Eco-Stats grant funding for 2012-14

Some good news from the Australian Research Council (ARC) - they have agreed to extend Eco-Stats funding for another three years, offering $100K/year for 2012-14.  The funded project is titled "New approaches to predictive modelling of high-dimensional count data to study climate impacts on ecological communities", and its content reflects recent changes in Eco-Stats research to focus more on the development of predictive modelling approaches (rather than hypothesis testing) for multivariate ecology.  This funding will be used to hire another Research Associate or Research Assistant to join the team and assist in developing new predictive modelling approaches (applications close November 30!).
