Training opportunities

We are currently looking for exceptional post-doctoral and junior faculty level researchers at UT MD Anderson. If you would like to come and work with me please do get in touch.

I cannot supervise doctoral candidate at UT MD Anderson however, I have provided supervision though an honorary contract at other Universities and would be willing to consider new students who were based at other Universities.

I still teach the University of Cambridge Psychometrics Centre courses on Item Response Theory and Computer Adaptive Testing using R and Concerto. These courses are designed to endow postgraduate students and researchers with the technical skills to conduct psychometrics analyses using IRT and create their own computer-adaptive tests using Concerto.

We provided these courses on-site at University of Cambridge (see here for dates of the next course) and can also offer training courses tailored to the needs of your institution. Arrangements for off-site courses can be made with Professor John Rust.

Feedback from previous courses:

|"The course was incredibly well-pitched.. it was the best course I have ever attended in terms of quality of teaching!"

| "Chris and Aiden were engaging speakers who clearly were very familiar with both the theoretical underpinnings of | IRT and CAT, as well as the Concerto platform. As instructors, they managed the diversity in skills and experience in | the classroom well."

| "A really great atmosphere and great teaching that fostered a collaborative learning environment."

| "I liked the 'spirit' of the workshop which was intense, motivating and very hands-on - thank you so much for a brilliant course!"

| "An excellent three days; it was incredibly informative, well-paced and well organised."

I was twice invited to talk on "Modern Psychometrics" at the School of Psychiatry, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden. The lecture received a mean rating of 4.6/5 (where 5 was excellent) and was described as "inspirational" in open-text feedback from attendees.
