 (Conference)

The EDSD is an eleven-month sponsored program that is offered every year aiming to provide students in the first year of their doctoral studies with an appropriate high-level education in demography. Students will acquire a solid knowledge base on the causes and consequences of demographic change, population data, statistical and mathematical demography, as well as modeling, simulation, and forecasting. The School’s courses are structured in such a way that the students work on the precise formulation of a thesis topic and early steps of their dissertations. Many of the School’s courses concentrate on strengthening the quantitative and programming skills of the students. The language of the School is English.

In the 2019/20 academic year, the School will be held at two different locations. The preparatory courses (from early September to mid-October 2019) will be offered at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock, Germany. The core courses (from mid-October 2019 until end of July 2020) will be held at the Centre d’Estudis Demogràfics, in the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain.

Upon successful completion of the program and presentation of a thesis, the students enrolled in the EDSD will attain an official European Master in Demography from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
