One of the major objectives of the CBA is to build capacity through training of postdoctoral and postgraduate researchers.
The CBA welcomes input from our Early Career Researchers (Postdocs and PhD students) regarding the types of training activities they need to address their specific research requirements and interests.
Our Training support funding is available to ECRs for a range of training activities including workshops, short courses, tutorials and retreats.
Previously CBA-funded training activities proposed by ECRs include:
- Stochastic modelling meets evolutionary biology
- Estimating biogeographic history with BioGeoBEARS and PhyBEARS
- Nanopore sequencing for biosecurity
- A beginner’s guide to population genomics simulations with SLiM and slimr
- Putting pen to paper: Scientific writing for researchers
- Mechanistic niche modelling using NichemapR
- SNPs in population- and phylo-genomics
- Nanopore Sequencing Workshop
- 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
The CBA also helps facilitate ANU and UC students spending time in CSIRO labs, providing valuable exposure to CSIRO scientists and research. Co-supervised honours projects also afford an excellent opportunity to develop collaborative linkages between CSIRO staff and university researchers.
