NCEAS Open Science for Synthesis training course

Apply by Feb. 20: NCEAS Open Science for Synthesis training course (please forward)

The Gulf Research Program of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is sponsoring a hands-on data science course run by the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS). This three-week intensive training—Open Science for Synthesis: Gulf Research Program—is designed to help both early career (upper-level graduate students) and established researchers gain skills in data science, including scientific synthesis, reproducible science, and data management. Participants will receive support to cover economy round-trip airfare within the contiguous U.S. and be given accommodation in Santa Barbara for the July 10-28, 2017 training. NCEAS is accepting applications now; apply by 5pm PST on Monday, February 20, 2017.

The hands-on NCEAS training experience focuses on group synthesis projects that allow participants to apply the skills they learn in the training directly to research projects relevant to the Gulf Research Program. In past NCEAS trainings, these synthesis projects have led to publishable results for participants. Instructors for the training will include NCEAS Director of Informatics Research and Development, Matthew Jones, DataONE Director of Community Engagement and Outreach, Amber Budden and many others.
