Post Doc Mentoring Lunch
Join Jeff McDonnell as he leads discussions around post doc and early career issues, including topics such as academic writing, grant applications, creativity, applying for jobs, research communication and creating a work-life balance. The event is held in Saskatoon, SK, Canada, but members abroad can attend via WebEx. Details in links below.
R Seminar Series Recordings
R is a powerful program for all types of scientific data analysis. Because R uses scripts, and is free, open source software (FOSS), it is also a very useful tool in doing reproducible research.
Global Water Futures and the Centre for Hydrology hosted a 5-part R Seminar series introducing the R program and how to use it. Below are recordings of these seminars.
- Part 1: Introduction to 'R' - coming soon
- Part 2: R Basics I - Working with Data - coming soon
- Part 3: R Basics II - Automating your Analyses - no recording available due to technical difficulties
- Part 5: How to Build R Packages
Other Early-Career Networks
The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) is an international and interdisciplinary organization for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, early faculty members, educators and others with interests in Polar Regions and the wider cryosphere. They compile workshops, courses, funding opportunities, as well as opportunities for an early-career representative on various committee and scientific roles. There is even a Canadian branch!
