Visiting Scientist Support

Annual value



 Claire Stephens

A major objective of CBA is to enhance collaboration and training opportunities via external visitors who will conduct a workshop and/or seminar open to CBA members during their visit to Canberra.

Previously funded visiting scientists:



Proposed visitors should be nominated by lab leaders from at least two or more CBA partner institutions (ie. ANU, CSIRO, UC) and plan to visit these institutions during their time in Canberra. Their research field/s should complement CBA’s biodiversity science focus, eg. evolutionary biology, population and ecosystem ecology, genomics, bioinformatics, and/or spatial modelling.  

As a condition of CBA support, the visiting scientist will need to present a workshop and/or seminar that is advertised to CBA members (and elsewhere when appropriate). It can be held at ANU, UC or CSIRO.

If required, the CBA can provide coordination support, e.g. advertising, registration, venue and flight bookings, etc.
