Dear SOCNET community,

The Duke Network Analysis Center (DNAC) will be hosting a second, week-long
Social Networks and Health workshop from May 22 – 26, 2017.  The Social
Networks and Health workshop will cover topics in social network analysis
related to studying health behaviors, including:

   - Data collection
   - Ego network analysis
   - Diffusion and peer influence
   - Communities in networks
   - Respondent-driven sampling
   - Network visualizations
   - Exponential random graph models (ERGM)
   - Stochastic Actor-Oriented Models (SAOM, or Siena models)
   - Agent-based modeling

The workshop will also contain a substantial lab component, which will give
attendees an opportunity to learn how to use the R statistical computing
language to analyze networks.  Last year’s presentations and labs are
available online at
social-networks-health-scholars-training-program.php .

We have funding for a limited number (up to 10) of SN&H fellowships.
Fellows will participate in the week-long training course, but also be
matched with a mentor to work on an ongoing research project that the
fellow has proposed. All participation costs (including domestic travel and
lodging expenses to come to Duke) for SN&H fellows will be covered by the
program.  There is additional funding available for fellows to travel to
meetings and otherwise support research meetings with their program mentor.
SN&H fellows must commit to presenting the results of their project at next
year’s workshop.  SN&H Fellowships will be primarily targeted at
pre-doctoral students, post-docs and junior faculty and is open to
participants both in the triangle and across the nation. Women, individuals
from underrepresented minority groups, and disabled individuals are
strongly encouraged to apply.

To apply for an SN&H fellowship, please send an email with your CV and a
brief (no more than 1 page) description of research project you propose to
work on over the year to [log in to unmask] by Feb 1, 2017.

All the best,
