Training in the Population Sciences at UC Berkeley takes place in many forms and settings, for students at different levels.
The Demography Department offers training for advanced degrees in demography. The Department also holds an NIA T32000246 grant that funds qualified postdoctoral candidates. There are no positions available at this time, but those interested in a 2022 start date should inquire in the Department.
Cal-ADAR, an undergraduate program sponsored by the Berkeley Population Center and the Department of Demography, is a program funded by the National Institutes on Aging (R25AG047948) designed to give underrepresented students a chance to experience research while studying demography of aging. Cal-ADAR, known as "Advancing Diversity in Demography of Aging Research" offers participants many ways to engage in demography of aging research through courses, paid internships, mentoring, and much more.
Workshops in Formal Demography is a program for advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career researchers, sponsored by the Berkeley Population Center, and funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (R25HD083136). It is an annual weeklong summer workshop for training in formal demographic methods and applications. Typically, the Workshop consists of three days of training followed by two days of presentations by invited scholars. It was virtual in 2020 and likely to be so again in 2021.
