Early Career Scientists Symposium 2012: biodiversity informatics
Friday, November 18, 2011
EEB invites the nominations of outstanding scientists early in their careers to take part in the international Early Career Scientists Symposium on biodiversity informatics and its application to research in ecology and evolutionary biology. This symposium will be held in Ann Arbor, Mich., Sunday, March 25, 2012. Eight scientists and a plenary speaker will be selected to present their work. We are interested in scientists who are pursuing cutting-edge approaches to biodiversity sciences that integrate and/or synthesize informatics resources, including genomic/genetic, phylogenetic, morphological, geographic, and ecological datasets. We are especially interested in scientists who are leveraging information from natural history collections.
Early career scientists are defined as senior graduate students (who stand to receive their Ph.D. within one year), postdoctoral researchers, and first- or second-year tenure-track faculty. A colleague or advisor must provide the nomination.
A nomination consists of a brief letter of recommendation addressing the nominee’s scientific promise and ability to give a good talk, the nominee's curriculum vitae, and a brief abstract of the proposed presentation (< 200 words, written by the nominee). Nominations may be sent electronically (in one file if possible) to email@example.com using the nominee's name as the subject line (last name first, please). More information will become available on the Early Career Scientists Symposium 2012 website.
All nominations must be received by February 3, 2012. Selected participants will be contacted in mid-February 2012.
For more information, contact Cindy Carl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
