We've launched our new podcast initiative, "Science in Progress"!!
This is a podcast where our very on Rob Crystal-Ornelas interviews current graduate students from across the country about various topics they hold near and dear. The goal of this initiative is for students to feel connected, learn from each other, talk about their passions, and commiserate over similar failures. The Student Section has noticed friendships blossom at annual meetings, but it is difficult to stay in touch - here's our first attempt!
Currently, episodes are launched every Wednesday. Search "Science in Progress" anywhere you get podcasts or visit the our homepage for the current episode (http://www.esastudents.org/).
Have something you're dying to talk about!? Email email@example.com to get on our list to be interviewed and on the podcast. Most interviews are conducted over Skype. We'd love to hear what you think! twitter: @esa_students
This Farside image will identify new job postings from here on. All jobs posts will begin with links to standard jobs boards, such as the ESA Ecophysiology Jobs Boards (which is awesome!), Texas A&M, ECOLOG, followed by the job postings. If you are familiar with job boards that are available at University websites and well-maintained, or if you are seeking applicants, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the appropriate information. Follow the link to see the jobs...
Article on career outlook published in Ecosphere by some of ESA Student Section members!
How do we ensure the future of our discipline is vibrant? Studentreflections on careers and culture of ecology
Rapid Ecology is a new community-science blog, written for ecologists, by ecologists. Science blogs are significant drivers of scientific discourse, yet only a few blogs have broad visibility. Rapid Ecology is intended to address this issue by providing a platform for many voices. If you have something to say and you’d like other ecologists to hear you, Rapid Ecology is designed to be your megaphone.
You can find Rapid Ecology at http://www.rapidecology.com and take a closer look at the submission guidelines at https://rapidecology.com/submission-guidelines/. You can also follow Rapid Ecology on Twitter at @RapidEcology. If you’d like to submit a post but am unsure about the topic or have any questions about Rapid Ecology/blogging in general, please e-mail Luke Lamb at email@example.com. He is the managing editor at Rapid Ecology and also your Student Section Secretary!
EarlyCareer Ecology Webinars
The ESA - Early Career Ecologist Section presents a series of webinars for budding ecologists including late-stage graduate students, postdocs, early career faculty, non-academic ecologists, and beyond. The webinars will be hosted over Zoom (www.zoom.us). You will need to download and install Zoom (free) prior to attending the webinar. To receive an invite for any of the webinars, fill out your contact information in this Google Survey Form: http://bit.ly/2p6bVyG
February 1 is the deadline for the NIMBioS Tutorial, "The Search for Selection," to be held June 18-22, 2018 at the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis. The intended audience is advanced graduate students, postdocs, and faculty with an interest in searching for targets of selection, be they particular genomic sequences or particular traits. The workshop is applicable for population geneticists, genome biologists, evolutionary ecologists, paleontologists, functional morphologists, and just about any biologist who ponders on how to formally demonstrate that a feature (or features) of interest might have been shaped by selection.
LC comment: This is a short-coure on analyzing species community data with the PC‑ORD software package, which is proprietary software but the workshop would offer students basic knowledge of the techniques. Fees for students looks to be ~$250, but talk to your advisor and maybe your Department or Research Grant can pay for the course ??
