NICHD Traineeship Applications 

We are now accepting applications for 4 predoctoral traineeships funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) T32 Training Grant awarded to CCPR, pending the final notice of award. NICHD traineeships are intended to support training in demography and population sciences. Traineeship appointments are to individuals who are committed to a research career and who plan to remain in training for no less than two years, whether that support comes from a training grant or other sources. Trainees appointments are for 12 months, beginning October 2020.

Application is due 5/1/2020. Please note that an email requesting CCPR-affiliated faculty endorsement for the application will be generated and sent to faculty once the application is submitted. The due date for faculty endorsement is the same due date of the application, so please apply early. We will notify students selected for traineeships in June.
