The Canadian Institute of Ecology and Evolution, as part of its NSERC-CREATE Living Data Project, is now accepting applications for graduate students who wish to participate in a working group. Students will gain valuable experience in synthesis science, have the opportunity to co-author publications, and may be eligible for two course credits. Students must be currently registered in a graduate program in ecology, environmental science, evolution or a related discipline in a Canadian university. Students should either be enrolled in a CIEE or BIOS2 member university, or they or their supervisor must be a current CSEE member. The highest priority will go to students who have already taken the Living Data project courses “Synthesis statistics for ecology and evolution” and “Scientific collaboration in ecology and evolution” or who will take these courses in fall 2024. Together with these two courses, participation in this working group will fulfil most of the requirements for a CIEE Certificate in Synthetic and Collaborative Science. Students who have participated in a previous Living Data Project working group are ineligible.
