The Advanced Quantitative Methods in Social Sciences interdisciplinary pathway offers postgraduate research training in the application of advanced quantitative methods in the social sciences. The pathway utilises expertise from a range of disciplines to provide training and supervision that emphasizes quantitative methods to a higher level than is usually offered.
The pathway is for social scientists who wish to learn advanced quantitative methods and apply these methods appropriately to answer particular substantive questions from their discipline. This group includes social scientists interested in interdisciplinary research involving the application of quantitative methods from one discipline (for example economics) to problems in another (for example politics).
The pathway is also for statistically trained researchers whose interests are more methodological. Projects may involve applying statistical methods used in other disciplines to social science problems, or developing novel statistical methods for analysing social-science data.
The pathway combines insights and methods from a number of disciplines and research groups including social and policy sciences, economics, psychology and health. Applications are welcome from those with backgrounds in social sciences and with appropriate prior training in quantitative methods, statistics or other related disciplines.
