June 14 to June 25, 2021 | University of Helsinki | Virtual event
We do not have specific eligibility criteria for participants: there are no restrictions based on citizenship, country of study, or country of employment. About 20-30 participants will be invited.
The Summer Institute aims to bring together computational social scientists across all levels of technical experience. Participants with less experience with social science research will be expected to complete additional readings in advance of the Institute. Participants with less experience coding will be expected to complete a set of online learning modules on the R or Python programming language. Students doing this preparatory work will be supported by a teaching assistant who will hold online office hours during the two months before the Institute.
We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and fields of study, especially applicants from groups currently under-represented in computational social science. We evaluate applicants along several dimensions:
Further, when making our evaluations, we attempt to account for an applicant’s career stage and previous educational opportunities.
Applicants must submit the following documents:
In order to be guaranteed full consideration, all application materials must be submitted by March 19th, 4pm Helsinki time. All application materials must be submitted through our online system. Applications that are not complete by the deadline may not receive full consideration. We will notify applicants solely through e-mail by late March and will ask participants to confirm their participation very soon thereafter.
Inquiries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
