Description of the Workshop


Trainees will receive instruction, hands-on assignments in small groups in order to create a bit more of a personal environment, and breaks to avoid ‘zoom burnout’. We will start about 9 am Pacific time and end no later than 3 pm M-Th, and Friday will end at noon.  An hour of Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training, with a focus on co-authorship, is also required for all trainees. All trainees must provide proof of previous RCR training, for example, CITI or NIH certification.


The workshop is designed for early career researchers from any discipline – demography, sociology, economics, public health, statistics and others. Trainees are either advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, assistant professors or other early stage researchers, but we more advanced researchers seeking to expand their expertise may also apply. As an NIH-funded event covering a STEM subject, we are particularly interested in applications from women and underrepresented minorities (see the NIH definition. )


We will be providing a small sum to cover the cost of a text.


The event will take place virtually on a zoom link to be provided to accepted applicants.
