We welcome all applications by graduate students and junior faculty interested in formal theory and empirical analysis. Applications which fulfil the requirements will be considered first.The program is primarily directed towards political scientists but we very much welcome applications from other fields of social sciences. Prior training in both game theory and statistics is necessary to follow the courses. Ideally, applicants should have completed courses in these areas before participation. In addition, applicants should be willing to do prepare quite extensive readings before coming to Torino. Knowledge in R is also required and applicants are expected to have obtained basic knowledge before the beginning of the courses.
