The Workshop Organizing Committee is soliciting applications from eligible early career researchers who are working in population and community ecology, computational biology, remote sensing, biogeography, informatics, phylogeography, or related disciplines. The Committee especially encourages applications from members of traditionally underrepresented communities.
Eligibility: Early career scientists who have completed their PhD, are no more than eight years post-PhD (at time of workshop), and are working in population and community ecology
Selection: Up to 30 participants will be selected; participants will receive awards of travel, lodging, and subsistence support to attend the workshop
Application deadline: Friday, February 8th, 2013
Materials required for submission: Applicants must submit a short list of recent publications and three brief statements on: 1) their research interests (300 words), 2) why they wish to attend and what they can contribute to the workshop (300 words), and 3) what they perceive as a critical gap (in knowledge, data, tools, or resources) that needs to be addressed for scientists working with continental-scale data (500 words).
Selection criteria: The workshop committee will select participants based on their scientific vision and creativity, experience and potential to work in collaborative teams, and to ensure an appropriate mix of disciplines and backgrounds. Applications will be reviewed in February and participants will be notified of their acceptance status by March 11, 2013.
To submit an application: Applications are now closed
