The Zurich Summer School for Women in Political Methodology is an 8-day workshop, to take place in Zürich, Switzerland on 2 – 9 August, 2017. The summer school is designed for current and future PhD students, as well as postdocs and early-career researchers who identify as women , and who work in the field of Political Science or related disciplines. Participation in the summer school requires some prior statistical knowledge, as well as a basic R skills. If you are not familiar with R yet, we have put together a list of (free) courses that will help you get up to speed.
The Summer School aims to train women scholars in advanced social science methodology. This is the first step of a larger long-term initiative to increase women participation in this research field where women are typically underrepresented.
The summer school is free. Participation includes instruction, lunch and three dinners. There are 21 funded places available, of which 7-10 places are intended for external participants and approximately 11 for participants from Zurich-based universities. In addition, accommodation will be arranged privately, meaning that external students have the option to be hosted by participants from the University of Zürich or ETH Zürich. Flights/transportation to/from Zürich will have to be arranged and covered by participants themselves. If you are applying from a Zurich-based University, please note that you might be requested to host an external participant during the summer school. This is part of our effort to promote collaboration between participants and build a network of like-minded scholars.
