Call for Applications: Columbia Population Research Center Visiting Scholars Program

January 14, 2018


The CPRC welcomes visitors whose research fits into one or more of the primary research areas of the Center and who make a compelling case that their presence at the Center will advance their own scholarship as well as the scholarship of CPRC faculty, affiliates, and students. Visitors will be expected to participate in the life of the Center, by mentoring, giving seminars, attending seminars, etc.

In selecting visitors, priority will be given to applicants who are currently participants in a funded research project of the Center as a co-investigator, consultant or a related position; have arranged with a CPRC member to write a grant proposal during their visit; have prior experience working with CPRC members (e.g., co-authoring articles, books, chapters, reports, etc.) and propose to continue such activities during their visit (e.g. manuscript preparation, conference presentations, report writing, etc.); and/or possess special expertise (e.g., statistical methods, theory development, qualitative or ethnographic research, policy experience) or access to particular datasets (e.g. comparative datasets, cohort studies) that would assist Center faculty and/or doctoral students in grant acquisition and publication activities.


Applications for visits in the 2018 – 2019 academic year are due Sunday, January 14th, 2018. For more details and for application instructions, please visit their website.
