Psychological scientists interested in learning more about mixed methods research—defined as the collection, analysis, and integration of both quantitative and qualitative data to provide a comprehensive understanding of a research problem—may be interested in a 2019 retreat held by the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) and the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health.
This Mixed Methods Research Training Program for the Health Sciences will be held in Baltimore, MD, USA, June 10-12. Costs to attend this retreat will be covered by the program.
“The Mixed Methods Research Training Program for the Health Sciences targets doctorally-prepared applicants who have evidence of their potential for conducting R01/R34 quality research in mixed methods applications, scientific leadership in mixed methods in their field, and would benefit from program participation,” says NIH. The program is only open to US citizens.
