The Institute for Studies in Industrial Development (ISID) is organizing a two-week Training Programme on Research Methodology & Project Formulation during 7th January — 19th January 2013. The objective of the course is to expose the participating young Ph.D scholars and lecturers to the recent developments in the Indian economy and to familiarise them with techniques and methods used in contemporary research on the subject. The course is a multi-disciplinary one that seeks to: i) introduce the participants to conceptual issues relating to their research interests/topics and emerging areas for research; ii) improve their skills and ability to undertake research on those issues with appropriate data and statistical tools; and iii) develop research methodologies using advanced estimation techniques.
Young researchers/teachers in academic institutions, colleges and university departments – who are primarily from social science disciplines and who are interested in pursuing research form the target group of this programme. A batch consisting of 25 participants will be selected based on merit of the scholar. A nominal fee would be charged from the selected participants: @ 800/- for lecturer or equivalent; @ 400/- for scholars getting fellowship, @ 200/- for those without any fellowship or financial support and no fees for SC/ST scholars. The selected scholars will be reimbursed railway fare equivalent to 2nd sleeper class travel (to and fro) from the place of study/work. For outstation participants there is a provision for boarding and lodging in Delhi for the duration of the programme.
Those desirous of participating in the programme may kindly send their brief CV along with a write-up of around 1,000 words on their area of interest so as to reach the Programme Coordinator, preferably through e-mail at <firstname.lastname@example.org>, on or before November 25, 2012.
