We are writing to announce training opportunities for researchers in natural resources and environmental studies.
The ICPSR Summer Program offers over 80 distinct training courses for researchers across the behavioral, social, and medical sciences. Many of the topics in our courses on quantitative methods and statistics that are of special interest to researchers in natural resources and environmental studies include:
- introductions to probability theory, statistics, and data analysis
- regression and linear models
- panel data analysis
- mixed methods
- causal inference
- time series analysis
- maximum likelihood estimation
- field experiments
- missing data
- introductions to R, Stata, SPSS, SAS, and LaTeX
- and many more!
In addition, in order to facilitate attendance in the 2013 Summer Program, we are offering two special discounts:
Lectures and workshops on a wide variety of topics in research design, quantitative reasoning, statistical methods, and data processing are presented in two four‑week sessions. The first session runs from June 24, 2013 until July 19, 2013. The second session runs from July 22, 2013 until August 16, 2013. The 2013 ICPSR Summer Program will also offer a number of three‑ to five‑day workshops on both statistical and substantive topics throughout the summer. Most of these shorter workshops take place in Ann Arbor, but there are several that will be held in other locations: Amherst, MA; Berkeley, CA; Bloomington, IN; Boulder, CO; Chapel Hill, NC; Montreal, Quebec, Canada; and New York, NY.
In Green Corps’ year-long paid program, you’ll get intensive training in the skills you’ll need to make a difference in the world. You’ll get hands-on experience fighting to solve urgent environmental problems — global warming, deforestation, water pollution and many others — with groups such as Sierra Club and Food and Water Watch. And, when you graduate from Green Corps, we’ll help you find a career with one of the nation’s leading environmental and social change groups.
