Wildlife Conservation Society Canada (WCSC) is leading a collaborative effort to identify and establish a comprehensive national network of Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) in Canada. WCSC will identify KBAs, which are sites that will contribute significantly to the global persistence of biodiversity, through the application of a new global standard, which is currently being introduced and adapted to the Canadian context.
CIEE and BIOS² are co-sponsoring a data-driven working group in biodiversity synthesis. We invite graduate students from CIEE Member Universities and BIOS² Universities to submit an application for a one week working group at UBC May 4-8, 2020. Applications due: March 6, 2020.
The objective of this activity is to provide graduate students the opportunity to get experience in team projects oriented toward biodiversity synthesis and data analysis. Providing students a stimulating training environment is central to the activity. Working groups consist of a small group of researchers who meet in person in a single location, and work intensively and collaboratively on a research question, using best practices in team science and digital collaboration.
Applications due: January 8, 2020.
We invite experienced biodiversity researchers from both academic (universities) and non-academic organizations (e.g. government departments, non-profit organizations, Indigenous organizations, community groups, industry) to submit proposals for a one week working group focused on a question in biodiversity science.
From November 15 to December 15, 2019, it is possible to apply to Calcul Québec as part of the International Internship Program of the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) 2019-2020.
Call is open until November 22, 2019.
We are now collecting applications for our Open PhD Project program!
This is a call for submissions of two half-scholarships for doctoral students: one in biodiversity science, and the other in social sciences, economics, or political science (i.e. outside the Natural Sciences and Engineering).
Each scholarship is 10 000$ per year and is supplemented with a 2000$ per year travel grant (renewable for 3 years). The student receiving this funding is required to participate in BIOS² training activities and to complete one internship of 3 to 4 weeks with a non-academic partner organization.
