The Russell Sage Foundation, in conjunction with the JPB Foundation, is sponsoring the first Summer Institute in Biological Approaches to the Social Sciences, a one-week workshop to be held at Northwestern University from June 10 – 14, 2019. This workshop is a broad introduction to human biological systems and will consist of didactic lectures, breakout sessions, and laboratory exercises. Attendees will (1) develop an understanding of the conceptual basis for integrating the social and biological sciences, (2) learn about the physiology of major bodily systems, and (3) gain familiarity with methods to analyze human biological processes. The target audience is post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty in the social sciences within 10 years of the PhD; applications from advanced graduate students will also be considered.  Most participant costs, including housing, meals, and travel will be covered.
