The AQM pathway involves PhD supervision and core training on the application of advanced quantitative methods in the social and health sciences. It is run by leading academics from the University of Bristol's Centre for Multilevel Modelling, Centre for Market & Public Organisation, the School of Geographic Sciences, and the School of Social & Community Medicine.
AQM is for:
Social scientists who wish to develop their quantitative research skills in order to address substantive problems, and particularly those involving secondary data analysis.
Statistical researchers who wish to specialise in the development and application of statistical methods to address important issues in the social sciences.
Applications are welcome from graduates in quantitative social science disciplines and more technical quantitative disciplines like statistics and econometrics. Applicants must have completed a Master's degree satisfying the ESRC Postgraduate Training & Development Guidelines by 30 September 2013.
AQM is a priority area and successful applicants will be eligible for an additional £3,000, making a total annual maintenance stipend of £16,590.
