Smithsonian Data Science Lab postdoctoral fellowships

The Smithsonian Institution Data Science Lab (datascience.si.edu) housed within the Office of the Chief Information Officer (SI-OCIO) in Washington, DC, is seeking two postdoctoral fellows to conduct independent research and digital humanities scholarship in collaboration with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative.

The Data Science Lab was recently formed in response to the dramatic increase in all forms of digital data across the Smithsonian (19 museums, 9 research centers, and a zoo). We seek to build collaborations both across Smithsonian units, as well as universities and other institutions. Members of our group work on a variety of data-intensive research topics, including biodiversity genomics and machine learning applications of digitized museum collections.

Please see https://datascience.si.edu/digital-humanities-postdoctoral-fellowships for details, and email (SI-DataScience@si.edu) or tweet (@SIDataScience) with questions!

Earth Lab Earth Analytics Education Initiative at CU Boulder

The Earth Lab Earth Analytics Education Initiative at the University of Colorado -- Boulder is building an innovative program that provides core in-market demand technical skills at the intersection of Earth and data science to undergraduate, graduate and professional students. The program includes formal courses, workshops, career development events with industry partners, paid undergraduate internships, an open online learning portal with global reach, and a professional certificate in Earth data analytics, one of the first of its kind in the country. We are committed to expanding the reach of Earth data science education for students across varying academic, professional, socio-economic and geographic dimensions to ensure broad accessibility to novel curriculum. All courses are offered through both online and traditional options, allowing students to participate in-person, online in real-time, or asynchronously by reviewing materials at their own pace.

A Primer in Biological Data Analysis and Visualization Using R

Author: Gregg Hartvigsen

    "Taught at a workshop on network analysis using R at the national Institute for mathematical and Biological Synthesis at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville."

Published: February 18, 2014 by Columbia University Press

Summary: This book guides readers through the processes of entering data into R, working with data in R, and using R to visualize data using histograms, boxplots, barplots, scatterplots, and other common graph types.  Hartvigsen covers testing data for normality, defining and identifying outliers, and working with non-normal data.  Students are introduced to common one- and two-sample tests as well as one- and two-analysis of variance (ANOVA), correlation, and linear and non-linear regression analyses. Also included is a secion on advanced procedures and a chapter inroducing algorithms and the art of programming using R.

Getting Started with R: An Introduction for Biologists

Author: Andrew P. Beckerman, Owen L. Petchey

    "Evolutionary Ecologists with over 20 years of combined experience using R for data analysis and visualization"

Published: July 22, 2012 by Oxford University Press

This book provides a fundamental introduction for biologists new to R.  While teaching how to import, explore, graph and analyze data, it keeps readers focussed on their ultimate goals-communicating their data in oral presentations, posters, papers, and reports.  It also provides a consistent workflow for using R that is simple, efficient, reliable, accurate, and reproducible.  The material in the book reproduces the engaging and sometimes humorous nature of the three-day course on which it is based.

The New Statistics with R: An Introduction for Biologist

Author: Andy Hector

    " He currently convenes and teaches statistics on the Quantitative Methods for Biologsits course for undergraduates at the Universtiy of Oxford.  He has contributed to several publications on eccologal analysis."

Published: March 15, 2015 by Oxford University Press

Summary: This book provides a contemporary introduction to the classical techniques and modern ectensions of linear model analysis.  It emphasizes on estimation-based approach that accounts for recent criticisms of over-use of probability values and introduces the alternative approach using information criteria.  It is based on the use of the open-source R programming language for statistics and graphics that is rapidly becoming the lingua franca in many areas of science.  Statistics is introduced through worked analyses preformed in R using interesting data sets from ecology, evoluntionary biology, and environmental science.  Data sets and R scripts are available as supporting material.
