The Cornell Population Center (CPC) invites applicants for the Frank H.T. Rhodes Postdoctoral Fellowships. The start date for the position will be August 16, 2018 and it will be funded for 2 years, subject to a satisfactory first year evaluation.

Applicants must have completed a PhD in Demography, Economics, Sociology, or another related social science discipline by August 16, 2018.
