Could species occurrence or specimen data generated in the past or by other studies and biodiversity inventories take your research to new heights? Canadensys invites you to express your interest in a workshop about its New Research Initiatives.

Canadensys, a nationally — and internationally — recognized resource of primary species occurrence data is looking to develop new approaches to research related directly or indirectly to biodiversity, in collaboration with a broad cross-section of Canadian scientists. This workshop will provide an opportunity to explore these new approaches and define their needs for data and tools in preparation for the Canada Foundation for Innovation 2015 cyber-infrastructure initiative.

The Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) just annouced the launch of Professor exchange program for members of the Strategic Clusters. The program aims to encourage international and interprovincial mobility among professors with research activities that fall within the scientific program of one of the Strategic Clusters funded by the FRQNT.For Calcul Québec, the project should be related to scientific computing.The program is quite similar to the International Internship Program. The clusters are responsible for selecting candidates through an internal competition, and selected candidates are then recommended to the FRQNT. In the case of Calcul Québec, the deadline to submit your application is Friday, november 7th, 2014.
