The 2023 season of call for applications of BIOS2 is open! There are several opportunities available: undergraduate fellowship, postdoctoral fellowship for persistence and graduate student fellowship. Applications for the undergraduate and postdoctoral fellowships will be open until the positions are filled, and the graduate student fellowship applications close on August 18, 2023.
This is the 2022 Call for BIOS² Fellows. This call is for current BIOS2 Fellows to renew their membership and/or funding and for graduate students to join the BIOS2 program.
Applications are due by August 10, 2022.
The Computational Biodiversity Science and Services BIOS2 training program is a NSERC-CREATE program. Fellows learn computational and quantitative skills from some of Canada’s best biodiversity scientists and apply skills to solve real-world problems through internships and working groups. BIOS² aims at widening opportunities and skill sets among students and postdoctoral fellows and increasing recruitment in biodiversity science in the Canadian job market.
BIOS2 training consists of instruction (courses, short modules, and summer schools), working groups and internships. Fellows will use their internships and working groups to solve real-world problems related to biodiversity and to get valuable professional experience outside of academia.
The NSERC-CREATE training program in Computational Biology BIOS2, in collaboration with the NSERC-CREATE Living Data Project from the Canadian Institute of Ecology and Evolution, are now accepting applications to participate in a student-led working group that will be held from January 23 to 27, 2023, in the Montreal Area, QC.
The theme of the working group is: Assessing the potential for climate-driven range shifts through multiple landscapes features across the Canada-US border.
The Government of Quebec’s Biodiversity Monitoring Network is the first large-scale project in Quebec to document changes in biodiversity on a large scale. It was developed through the 2013-2020 Action Plan on Climate Change in partnership with the Ministère des Forêts de la Faune et des Parcs (MFFP) and the Ministère de l’Environnement et de la Lutte aux Changements Climatiques (MELCC). Nearly 250 sites have been monitored since 2016, using about thirty indicators and taxonomic groups in a variety of environments (forest, tundra, bog, marsh, lake and river).
We are looking for a PhD student to synthesize the observations and develop interpretation tools.
The Lajoie lab at Université de Montréal (QC, Canada) is looking for a PhD student interested in studying the response of plant microbes to urbanization.
Do you have an exciting question in ecology, evolution or environmental science that would benefit from a sustained collaborative effort? This is an invitation to propose a topic for a synthesis working group.
