The Fifth Annual Berkeley Formal Demography Workshop

The Fifth Annual Berkeley Formal Demography Workshop - Special Emphasis Topic: Migration is to be held Monday through Friday, June 3-7, 2019 at the University of California campus. Join in for an educational program designed to train the next generation of population researchers in the methods in formal demography!

This week-long program, with funding by NICHD R25HD083136 at UC Berkeley consists of three days of hands-on training followed by two days of research presentations by invited faculty. The workshop is targeted to advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, assistant professors and other early career researchers. We are particularly interested in supporting underrepresented minorities. Those studying aspects of mortality, health disparities, economics, sociology and/or public health will particularly benefit, but those with other interests should also apply.

Financial Support: Trainees’ expenses for materials, lodging and meals will be covered. Need-based support for travel is available. We regret that we cannot cover travel from outside the United States.


Application materials and more information about the program and formal demography can be found on the Workshop website:
