RAND Summer Institute
RAND is pleased to announce the 20th annual RAND Summer Institute (RSI). RSI consists of two annual conferences that address critical issues facing our aging population. The Mini-Medical School for Social Scientists will be held on July 8–9, and the Demography, Economics, Psychology, and Epidemiology of Aging conference on July 10–11, 2013. Both conferences will convene at the RAND Corporation headquarters in Santa Monica, California.
This year we are pleased to announce the User Workshop on the HRS Family of Data Sets. This one-day data workshop is organized in conjunction with the RAND Summer Institute (RSI) on July 12, 2013. At this one-day data workshop, we will introduce the large family of Health and Retirement Study (HRS) data sets to users and provide hands-on training to help users start using these for their own research. This includes recently available biological and genetic data from the HRS-family of data sets and integration of these data in social science research. You do not need to apply separately for this workshop but will have the option to attend if you are selected for RSI.
We are no longer accepting applications.
The conferences are sponsored by the National Institute on Aging and the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research.
Qualified applicants must hold a Ph.D. or have completed two years of a Ph.D. program and be actively working on a dissertation. Only applicants working in the field of aging—or actively considering this research field—will be considered.
