The European Doctoral School of Demography (EDSD) invites applications for
school year 2019-2020.

Deadline for applications:  April 15, 2019.

The EDSD is an eleven-month sponsored program that is offered every year
aiming 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 the 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 the precise formulation of a thesis
topic and early steps of their dissertations. Many of the School’s courses
concentrate on strengthening the quantitative and programming skills of the
students. The language of the School is English.

In the 2019/20 academic year, the School will be held at two different
locations. The preparatory courses (September and October 2019) will be
offered at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research
<> in Rostock, Germany. The core courses (from
November 2019 until end of July 2020) will be held at the Centre d’Estudis
Demogràfics <> in the Universitat Autònoma de
Barcelona, Spain.

Demography from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
