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.
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.
