Living Data Project - Data Rescue Internships
The Canadian Institute of Ecology and Evolution (CIEE) is Canada’s national synthesis center for ecology and evolution. They support syntheses of data, concepts and disciplines in order to answer some of the big questions in ecology and evolution. They also train researchers and advocate for scientific data to be open and preserved.
The Living Data Project is a nationwide initiative to preserve and breathe new life into legacy datasets in ecology, evolution and environmental science, and to train graduate students in best practices in data management, reproducible research, synthesis statistics and scientific collaboration. The project organizes data archiving internships, student-dominated working groups, undergraduate hackathons, multi-university courses, and a national certificate program. Learn more about the Living Data Project by viewing this information session presentation.
The Living Data Project is currently seeking senior researchers at or near retirement, or organizations, with legacy datasets to take part in our program. They will match you with a trained graduate student who will collaborate with you to archive your dataset using best practices.
