The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) and participating NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) intend to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to solicit applications for new behavioral and social sciences research (BSSR) predoctoral training programs that focus on innovative computational and/or data science analytic approaches and their incorporation into training for the future BSSR health research workforce. The FOA is expected to be published in October 2018 with an anticipated application due date in May 2019.
The GESIS workshop week on “Behavioral Genetics in Social Science Research” takes place October 8-12, 2018 at GESIS Cologne, Germany.Three workshops during the week will familiarize social scientists with genetic data and offer hands-on training on how to incorporate genetic information into social science analyses. Participants may register for workshops separately or for the entire week. Selected participants will have the opportunity to make a poster presentation on their own work or idea on the evening of October 8, 2018. If interested, submit a short outline (about 0.5 pages) of the research idea or project by August 20, 2018.
What is community engagement, and how can we make it work?
Papers are invited for a special issue of Research in the Sociology of Health Care on “Underserved and Socially Disadvantaged Groups and Linkages with Health and Health Care Differentials.” The issue will focus on macro-level system issues and micro-level issues involving the socially disadvantaged and underserved and other social factors as related to health and health care differentials. Send completed manuscripts or close to completed papers for review by December 3, 2018. Direct inquiries to Jennie.Kronenfeld@asu.edu.
