The primary members of the Centre will be Faculty Associates, who are current Western University faculty members. Faculty conducting research on the use or creation of methodological tools as well as those using rigorous quantitative methods to investigate substantive questions will be eligible. The roster of Faculty Associates will be reviewed by the Executive Committee every three years at a minimum, and new Faculty Associates will require approval of the Committee.
CCQSS will also involve graduate students and post-doctoral researchers working in relevant fields.
In addition, post-doctoral fellows working in relevant fields will be eligible to become Post-Doctoral Associates of the Centre. In future years, external funding will be sought for the establishment of an in-house stipendiary Post-Doctoral Associate position within the Centre. Specifics of student involvement are discussed later on in this proposal.
