The California Department of Finance is seeking qualified candidates to fill a part time demographer/trainee position. The Demographic Research Unit serves as the State of California’s source of official, unbiased demographic data for planning and budgeting, and is the designated statewide liaison with the U.S. Census Bureau. The position requires the ability to work remotely with occasional travel for in-person meetings.
The incumbent will design and conduct research projects with minimal supervision. The project(s) may be part of a thesis, term paper or project, or dissertation that engages with issues relevant to the past, present, or future demography of California. The position is initially a one year traineeship, with the possibility of renewal.
We are seeking to find and support researchers whose interests overlap with our applied demographic research agenda. Our researchers work on topics related to the Census, small area methods, and the estimation and projection of population and housing unit counts through the study of fertility, mortality, and domestic and international migration.
