Subject: Bayesian Modeling Workshop Opportunity

The National Science Foundation (award #: DEB-1145200) is sponsoring an ann=
ual, two-week workshop to provide intensive training in Bayesian modeling f=
or post-doctoral researchers, academic faculty, and agency scientists. Appl=
icants must have earned a PhD to be considered for the workshop, and applic=
ations will not be accepted from graduate students. Twenty participants wil=
l be invited each year. There will be no cost for participation in the work=
shop. A $1000 stipend will be provided to each U.S. participant, and a $700=
 stipend will be provided to each international participant (due to taxes w=
ithheld), to defray costs of travel. The fourth workshop will be held May 1=
8-27, 2016 at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO.
Goals of the Workshop
1. Provide a principles-based understanding of Bayesian methods needed to t=
rain students, to evaluate papers and proposals, and to solve research prob=
2. Communicate the statistical concepts and vocabulary needed to foster col=
laboration between ecologists and statisticians.
3. Provide the conceptual foundations and quantitative confidence needed fo=
r self-teaching modern analytical methods.
