A Theo Murphy Initiative (Australia)

Working in research today means working with data. Thus, early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) need a range of skills relating to research data science, including how to look after and use data that is core to their research.

This winter school is aimed at EMCRs who already have experience collecting and analysing data, but are looking to take their data skills to the next level and become more effective using data for their research. 

The Australian Academy of Science, in association with CODATA and RDA, would like to invite EMCRs from various disciplines to apply to participate in the Research Data Science Winter School in Brisbane on 12-15 June 2018.

What will you learn?

The program is based on the successful run regularly by the International Council for Science’s (CODATA) and the (RDA). The program is designed to teach and refresh all the basic concepts that programming depends on, and learn key considerations on working with data by engaging with experienced data scientists.

The Research Data Science Winter School will feature sessions on: Open Science, 2 days of hands-on sessions by Software Carpentry on R programming; followed by 2 days of tutorial based sessions on Research Data Management, Research Computational Infrastructure and key considerations for managing, analysing and sharing your research data.

The .

The selected applicants will be partially supported to attend the 4-day program in Brisbane. Further details, including an Access Grant scheme, are available as part of the application process.

Who can apply?

The application is open to EMCRs from different disciplines working with data as part of their research.

The theme of the school will be Smart Cities and EMCRs whose research aligns with theme will likely find it most useful. This includes, but is not limited to, researchers working in the following areas:

  • urban informatics
  • social sciences
  • demographics
  • environmental sciences
  • health sciences
  • population health

We encourage applications from EMCRs working in and around the above-mentioned disciplines. Additionally, we particularly encourage expressions of interests from EMCRs who meet any of the following:

  • identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander
  • are based in regional areas

Eligibility

Early- and mid-career researchers who have received their PhD within the last 15 years (excluding any periods of career interruption) are eligible to apply. You must be a to apply. It is free to sign up as a member.
To apply you must complete the expression of interest form by Sunday 8 April.  
Successful applicants will be notified by May.
Apply by completing the .

Applications will be assessed against the following criteria, taking into account experience relative to opportunity:

  • equity, diversity, inclusion principles
  • proficiency in the selected programming and script languages
  • benefit for your career and potential benefit to research community.

Researchers applying through this application form need to be based in Australia at the time of the School. Two places will be reserved for international researchers, from Papua New Guinea or Indonesia. International researchers will be selected by partner organisations in their home country: the Indonesian Academy of Sciences or Papua New Guinea Research, Science and Technology Council.

Partners

The Theo Murphy Initiative (Initiative)

The supports activities which provide tangible benefits to Australia’s early- and mid-career researcher (EMCR) community, with the overall goal of furthering scientific discovery. Activities are managed by the Australian Academy of Science and funds are made available by the generous support of the Royal Society through the Theo Murphy (Australia) Fund.

CODATA

is the Committee on Data of the International Council for Science (ICSU).  CODATA exists to promote global collaboration to improve the availability and usability of data for all areas of research.  It supports the principle that data produced by research and susceptible to be used for research should be as open as possible and as closed as necessary.

RDA

(RDA) enables data to be shared across barriers through focused Working Groups and Interest Groups, formed of experts from around the world – from academia, industry and government. Participation in RDA is open to anyone who agrees to its guiding principles of openness, consensus, balance, harmonisation, with a community driven and non-profit approach.

Software Carpentry
