If some time for dedicated thinking and analysis with some hand-picked minds would help you answer a burning environmental question, reach a new understanding, or develop more informed ways of managing our environment, consider applying for funds being offered by the Australian Centre for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (ACEAS).
Applications close on 18 November.
ACEAS is a virtual and physical facility of the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) that focuses on integrating, synthesising and modelling ecosystem data to improve our understanding of ecosystems and the impact on them of climate change and human activity.
Projects need to be framed in one of three ways:
- a targeted workshop, which allows a team to meet for four or five days at least once
- a working group, in which a group meets two or three times
- a sabbatical fellowship, which supports a single person to spend time working on their own or with working groups or workshops on fundamental data analysis and synthesis studies.
Applicants must use the ACEAS application form, which can be downloaded from the facility’s Preparing Proposals page.
