Dear Colleagues,

 

We are delighted to announce the second call for post-doctoral applications for the Liber Ero Fellowship Program. With funding from Canadian donors, the newly formed Liber Ero Fellowship Program supports exceptional post-doctoral fellows who address pressing conservation challenges of relevance to Canada. The Program aims to develop the next generation of conservation scientists, trained in the latest methods and in the skills necessary to affect policy and improve conservation of Canada’s wild places and natural resources.

 

The Liber Ero Fellowship is open to candidates from any country whose research furthers conservation goals within Canada. Fellows must be hosted at a Canadian institution, with mentorship teams drawing from expertise in non-governmental organizations, government, and universities. Applications are now being accepted, with a deadline of November 1, 2013. See http://liberero.ca/ for more details.

 

We are also pleased to announce the 2013 cohort of fellows:

 

• Anja Carlsson. Monitoring and managing the effects of industrial development on disease and stress in caribou and moose

• Christina Davy. Combining novel genetic methods for conservation and management of Canadian bats

• Brett Favaro. Evidence-based solutions for reducing the impacts of commercial fishing on bycatch and benthic habitat in the Canadian arctic

• Kevin Fraser. Tracking migration and declines of songbird populations: Conservation of a declining aerial insectivore, the Purple Martin.

Sincerely,

Wendy Palen

Assistant Director
