Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunities at the Center on Aging at NORC at the University of Chicago

Modified: May 21, 2015

The Center on Aging at NORC at University of Chicago, supported by the NIA, is offering two postdoctoral fellowship opportunities. The goal of these postdoctoral fellowships is to train recent doctoral recipients interested in the demographic and economic analysis of aging through the development of basic methodological tools, applied research, policy-making and analysis, and professional development. 

Candidates must be interested in demography or the economics of aging and have a PhD or equivalent graduate degree. Fellowships are restricted to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Previous research in demography or the economics of aging is not necessary; however, a future commitment is.

All application materials must be submitted to Kelly Pudelek at Pudelek-Kelly@norc.org by Friday, May 29. Applications must be submitted electronically in PDF format. Recommendation letters may be emailed directly via email to Pudelek-Kelly@norc.org or signed and submitted via post to:

Kelly Pudelek
NORC at the University of Chicago
1155 E. 60th Street, Flr 2
Chicago, IL 60637

Application materials for the NIA postdoctoral training program include: 1) letter of interest; 2) personal statement outlining the applicant’s research agenda; 3) curriculum vitae; 4) two letters of recommendation; and 5) a sample of written work or a recent publication.

There is no page limit for the statement of research interests but they encourage all applicants to provide enough information for the Committee on Demographic Training to make a thoughtful decision in respect to applicants’ interests, experience, and aspirations. Applications are generally 3-5 pages; however, successful applicants have submitted statements that range in length and scope.
