We cordially invite senior researchers to apply as an
Expert / project leader
in computational social science methods and/or quantitative research on migration
BIGSSS Computational Social Science Summer School on Migration
June 10-21, 2019
Cagliari (Sardinia, Italy)
The two-weeks summer school serves as a research incubator to linking social science research on migration with computational methods of data mining and analysis. The innovative concept bring together senior and junior scientists working intensively working together in one project. As an experts / project leader, you propose an own research project that uses computational social science methods within migration research. Within a team of five people (two experts / project leaders and 3 students), you will work through the entire research process and ideally publish your results in an edited volume or special issue of a peer-reviewed journal. As an expert / project leader you have approximately 50 percent of the time to freely structure and supervise your team. You will also give a lecture or a hands-on workshop for all participants.
Application deadline: November 30, 2018
For more information visit our call or directly apply here. Women are especially encouraged to apply.
The summer school receives generous funding from the Volkswagen Foundation as part of its program
International Research in Computational Social Sciences. It was preceded by a summer school on
conflicts in Bremen (Germany) in 2018 and will be followed by a summer school on social cohesion in
Groningen (Netherlands) in 2020.
We are very happy to announce that Dirk Brockmann from Humboldt Univeristy in Berlin (Germany) confirmed to give a keynote talk at the next CSS summer school on migration in 2019 at Cagliari! Find more information about him at his website: http://rocs.hu-berlin.de/
Stay tuned for our upcoming call for experts and supervisors in October 2018 and for participants in January 2019!
We cordially invite junior researchers (advanced MA level and above) to apply for
Computational Social Science Summer School on Conflicts
23 July – 3 August 2018
Jacobs University, Bremen (Germany)
Application deadline: 11 February 2018
The two-weeks summer school serves as a research incubator linking research on conflicts with methods of computational social science. During the summer school, participants are introduced to methods of computational social sciences (CSS) and conflict research. They will conduct a self-designed hands-on research project. Applicants can also propose their own project.
We welcome applications from social scientists with a focus on conflict research and computational social scientists with interest in the topic. We offer an additional two-day introductory workshop to R before the summer school starts for all those not familiar with the programming language or who want to refresh their skills. Women are especially encouraged to apply.
