Please note that this event is open to PhD students at the Universities of Manchester, Lancaster and Liverpool. You must register using an email address associated with one of these universities.
MethodsNW is running a series of doctoral research clinics for PhD students on various aspects of doing a PhD. These clinics are available to all PhD students registered at Lancaster, Liverpool or Manchester Universities.
Thirty places are available at each clinic and each will have a panel of up to five academics with expertise in the topic of the clinic. The clinics will involve a mixture of activities, including group work on particular problems facilitated by the academic panel. The clinics are arranged over three days (one at each of the three universities).
The clinic is divided into a morning session 11.00 to 13.00 and an afternoon session 14.00-16.00.
The clinic will be lead by Dr Johan Koskinen and Dr Nick Shryane.
Dr Koskinen is an expert in Social Network Analysis, with his primary research focus on computational inference issues in teh analsys of social network data. He also holds a special interest in classes, positions, roles and context and how this may be approached in statistical analysis, with work on modelling and developing statistical models.
Dr Koskinen also runs the methods@manchester Summer School course Statistical Analysis of Social Networks.
Dr Shryane is a specialist in the modelling of complex psychosocial systems, statistical analysis using latent variables and agent-based modelling.
You can watch a video of him giving a five minute introduction to Structural Equation Modelling using a tea towell on YouTube. Dr Shryane also runs the methods@manchester Summer School course Structural Equation Modelling using Mplus.
