How to Become an MPC Member

Any University of Minnesota faculty member, research staff member, postdoctoral researcher, or graduate student actively engaged in population studies research may apply for MPC membership. To apply, please complete this application form The MPC Advisory Board reviews and approves membership applications at their monthly meetings.

Faculty, postdocs, and researchers outside of the of the University of Minnesota may apply to become an affiliate member (students are not eligible). In general, we prioritize affiliate membership for researchers (1) at institutions that do not have an NIH-funded population center, (2) who are new and/or early stage investigators, and (3) who come from historically underrepresented backgrounds.
