SEEKING STUDENTS FOR PHD IN INQUIRY METHODOLOGY



SEEKING STUDENTS FOR PHD IN INQUIRY METHODOLOGY

The Inquiry Methodology doctoral program, housed in the Indiana University School of Education, now offers a PhD in Inquiry Methodology (also referred to as Research Methodology) with three possible areas of focus.

Doctoral students in Inquiry Methodology receive rigorous training in one of three research methodology areas: qualitative inquiry, quantitative inquiry, or an integrated track. Graduates of research methodology programs are in high demand and enjoy a number of job opportunities, including academia, research institutes, government, and the commercial sector.

Possible areas of focus include educational and social science statistics, psychometrics, evaluation, ethnography, discourse analysis and so forth. In a climate that heavily emphasizes scientifically based research supported by sound methods, Inquiry Methodology students will be well positioned to secure research positions in any number of areas such as education, psychology or other social sciences, both applied and theoretical.

To learn more about this program, including how to apply for admission and funding, please visit our website: http://education.indiana.edu/graduate/programs/inquiry-methodology/

Counseling Psychology Student Organization's mentoring program



This semester, the Counseling Psychology Student Organization (CPSO) is offering a mentoring program for prospective students who may be interested in applying for the counseling/counselor education master's program and/or the counseling psychology doctoral program through the School of Education at IUB. Having been through the application process themselves, the current graduate students in the organization understand how it can be stressful along the way. They hope that by reaching out and offering support to prospective students, it will make the process less tedious and more enjoyable.

If you are interested in receiving one-on-one mentoring, please fill out this survey:  http://tinyurl.com/pz72vta

In the survey, you may indicate areas of interest and special requests that you may have regarding mentorship. Although they cannot guarantee an exact match based on interests, they will do their best to accommodate you. Should you have questions or comments, feel free to email the program coordinator, Lei Wang, at lw55@indiana.edu .

Three fellowships offered by The Marcus Autism Center



The Marcus Autism Center, in conjunction with the Emory University School of Medicine and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, is offering three fellowships: the Simons Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience, the Simons Fellowship in Design Engineering, and the Cohen Fellowship in Developmental Social Neuroscience. Attached, please find a brochure describing the fellowships. I ask that you let us know that you have received this e-mail and that you forward it, along with the associated brochure, to students in Indiana University's Department of Pyschological and Brain Sciences.

Students who will receive a bachelor’s degree by June 2015 will be eligible for the positions. The fellowships will commence in July 2015, and they are 2 years in duration. Students can find further details at: cohenfellowship.org and simonsfellowship.org.

The training experience for the Cohen Fellowship in Developmental Social Neuroscience will primarily involve daily activities related to eye-tracking research, including operation of experimental equipment and paradigms, contact with infants and toddlers and their families, and responsibility for completing experimental protocols.

The training experience for the Simons Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience will involve developing methods for the analysis of visual scanning and eye-tracking data, computational models of visual salience, and data visualization techniques, all with the aim of advancing the understanding of autism and efforts at early diagnosis.

The training experience for the Simons Fellowship in Design Engineering will involve developing innovative design solutions to answer experimental research questions. These solutions offer an opportunity to explore human factors engineering, product prototyping, and the design of environments for neuroscience research.
