Applications are open for the 5th annual SSSI Summer Training Institute

The 5th annual Systems Science for Social Impact (SSSI) Summer Training Institute will be held at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis, from August 12 – 16, 2024. Applications are open.

At this 5-day Summer Training Institute, participants will get a hands-on introduction to systems science methods that enhance the social impact of health and social science research. Led by experienced systems science scholars, this in-depth training institute will feature five major systems science tracks: intro to systems, agent-based modeling, group model building, social network analysis, and system dynamics. Participants will review the major concepts of their chosen track, learn analytic best practices, and apply the methods to real-world data.

The workshops are designed for faculty, advanced graduate students, recent graduates, and professionals from public health, social work, and social sciences.

Participants will have ample opportunities to interact with participants, instructors, and outside experts across tracks. The application process is open, and we will accept candidates on a rolling basis through July 19, 2024.

The Summer Training Institute is designed for advanced graduate students, recent graduates, professionals, and faculty from social work, public health, and social sciences who are interested in learning how systems methods can be applied in their research. Attendees should be familiar with quantitative descriptive and analytical techniques commonly used in their discipline (e.g., data visualization, regression analyses). Some experience with statistical software or programming languages is preferred.

You can apply and read more on the Institute’s website.
