Research Fellowship – University of Washington, Center for Studies in Demography & Ecology
Posted: 2/28/2023 (Employment)
The Population Health Initiative is partnering with the University of Washington’s Center for Studies in Demography & Ecology for the fifth consecutive summer to offer the Population Health Applied Research Fellowship program. Applications for this summer’s cohort will be accepted until March 28, 2023 from undergraduate and graduate students across all UW schools and colleges on all three UW campuses.
This paid fellowship program will offer a multidisciplinary team of undergraduate and graduate students training in data analysis techniques as well as in research and presentation skills while they develop a work product for an external partner.
The Summer 2023 Population Health Applied Research Fellowship team will work closely with the King County Demographer and an epidemiologist at the Assessment, Policy Development, and Evaluation Unit at Public Health – Seattle & King County to explore individual- and aggregate-level data and quantify the timing, volume and location of internal migration within the county. Students will dive into housing, household size, reasons for migration and displacement and quantifying uncertainty via probabilistic models to help for future prediction planning and management at King County.
Ultimately, the team plans to build on the work of previous fellows to explore housing supply changes, changes in population by demographic variables, and changes in the distribution of renter-occupied and owner-occupied households of different sizes over this period of unprecedented growth.
Three graduate students and two undergraduate students will compose the fellowship team. They will be supervised by faculty and staff from the Population Health Initiative and the Center for Studies in Demography & Ecology.
