ERSA is pleased to invite applications for the Skill Development Training Programme in basic Econometrics for academics and postgraduate students (masters and PhD) with limited training in Econometrics and quantitative methods. The training is designed to provide basic econometrics training on a level that would be accessible to a person with a limited background in econometrics. In time, this will contribute to the ability of these academics to publish in journals with an interest in applied economic modelling, supervise postgraduate students with an interest in applied econometric research and as such an increase in research capacity in South Africa.
The training will run over three years and take place during one or two weeks of intensive training each year. The first year focuses on time-series econometrics; the second year on cross-sectional techniques and the third year on panel data techniques. The Cohort will learn about the theoretical background as well as gain experience with the empirical application using software like EViews, R and Stata.
