Predoctoral Training in Advanced Data Analytics for Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (BSSR) - Institutional Research Training Program [T32]

https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-OD-19-011.html

Purpose

The Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and participating Institutes are launching a new Predoctoral Training in Advanced Data Analytics for Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (BSSR) Institutional Research Training Program [T32]. This Funding Opportunity Announcement solicits applications for new Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (BSSR) predoctoral training programs that focus on innovative computational and/or data science analytic approaches and their incorporation into training for the future BSSR health research workforce. The vision of the Advanced Data Analytics for BSSR training program is to support the development of a cohort of specialized predoctoral candidates who will possess advanced competencies in data science analytics to apply to an increasingly complex landscape of behavioral and social health-related big data. 

NLM is interested in supporting training for a biomedical informatics/data science workforce prepared to make conceptual and methodological advances to meet unique data challenges in behavioral and social science research, including approaches that foster FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable) practices. Areas of interest include but are not limited to training in discovery, digital curation, analytics, modeling, statistical methods, visualization, privacy and next-generation mining approaches for reusable digital data objects.
