A four-day postgraduate skills training course analysing very large environmental and ecological data-sets with advanced multivariate statistics (including big data analysis). This short course aims to provide integrated training for those needing a skillset of statistical approaches for industry-specific applications in ecology and environmental science, relevant to student research and employability needs.
The course fills a widening gap in skills provision in the current UK research landscape. The ability to analyse and interpret data underpins all ecological research and decision making: core skills valued not only by academics, but also by industrial employers such as institutes, NGOs and consultants.
Priority will be given to NERC funded PhD students.
