Postdoctoral Fellowships

We have a long history in nurturing the next generation of population health scientists through our interdisciplinary postdoctoral fellowship programs. Since 1990, a new cohort of postdocs has arrived annually to take part in the David E. Bell Fellowship Program. These early-career scientists—coming from fields such as sociology, public policy, medicine, and economics—have studied a broad range of critical issues in the field of population science. The Mortimer Spiegelman Postdoctoral Fellowship in Demographic Studies is named after the actuary, biostatistician, and demographer Mortimer Spiegelman (1901–1969) who made exceptional contributions to public health. Spiegelman Fellows examine a broad range of critical issues in the field of population and development studies from multidisciplinary perspectives.
