Applications are sought for fully-funded places on the second annual NCRM Summer School to be held 11th-14th September 2006 at the University of Southampton.
This year's summer school will focus on the challenges of conducting collaborative research across disciplinary and methodological boundaries. With contributions from leading UK methodologists, the summer school will consider both the theoretical and practical implications of working across boundaries, alongside opportunities to learn about innovative approaches to multi-method working. There will be a multi-disciplinary team exercise running throughout the week, based on a research brief to be commissioned by Dr Phil Davis, the Deputy Director of the Government Social Research Unit. The summer school is targeted at early career social science researchers (ie, those in the first five years of their post-doctoral career or equivalent), and there are a number of fully-funded places available on an open competition basis.
