Summer Network Modeling for Epidemics Workshop: Applications Open for 2022!
Network Modeling for Epidemics (NME) is a 5-day short course at the University of Washington that provides training in stochastic network models for infectious disease transmission dynamics.
This is a ''hands-on'' course, using the EpiModel software package in R (www.epimodel.org). EpiModel provides a unified framework for statistically based modeling of dynamic networks from empirical data, and simulation of epidemic dynamics on these networks. This course will touch on the deterministic and individual-based models, but its primary focus is on the theory, methods and application of network models. The course uses a mix of lectures, tutorials, and labs with students working in small groups. Click here to apply!
Apply for Duke's Social Networks & Health Workshop and Research Design Lab
The Duke Network Analysis Center is offering open access to all videos and files accompanying the Social Networks and Health Workshop 2022. The workshop itself will run from May 10-May 12 from 7AM-1PM (PST) every day.
***NEW THIS YEAR! SN&H Research Design Lab*** As part of the Applied Health Research track, they will be holding a live “stump the chumps” style workshop session working through the design for proposed research projects. If you have a networks & health project in the works and would like to get advice on how best to design and carry out your study, here’s your chance to ask the experts!
To apply to participate in the Design Lab
, please send a 1-page project description & short CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1
. All are welcome to send in ideas, but preference for projects will be given to young investigators (PhD students, new faculty, K-awards, etc.).

Boost Your Research Skills -- Attend One of More of CSDE's Spring Quarter Workshops
Funding Opportunity: Spencer Foundation Large Research Grants
The Large Research Grants on Education Program supports education research projects that will contribute to the improvement of education, with budgets ranging from $125,000 up through $500,000 for projects ranging from one to five years.
To this end, this program supports proposals from multiple disciplinary and methodological perspectives, both domestically and internationally, from scholars at various stages in their career. The Spencer Foundation anticipates that proposals will span a wide range of topics and disciplines that innovatively investigate questions central to education, including for example education, anthropology, philosophy, psychology, sociology, law, economics, history, or neuroscience, amongst others.
To submit a full proposal through CSDE, please complete the Planning Proposal Submission Form. Letters of intent are due to the funder by May 4, 2022.
New Population Health Initiative Funding Opportunity
The Population Health Initiative, in partnership with Novo Nordisk and the University of Washington’s Engineering Innovation in Health program, is launching a pilot grant program to catalyze innovative projects that seek to develop solutions for people experiencing chronic disease(s). This program is intended to support UW researchers in testing scalable ideas that seek to better understanding at the intersections of biology, data, digital tools, behavior and financial implications. Applications are due May 31, 2022.
Criminal Justice Administrative Records System (CJARS) Fellowship Program
The University of Michigan CJARS are excited to announce the opening of the second CJARS Fellowship Program. This program provides an amazing opportunity to receive support for research that taps into the wealth of criminal justice data held in the CJARS data infrastructure and all of the possible data linkage available through the U.S. Census Bureau's Federal Statistical Research Data Center (FSRDC) network. They will be selecting 3 fellows to receive $35,000 each to support the development of a research proposal that will be submitted to the U.S. Census Bureau. Interested candidates can download the program solicitation from the CJARS website. Applications are due June 17, 2022.
CSDE Early Career Grant Working Group – consider joining!
Are you an early-career (pre-promotion) faculty member who is thinking about writing a grant? Perhaps you're just beginning to ponder the idea but don't know where to start - or maybe you're already experienced and still need some information, ideas, or moral support. If so, then you should join CSDE's Early Career Grant Working Group! We meet monthly in a hybrid (in-person in Raitt Hall and on Zoom) on third Thursdays from 1:30-2:30. Please email Steve Goodreau (email@example.com) to be added to the mailing list and event invitation.
Please note: membership is focused on CSDE affiliates (any UW campus or external) who are in any kind of faculty position prior to their first major promotion (to associate or equivalent). If you have a question about your eligibility, please email Steve Goodreau (firstname.lastname@example.org).
