The Jon Rasbash prize for Quantitative Social Science

A new award - The Jon Rasbash prize for Quantitative Social Science - has been established to commemorate the contributions to quantitative social science of Jon Rasbash, who was Professor of Computational Statistics and Director of the Centre for Multilevel Modelling at the University of Bristol. Jon was principally known for his development of multilevel methodology and its software implementation and for his research on studying social relationships within families.

The £500 prize recognizes early career achievement in the development and/ or application of advanced quantitative methods in any social science discipline. Applicants should be UK residents and in the first 10 years of their research career (including periods of postgraduate study).

The prize will be awarded on the basis of a research paper published in a
peer-reviewed journal in 2010 or 2011. The applicant should be the sole or lead author of the paper. Submissions by 1 December 2011.
