1. European Doctoral School of Demography: Call for Applications

The European Doctoral School of Demography (EDSD) invites applications for school year 2011-12. Entering its seventh successful year, the EDSD is an eleven-month program that is offered every year, with the goal to provide students in the first year of their doctoral studies with an appropriate high-level education in demography. Students will acquire a solid knowledge base on causes and consequences of demographic change, population data, statistical and mathematical demography, as well as modeling, simulation and forecasting. The School’s courses are structured in such a way that the students work on precise formulation of a thesis topic and early steps of their dissertations. The language of the School is English.

In the upcoming school year the School will be held at two different locations. The preparatory courses (from early September to mid-October) will be offered at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (www.demogr.mpg.de) in Rostock, Germany. The core courses (from mid-October to end of July) will be held at the Centre for Demographic Studies at Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain.

The EDSD does not charge fees. Several European research institutes and universities provide full fellowships for all students accepted to the program.
Successful completion of the School results in a Master in demography offered by Autonomous University of Barcelona as well as a European Research Certificate of Demography provided under the auspices of the European Association for Population Studies (EAPS).

The application deadline is April 15, 2011.
