Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies Bell Fellowships.  The David E. Bell Fellowship is a one or two year post-doctoral training program at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies (HCPDS) which provides opportunities for research and leadership training in a flexible program for postdoctoral researchers in the field of population and development. Selected candidates possess a strong record of academic training, proven research experience, a commitment to population and development work, the demonstrated ability to work independently, and leadership potential.  Bell Fellows examine a broad range of critical issues in the field of population and development from multidisciplinary perspectives. Most will have interests that match the HCPDS's focal areas: social and environmental determinants of population health; migration and immigration; causes and consequences of health transitions and aging societies; and gender and labor force participation. The wide range of perspectives will enhance the fellows' experiences and broaden the community life at the Center. In order to devote themselves fulltime to scholarly activities, there are no teaching obligations associated with this fellowship.  For details, visit:
