This workshop will include advanced level training in phylogenetic methods, imaging techniques, DNA barcoding, NGS-based systematics, systematics theory, nomenclature and the taxonomic process, collection management, databases, publishing results, finding a job, and much more.
The workshop is designed for PhD students in the first half of their project, but applications will be accepted from anyone who is still within candidature. It is specifically designed for students undertaking projects that have a biological systematics component or are broadly relevant to systematics. There is a maximum of 30 places – available only to students enrolled in Australian and New Zealand Universities, on a first come basis. The registration fee is $400 but this will be reduced when we know the amount of sponsorship received. For more information, see this flyer.
