The American Psychological Association (APA) will sponsor four Advanced Training Institutes (ATIs) in the summer of 2015. These intensive training programs are hosted at research institutions across the country. They expose psychological scientists — new and established faculty, postdoctoral fellows, non-academic scientists and advanced graduate students — to state-of-the-art research methods. Participants also have the opportunity to meet and network with other scientists who have related interests.
The four ATIs are listed below. Complete information about these programs can be viewed on the Advanced Training Institute website.
- Structural Equation Modeling in Longitudinal Research
Arizona State University
May 26-30, 2015
Application deadline: March 24, 2015
- Big Data: Exploratory Data Mining in Behavioral Research
Arizona State University
June 1-5, 2015
Application deadline: March 31, 2015
- Research Methods with Diverse Racial and Ethnic Groups
Michigan State University
June 8-12, 2015
Application deadline: April 2, 2015
- Nonlinear Methods for Psychological Science
University of Cincinnati
June 15-19, 2015
Application deadline: April 9, 2015
|APA chose to sponsor these particular ATIs in response to continued interest among researchers. When offered previously, these ATIs drew substantial numbers of participants and received highly positive ratings.
The ATIs on Structural Equation Modeling and Big Data will be held at Arizona State University in consecutive weeks. In order to help make it feasible for people to attend both of these ATIs, participants who are accepted and register for both sessions will receive a 20 percent discount on their tuition for each institute.
Tuition for each ATI ranges from $375 to $1200, with students, postdoctoral fellows and APA members paying lower tuition. Participants may also apply for financial assistance.
APA arranges for on-campus or nearby lodgings and encourages all ATI participants to stay at the same location. Prices for lodgings have been negotiated at competitive group rates.
The APA Science Directorate also maintains a list of training opportunities for psychological scientists that are offered outside of APA. This list is updated throughout the year. Suggestions for additional programs to include on the list can be sent by email.
Note that ATI application deadlines are in March and April. Applications are available at the Advanced Training Institute website and must be submitted electronically through each institute’s Web page. For more information, contact ATI or (202) 336-6000.
