This week-long workshop, held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will bring together PhD students, newly graduated PhD researchers, and junior faculty who are interested in topics related to disability and retirement research in the United States. The goal of JSIT is to provide emerging scholars with training to develop research ideas and with mentoring to write an initial research proposal. The research proposals that scholars develop through JSIT may be eligible for small grants or other support. JSIT is supported by the Social Security Administration Retirement and Disability Research Consortium.

 

This interdisciplinary training will be led by faculty from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and other institutions. This interactive workshop will include group and individual work, as well as seminar style presentations. Each participant will have access to a mentor and support to develop a research proposal over the course of the week. Workshop topics will include:

 

  • Strategies for formulating research questions and hypotheses
  • Working with data sets
  • Communicating and translating research
  • How to get the most out of a mentor relationship
  • Grant writing basics
