Graduate training events and groups support the development of students in the areas of research, funding, professionalization, interdisciplinary research, and networking. Events and groups vary by year and are driven by student demand.
Graduate and postdoctoral training events for Spring 2020 include:
A noncredit semester-long dissertation workshop. For more information on the workshop, contact Amanda Stevenson (email@example.com).

Spring 2020 Mini Session 2 (2/19-3/18)
Wed, 2-4:30, IBS 150
Note: this course was previously advertised as ARSC 5040-003, Thursdays 1-3:30. The time has changed to Wed 2-4:30. ARSC 5040-004 at this new time should appear in the registration system by Mon, Nov 18.
Description: This mini-course will focus on concepts and practices that support the conduct of successful qualitative research projects through planning and early fieldwork stages. Material on "Design" will focus on conceptualizing, selecting, accessing, and sampling desirable research sites. Material on "Data Collection" will focus on the canonical triad of field methods: participant-observation, interviewing, and artifact analysis. Emphasis will be placed on learning best practices (e.g., of fieldnote writing) and conducting trial collection of actual project data.
The Population Health Workshop is an opportunity for students and faculty to give and receive feedback on projects (or even just ideas) they might have on work relating to demography and health issues broadly. Some of the work discussed in this group has focused on socioeconomic effects of smoking, migration patterns among African-born U.S. citizens, and testing the effects of availability of prescription opioids on street drug use. We are looking for more participants across departments both within and beyond the Institute of Behavioral Sciences to both attend and present on relevant work they're engaged with. We will meet on Fridays from 12-1pm in IBS 150 on the following dates: 1/31, 2/14, 2/28, 3/17, 4/3, 4/17, and 5/1. Light lunches will be served! For more information, to subscribe to the listserv, or sign up to present a paper draft or even an idea, please email Trent Davidson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Statistical consulting on research design, data collection, data analysis, and methodology write-up available to social and behavioral sciences researchers, regardless of IBS affiliation.
