South West Doctoral Training Centre, University of Bristol, England

4 ESRC Studentships in Advanced Quantitative Methods in Social Sciences & 
Health

We are pleased to invite applications for 4 ESRC '+3' studentships on the 
South West Doctoral Training Centre's Advanced Quantitative Methods in 
Social Science & Health (AQM) pathway. The AQM pathway is based at the 
University of Bristol and these studentships will run from October 2011.

The AQM pathway involves PhD supervision and core training on the 
application of advanced quantitative methods in the social and health 
sciences. It is run by leading academics from the University of Bristol's 
Centre for Multilevel Modelling, Centre for Market & Public Organisation, 
the School of Geographic Sciences, and the School of Social & Community 
Medicine.

AQM is for social scientists who wish to develop their quantitative 
research skills in order to address important substantive social science 
questions, and in particular those questions involving secondary data 
analysis. AQM is equally for researchers who wish to specialise in the 
development of quantitative methods to address important but more generic 
social science questions, rather than specific applications to a 
substantive topic.

Applications are welcome from graduates in quantitative social science 
disciplines and more technical quantitative disciplines like statistics and 
econometrics. Applicants must have completed a Master's degree satisfying 
the ESRC Postgraduate Training & Development Guidelines by 30 September 2011.

The deadline for applications is 11 April 2011.

AQM is a priority area and it is expected that successful applicants will 
be eligible for an additional AQM stipend of £3,000. Thus the total annual 
maintenance stipend for 2011/12 will be in excess of £16,590.
