fostering collaboration and innovation in population science

Rhodes Postdoc Program

CPC’s postdoctoral training program is supported by the Atlantic Philanthropies’ endowment in honor of former Cornell president, Frank H. T. Rhodes. The Frank H. T. Rhodes Fellowships stand as a testament to the profound difference Frank Rhodes has made at Cornell by furthering scholarship and research in areas related to poverty alleviation, support for the elderly and disadvantaged children and youth, public health, and human rights. CPC supports new scholars in developing collaborative research with faculty and launching their own programs of research. Postdoctoral Associates are actively involved in CPC.

Postdoctoral Working Group

CPC supports a postdoctoral working group that fosters the development of work in progress and collaboration on population-related research. Any postdocs interested in participating in the working group, joining the listserv, or affiliating, please send your name, department, and general area of interest/specialty to Meg Cole.
