For those students who are successful, the full balance of £880 must be paid within 7 days of receiving their scholarship offer. Failure to do so will result in the scholarship being cancelled, although they will still be able to attend LISS at full cost.

3rd Empirical Implications of Theoretical Models (EITM) Europe Summer Institut

Posted by on January 26th, 2011 · Uncategorized

You are invited to our 3rd Empirical Implications of Theoretical Models (EITM) Europe Summer Institute which will take place from June 26 – July 9, 2011.

One of the central goals of the EITM is the training of sophisticated tools of analysis, which scholars need to investigate the explanatory power of formal theoretical models. Do these formal theories provide accurate insights into the causal mechanism of political decision making? And how can we test their value empirically? For answering these questions, EITM connects sophisticated theoretical modeling with statistical analyses – a fascinating program which is usually offered only inside the U.S. After the first two rounds in 2009 and 2010, EITM Europe again offers this training to young scholars at the University of Mannheim in 2011. In highly interactive classes with specialized teachers, EITM Europe introduces into the latest developments in game theory and spatial theory using Bayesian statistics and computer-assisted textual analysis to evaluate their explanatory power.

Courses

The EITM Europe 2011 is comprised of four seminars over the course of a two week period from June 26st to July 9th. Seminars are held in English with relatively small classes.

  • Refresher Course in Mathematics and R (Martin Elff, University of Essex)
  • Theoretical and Methodological Foundations (Andrew Martin and Randall Calvert, Washington University St. Louis)
  • Agent Based Modeling (Michael Laver, New York University)
  • Quantitative Analysis of Political Texts (Will Lowe and Sven Oliver Proksch, University of Mannheim)

Tuition

Tuition is 1000 Euros and includes the courses. Accommodation with breakfast in a nearby hotel in double bedrooms is available for additional 500 Euros.

Application

We welcome all applications by graduate students and junior faculty interested in formal theory and empirical analysis. The program is primarily directed towards political scientists and political economists but we very much welcome applications from other fields of social sciences. The application deadline is April 4, 2011.
