Hi Folks - 

The Duke Network Analysis Center (DNAC) and the Duke Population Research
Institute, with support from the  NICHD, will be hosting the fifth,
week-long Social Networks and Health workshop from May 11 - 15, 2020.  The
program from last year is here: 
2019.php and general registration will go live in March.

We are writing now to invite applications for Fellowships to the workshop.  

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 fellows can access throughout the year 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.  Due to NIH policy, we can only consider
applications from US citizens or permanent residents and can only cover
domestic travel costs.  

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, we need two things.  First, please send an
email with your CV and a brief (not more than two pages) description of
research project you propose to work on over the year to

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

.         Statistical Models for networks (ERGM, AMEN, SOAM)

.         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 

We can waive the registration fee for a limited number of participants from
universities without means to cover the costs or scholars under-represented
in the SN&H field, please contact Moody to inquire.
