Here is an opportunity to do a funded PhD at the University of Glasgow as part of the ESRC’s AQM (Advanced Quantitative Methods) scheme.
The deadline is very soon: 30th April 2018 - please contact me by email if you are interested or if you know anyone who might be interested.
Patrick Bayer and I will co-supervise. Patrick on Strategic Estimation and the substantive background of international climate change agreements, and me on Relational Event Models.
For more details and eligibility, please follow the link below - after the general summary of the topic in the paragraph below.
ESRC AQM Studentship: Strategic and Relational Models in International Climate Treaty-Making
Existing statistical approaches ignore the strategic and relational contexts in which specific agreements are made; they only consider a government’s current choice, independent of how their own choice affects future behaviour by others (strategic
context) and what to learn from historic ratifications (relational context). This PhD project hence proposes to assess, both substantively and statistically, the relative merits of two advanced quantitative methods: Strategic Estimation and the Relational
Event Model (REM) to investigate international agreement-making to better understand the nature of government choice over time.
