SSRC Eurasia Program Title VIII Summer Workshops in Quantitative Methods

THE EURASIA PROGRAM of the Social Science Research Council (SSRC), in partnership with the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and the University of Wisconsin, Madison, invites applications for two intensive, five-day, interdisciplinary workshops devoted to quantitative social science approaches to social, political, economic and cultural phenomena in Eurasia.

Faculty Director: Professor Cynthia Buckley

University of Wisconsin, Madison: August 6- 10

The SSRC Eurasia Program is offering intensive workshops to enhance training in quantitative methodology and increase familiarity with existing data sets among scholars of the region with policy-relevant interests. Workshops will consist of 20 hours of directed laboratory instruction, and approximately ten hours each of supervised laboratory time (group assignments, individual research) and faculty/peer assessments for research. Evenings will be reserved for informal discussions, group projects, and optional seminars concerning advanced themes in sampling, index construction, and non-linear regression approaches. The workshops will be led by experienced local instructors and senior resource faculty. Each participant will present their own research project during the course of the workshop. Participants will also generate a 1-2 page policy memo highlighting their work for possible inclusion in the SSRC Eurasia Program Title VIII Policy Brief Series.


Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents and currently enrolled in an accredited PhD program or area studies MA program, or who have completed a Ph.D. in the last 5 years. Every applicant should have a research project with clear policy relevance. We will entertain applications from advanced scholars with clearly articulated and compelling reasons for inclusion. Applicants from the military academies and minority serving institutions are particularly welcome. We will accept participants with a wide variety of skill levels and topics. Regions and countries currently supported by the program include Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, the Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. All research projects must relate as a whole or in part to one or more of these locales.


The application consists of a short application form, a summary of workshop goals and a brief description of a research project on the Eurasian Region that can be informed by quantitative data. Application materials should be submitted electronically, in one PDF file, to the SSRC Eurasia Program at by 5:00 p.m. EDT on April 10, 2012. All travel costs, workshop meals, instruction and accommodation for participants will be covered by the SSRC through the Title VIII program. Should you have any questions, please contact the Denise Mishiwiec at, 718-517-3705.

The funding for this workshop is provided by the Department of State, Bureau of Intelligence and Research, Office of Outreach Title VIII Program for Research and Training on Eastern Europe and Eurasia (Independent States of the Former Soviet Union).
