R has become an extremely powerful and flexible platform for making figures, tables, and reproducible reports. However, R can be intimidating for first time users, and there are so many resources online that it can be difficult to sort through without guidance. To fill that need, this course is intended for learners who have little or no experience with R but who are looking for an introduction to this tool.
By the end of this course, students will be able to import data into R, manipulate that data using tools from the popular tidyverse package, and make simple reports using R Markdown. The course is designed for students with good basic computing skills, but limited if any experience with programming.
Senckenberg Biodiversity Genomics Symposium
Date: April 21st
Abstract Submission Deadline: March 21st
The Senckenberg Biodiversity Genomics Symposium is a one-day event co-organised by the LOEWE Center for Translational Biodiversity Genomics at the Senckenberg Research Institute and PacBio. Long-read sequencing is key to generating high quality, complete, and contiguous genome assemblies that can serve as reference assemblies for various species. New protocols dramatically reduce the requirements for DNA quantity making it possible to generate long-read data from individual, small-bodied organisms.
Scientists from Europe and beyond will share their experiences using highly accurate long-read sequencing, known as HiFi sequencing, to generate reference-quality genomes of taxonomically diverse organisms, ranging from plants, lichens, insects, and snails to vertebrates to address key questions. This event will feature a mix of scientific presentations, lightning talks, a poster session and breaks with opportunities to network with your peers.
Conservation Career Kick-Starter | Online course
The Conservation Career Kick-Starter is designed to help you get clear, get ready, and get hired in the conservation sector. Through the course you’ll create a personal career plan for starting work as a professional wildlife conservationist.
You’ll be guided by the experts at Conservation Careers and learn how the jobs in the sector, which one is right for you, what education and experience you need, how to apply and, how to get hired at interviews.
It will give you confidence in your job hunt and will make everything quicker, simpler and more fun!
The Conservation Career Kick-Starter includes:
Support from Conservation Careers via email, Zoom and in a private Facebook group.
3 Step-by-Step Modules organised into 17 Units to do at your own pace.
Be part of a community of course-mates from across the globe to share ideas, ask questions and support one another.
A workbook guiding you through a series of practical tasks, capturing all your learning, ‘ah-ha’ moments and key next steps.
You also get a year’s enrolment into the Conservation Careers Academy, which gives you access to around 10,000 conservation jobs each year plus lots more.
Everyone who completes the course receives a certificate.
Marine Science Graduate Student Symposium
Date: April 16th - 18th
Abstract Submission Deadline: March 19th
The 2021 Marine Science Graduate Student Symposium (GSS) will be planned and hosted by the Dauphin Island Sea Lab (DISL) graduate student organization. For those new to the symposium, this is a small-scale annual meeting specifically for graduate students to present their work to other students, traditionally hosted on a rotation between several Gulf Coast marine science institutions. It is a great opportunity to share work with other scientists at a similar career stage, and to get practice presenting. As with everything, COVID-19 has affected our ability to gather and share our science. However, we are dedicated to putting on the best symposium possible, and wish to use this opportunity to expand our reach to students at more institutions with this virtual option. We look forward to hosting you and learning about all the amazing research that takes place along the Gulf Coast and beyond!
2021 UMass Marine Research Symposium
Date: March 24th - 25th
Abstract Submission Deadline: March 17th
Hosted by the SMAST Graduate Student Association, the Intercampus Marine Science (IMS) Research Symposium is an opportunity for all UMass IMS Program faculty, research staff, and students to share their current or proposed research, receive feedback, and build their CV. This 2-day, virtual event will be held Wednesday, March 24 & Thursday, March 25, from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. The symposium is free and open to the public.
New Horizons in Conservation Conference
Date: April 18th - 20th
Abstract Submission Deadline: March 13th
The conference is an annual gathering of students and early career professionals who are historically underrepresented in the environmental field and/ or committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field. Conference attendees have opportunities to network, engage in hands-on workshops, and learn from leaders and visionaries in the environmental field.
Fifth Conference on Cetacean Conservation in South Mediterranean Countries
Date: April 13th - 15th
Abstract Submission Deadline: March 15th
The aim of the Conference is to assess the knowledge acquired on cetaceans in the South Mediterranean Sea, to identify potential gaps and to encourage the development of conservation actions in order to promote the implementation of ACCOBAMS decisions and recommendations. The Conference welcomes experts in cetacean-related science and knowledge, particularly from the South Mediterranean region, aiming at exchanging experiences and information and at discussing best approaches and priority actions towards a better knowledge on cetacean populations in the region. The Conference also aims at engaging students and academic community while raising awareness of future managers and stakeholders on these issues.
Landscape 2021 - Diversification for Sustainable and Resilient Agriculture
Date: September 20th - 22nd
Abstract Submission Deadline: March 15th
Landscape 2021 will bring together scientists from across disciplines with key actors to explore whether and how diversity and diversification can contribute to a more sustainable and resilient agriculture. Promising approaches reduce trade-offs between high productivity and use of external resources, the provisioning of ecosystem services, biodiversity and soil health as well as robust economic perspectives, social justice, cultural values and recreational opportunities.
Women in Conservation
Date: March 8th
Women in Conservation would like to invite you to our annual conference event!
Women in Conservation was born from discontent in the lack of diversity in speakers at The University of Exeter. Students decided to put on an annual conference showcasing the amazing women that have managed to overcome societal obstacles in conservation.
