Fellowship Program
The University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Financial Security’s (CFS) In-Residence Mentored Fellowship is an interdisciplinary training program providing mentored fellowships in the field of retirement and disability research to postdoctoral researchers. Funded by the Social Security Administration through CFS’ Retirement and Disability Research Consortium (RDRC), it provides
one full-time position in-residence at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The 2022-23 Fellow will conduct research on topics related to Social Security, retirement, and disability policy, especially focused on economically vulnerable populations. The fellow is to produce a Working Paper that conforms to SSA standards, along with an accompanying Policy Abstract and Research Brief, and to submit quarterly progress reports throughout the project. The fellow is to also conduct reviews, outreach and related work that supports the CFS RDRC as needed.

Our goal is to produce high-quality research relevant to Social Security programs, policies and/or beneficiaries, as well as to continue to develop early career researchers who can become principal investigators in the retirement and disability research fields. This fellowship will provide both funding and mentoring for scholars interested in applied research within the RDRC focal areas. The fellows will work in collaboration with CFS faculty, and other affiliated mentors. The fellow will have access to a mentorship team from CFS and other UW-Madison centers, including the Center for Demography and Ecology, Institute for Research on Poverty, and Center for Demography of Health and Aging.
