Request a Grant Writer

Opportunity for USA, Canada, and International graduate studies and early-stage IHE faculty to participate in a workshop addressing genetics. The program is intended to introduce applicants in a range of social science discipline to the interpretation and estimation of different concepts of heritability; the biology of genetic inheritance, gene expression, and epigenetics; design and analysis of genetic-association studies; analysis of gene-gene and gene-environment interactions; estimation and use of polygenic scores; as well as applications of genomic data in the social sciences.

The two-week Summer Institute in Social Science Genomics introduces graduate students and beginning faculty in economics, sociology, psychology, statistics, genetics, and other disciplines to the methods of social-science genomics—the analysis of genomic data in social science research. The program will include interpretation and estimation of twin and family studies; the biology of genetics, gene expression, and epigenetics; design and analysis of genetic-association studies; analysis of gene-gene and gene-environment interactions; genetic estimation and use of polygenic scores; environmental pathways for genetic associations; ethical issues in social-science genomics; as well as applications of genomic data in the social sciences.

From the evening of August 8, to the morning of August 20, 2021, the Russell Sage Foundation (RSF) will sponsor the 4th Summer Institute in Social-Science Genomics, to be held at the Stoweflake Mountain Hotel in Stowe, Vermont, unless circumstances require them to change it to an online event.

The instructional program will be highly quantitative. Participants will be expected to learn relevant software packages and solve problem sets throughout the workshop. The schedule is designed to provide opportunities for students to discuss their ideas and research with the organizers, visiting faculty, and other participants.

GrantWatch ID#: 194160

Number of Grants:

If the event is in-person, to maintain social distancing, no more than twenty applicants will be invited to participate. (If the event is held online, then more than twenty applicants will be invited to participate.)

Estimated Size of Grant:

Assuming the event is held in-person, most participant costs during the workshop, including housing and most meals, will be covered, and economy-class travel expenses will be reimbursed by the foundation up to a set cap (covering most, but not all, of anticipated travel costs).

Term of Contract:

Next SISSG: August 8 - August 20, 2021

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Participation is restricted to Ph.D. students, postdoctoral researchers, and untenured faculty within 10 years of the Ph.D.

Account registrations are approved manually so please allow up to 48 business hours to gain access to the system.

RSF is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation, and depending on various factors including vaccination rates, CDC recommendations, and state/local policies, RSF may modify the institute to include online instruction or postpone in-person instruction to the following year. RSF apologizes for the ambiguity and uncertainty, but RSF wants to make sure that the summer institute is both a high quality and safe experience. RSF expects that a final decision on the institute will be made in late May or early June.
