Center Membership

There are three levels of membership in the Columbia Population Research Center: Faculty, Affiliates, and Fellows. New CPRC faculty, affiliates, and fellows may be nominated by existing CPRC members and are appointed by recommendation of the co-directors and a majority vote of the Steering Committee.

Faculty

Columbia University faculty or research scientists with primary appointments at Columbia University who are engaged in population-based research that fall into one or more of CPRC's Primary Research Areas or, occasionally, into other thematic areas that fall within the purview of the Population Dynamics Branch of NICHD.

Affiliates

Columbia University faculty, research scientists, or staff with primary appointments at Columbia University whose substantive research interests are highly related to CPRC Primary Research Areas, but whose research is either primarily clinical or primarily historical/political and thus not population-based.

Fellows

Advanced doctoral students or postdoctoral fellows at Columbia who work with CPRC faculty.
