Dear Australian colleagues,
 
Please see attached advert for the 4th New Zealand Microbial Ecology Consortium (NZMEC) meeting, to be held at the University of Auckland on 18-19thFebruary 2016.  Registration for this meeting is free, and we think you’ll agree that there is a very strong line-up of speakers.
 

Seeking Volunteers for August Science Festival
 
Dear JAMS members and friends,
 
I will be coordinating JAMS' stall at the Australian Museum Science Festival this year in August. This is where we bring the joys of microbiology to the public and especially to school kids.
 
Please see the 2014 brochure for an idea of last year’s function.
 
I am seeking volunteers to help run our stall on the 11th ,12th ,13th ,18th ,19th , and 20th of August. Each day will be divided into a morning session (9am – 12pm) and an afternoon session (12pm – 3pm). Please let me know if you can contribute half a day (or more!) to this event. It is a lot of fun, and you will be helping to inspire our next generation of scientists.
 
I am also seeking ideas for activities for the stall, if you have anything that would make a good demonstration or quick hands-on activity please let me know.

Hi all
 
Please be aware of the following courses being advertised to run at HIE in the next few months. These are a good opportunity to hone your skills in essential and commonly-used science technologies.
 
1)      ‘Data Analysis And Visualization With R' Course - Monday 13th April to Friday 17th April 2015
 
The R statistical computing environment has become a standard for scientific data analysis, visualization and reproducible research. At the HIE, we offer an introductory course to help you climb the steep learning curve. This five-day course is aimed at postgraduate students and staff, and is for newcomers to R.
UWS staff and students can enrol at no charge.

Registration is now available!

The 4th Annual JAMS Symposium will be held on Wednesday the 25th of February 2015 at the Australian Museum followed by an evening meal amongst the dinosaurs. We have a fantastic guest speaker line up for the symposium including Colin Murrell, Stefan Wuertz, Lisa Moore and Kat Holt. We promise no less than a night to remember.

Attention students! There is a student poster session with a prize of $500 for the winner.

The symposium and dinner will be preceded by a two day workshop (23rd - 24th February) also at the museum. The main purpose being to introduce postgrads and early career postdocs to current approaches used in scruitinising microbial community and genomic datasets. 

This year's workshop is hands-on and will require a 64bit laptop with a minimum of 2GB of memory. Attendees will also need to install VirtualBox. Workshop registration cost is $290.

Registration and payment for both events is being provided through EventBrite. Please follow the links provided below.
