Former Dynamic Ecologist Chris Klausmeier passes on news of a great-looking graduate summer course he and Mathew Leibold will be teaching at Kellogg Biological Station:
ELME 2013: Metacommunity Ecology and Evolution
ELME is a summer educational program at the Kellogg Biological Station devoted to Enhancing Linkages between Mathematics and Ecology. ELME 2013 will focus on metacommunity ecology and evolution. In this advanced hands-on three-week course, students will learn the basics of metacommunity theory and apply their knowledge to independent modeling projects. A wide variety of approaches to spatial ecology will be employed.
Dates: June 3-21, 2013
Hours: Mon.-Fri. 9-5
Target audience: 12-18 graduate students and postdocs; exceptional undergraduates will be considered
Prerequisites: At least one semester experience in theoretical ecology/evolution. Previous exposure to metacommunity theory useful but not required.
To apply, email email@example.com the following:
– your CV
– a statement of research interests and why you’d benefit from the course
– a statement of relevant educational/research experience, including related coursework
– the name of a reference who you’ve asked to email a letter of support
Deadline for applications: March 22, 2013
Financial support to cover room and board and help defray transportation costs is available. Let us know if this is not necessary.
