We want to hear from you!
The CBA welcomes direct input from post docs and PhD students regarding the types of training activities they need to address their specific research requirements and interests.
Previously funded ECR-proposed workshops:
- Biodiversity in R: models and methods for spatial analysis
- Hierarchical occupancy-detection modelling
- Demographic inference for comparative phylogeograpy using Next-Gen sequence data
- Computational macroevolution and phylogenetic comparative methods
- Population and landscape genomics
- R Bootcamp
All Training support proposals should involve direct collaboration between CSIRO and ANU post docs / PhD students.
The overall focus of a Training support proposal should be within CBA’s core focus of incorporating genomics, informatics or spatial modelling into biodiversity analysis.
Funding may be sought for a range of training activities including (but not limited to) workshops, short courses, tutorials, invited speakers, seminars, meetings, retreats or discussion groups.
Independent to Training support funding, CBA will also support a small number of visiting scientists who, during their time in Canberra, will conduct a workshop / tutorial.

- Title of training activity.
- Speaker/s / presenter/s.
