Cornell Presidential Postdoctoral Fellows Opportunity
The Cornell Population Center (CPC) and Center for the Study of Inequality (CSI) encourage applicants who are working in the areas of social demography and inequality to apply for the Cornell Presidential Postdoctoral Fellows program. This is a university-wide competition, and it is not limited to social scientists.

Cornell offers an intellectually rich, vibrant, and supportive environment for junior scholars who are working in demography and inequality, broadly defined. Postdocs will enjoy abundant opportunities to receive feedback on their work, engage with world-renowned scholars inside and outside of Cornell, develop professionally, and benefit from multi-disciplinary conversation and collaboration.

For information about Cornell faculty in social demography and inequality who could serve as intellectual resources for Presidential Postdoctoral Fellows, please visit the faculty affiliate lists of the CPC and CSI. If you have further questions about faculty research interests or the two centers, contact Meg Cole (CPC) or Clara Elpi (CSI).
