PART-FUNDED SCHOLARSHIPS - Stable Isotope Mixing Models Using R

https://www.prstatistics.com/course/stable-isotope-mixing-models-using-r-simm05/

We have just had a late group cancellation for the above course. The
institute involved in collaboration with PR statistics are using the
cancellation fee to subsidise up to 10 places at 40% off reducing fees to
£300 from £500.00 for this week long intensive course.

This course will take place from June 10th – 14th in Glasgow City Centre
and will be delivered by Dr. Andrew Parnell and Dr. Andrew Jackson who
develop the SIAR, Mix SIAR R package.

Applications should be sent to oliverhooker at prstatistics.com and contain
the following.

1. Full name
2. Institute name
3. PhD subject title or Post doc research questions
4. Do you hold a funded position
5. 150 words why this course would be relevant to your research or how it
would help.

Application deadline is Thursday 23rd May and decisions will be made by
Friday 24th.

We still have ‘normal’ places available for anyone else interested.

Course overview:
This course will cover the concepts, technical background and use of stable
isotope mixing models (SIMMs) with a particular focus on running them in R.
This course will cover the concepts, technical background and use of stable
isotope mixing models (SIMMs) with a particular focus on running them in R.
Recently SIMMs have become a very popular tool for quantifying food webs
and thus the diet of predators and prey in an ecosystem. Starting with only
basic understanding of statistical models, we will cover the do’s and
don’ts of using SIMMs with a particular focus on the widely used package
SIAR and the more advanced MixSIAR. Participants will be taught some of the
advanced features of these packages, which will enable them to produce a
richer class of output, and are encouraged to bring their own data sets and
problems to study during the round-table discussions.
