2018-19 Postdoctoral Application Instructions

Applications for CPC postdoctoral traineeships must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. (EST) on Friday, January 26, 2018.
Electronic submission is required.

A key consideration in the selection of postdoctoral fellows is the congruence of research interests between applicant and faculty preceptor. Applicants must contact potential CPC faculty preceptors as soon as possible to arrange sponsorships. Identifying and making arrangements with an appropriate Faculty Fellow can be time consuming. Applicants should consult the list of CPC Faculty Fellows and contact potential sponsors to determine their availability and interest. The initial term of appointment is one year, but reappointment for a second (final year) is expected.

Applicants may arrange for their own financial support through outside sources, or request consideration from a limited number of awards available through the Carolina Population Center (CPC). Direct support from current CPC training grants require applicants to be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
