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 a lab leader(s) from at least one (or more) CBA partner institutions, ie. ANU, CSIRO, UC, and plan to visit this (these) institution(s) during their time in Canberra (or other CSIRO sites). 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 (other venues can be proposed if required).

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