Call for Applications for a Two-Year Program of Research and Training

“Contributing to solutions for marginalized communities in the Arab region: A Two-Year
Program of Research and Training”
January 2019 – September 2020

The University of Michigan and Princeton University are pleased to announce a Call for Applications for early-career Ph.D.s (advanced graduate students will also be considered) for a two-year program consisting of four workshops focused on developing or enhancing skills in quantitative research design and methodology, as well as qualitative approaches. This four-part workshop program will bring together colleagues from across the MENA region to develop research projects focused on marginalized communities.  Particular emphasis will be placed on research concerned with the status and circumstances of women.  Additionally, a key focus of the training and workshops will be the collection and analysis of public opinion data, with data from Arab Barometer surveys made available and used for instructional purposes.

The first one-week workshop will be hosted by Kuwait University on January 26-29, 2019. Three follow-up workshops, each to be held in a different Arab country, will take place in summer 2019, winter 2020 and summer 2020. A final dissemination event will allow participants to share their research in a formal academic setting.

The 2019 workshops will be led by Amaney Jamal (Princeton University), Mark Tessler (University of Michigan), and other scholars affiliated with the Arab Barometer. Sessions will be conducted in Arabic and English. Professional fluency in both languages is required.
