Sê Investigador por três semanas!

Evento online

Evento de promoção da investigação na área da Estatística junto dos alunos de Licenciatura e de 1.º ano de Mestrado, promovido pelo CEAUL - Centro de Estatística e Aplicações da Universidade de Lisboa.

A atividade decorre de 14 de junho a 02 de julho de 2021 - os alunos incluídos no programa estão automaticamente inscritos no workshop de R “R in Real Life”.

As candidaturas devem ser enviadas para ceaul@fc.ul.pt, acompanhadas dos seguintes documentos/informação:

  • Curriculum vitae;
  • Carta de motivação;
  • Lista de unidades curriculares concluídas e as respetivas notas;
  • Temas a que se candidata por ordem de preferência (exemplo: 1.ª opção: CEAUL_T1, 2.ª opção: CEAUL_T2, 3.ª opção: CEAUL_T3, ...). 

As candidaturas vão estar abertas até dia 20 de maio e os resultados serão divulgados por e-mail no dia 01 de junho. O aluno candidato poderá ser contactado para uma entrevista em videoconferência, a realizar no dia 31 de maio. Os alunos apresentam um seminário (aprox. 15 min) sobre o trabalho desenvolvido no dia 02 de julho.

Durante as duas primeiras semanas do programa, os alunos participam no workshop de R "R in Real Life" (em inglês):

  • Horário: 14h30 às 17h30;
  • Workshop 1 (14 de junho): Introduction to R;
  • Workshop 2 (16 de junho): Working with Datasets using data.table;
  • Workshop 3 (18 de junho): Creating HTML and PDF Documents using R Markdown;
  • Workshop 4 (21 de junho): Data Visualisation using ggplot2;
  • Workshop 5 (23 de junho): Workshops Review & Using R in Real-life;
  • Workshop 6 (25 de junho): Case study: Women in Parliament Data.

Nota: Mesmo que não tenham interesse em participar no programa de iniciação à investigação, os alunos poderão inscrever-se no workshop.

This course aims to evidence the importance of natural history collections for the study of biodiversity, to show new tools and approaches to extract and disseminate biodiversity data from natural history collections and to increase awareness of young researchers for the scientific and cultural value of Natural History Museums.

The course SoilEco aims at introducing attendants to an updated state of the art of diversity of the soil biota and the functional roles played by soil organisms in key ecological processes.

In this course, we promote a multidisciplinary approach presenting the most recent findings on the topic and challenging the traditional way of considering symbiotic associations as exceptions and not as the rule.

The goal of this course is to provide to the participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including ecological and social aspects.

This course aims to explore ways of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, such as policy makers, industry, general public (including students and teachers), through their engagement and participation in citizen science activities.

This course introduces the field of island biogeography, a discipline that has long influenced other research areas such as macroecology, community ecology, evolution and conservation biology.

Scientists, as the main actors in the production of scientific knowledge, have the responsibility of having an active voice in communicating this knowledge – and that can be achieved for example by a conscious use of the communication tools at their disposal and a better articulation with journalists, among other means.

This course aims at providing students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

This course aims at providing students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. It also includes an introduction to modeling, simulations and Bayesian statistics.

Under the general framework of Global Change Ecology, the goal of this course is to provide the participants with the most recent and practical knowledge on the use of Functional Diversity.

The course provides essential skills and knowledge that enable the participants to develop climate change adaptation strategies.

The objective of this course is to provide participants with basic knowledge on a) the fundamental aspects of experimental design and b) workflows, platforms and tools to increase reproducibility at all scientific levels.

This is a mostly practical course offering an overview on different community ecology and macroecological methods and software. These will include all steps of a research project, from the optimal sampling of communities to process inference from large-scale patterns of taxon, phylogenetic and functional diversity.

This course aims to walk through the grounds of modern botany studies, covering subjects that have been excluded from most academic curricula.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to predict the three-dimensional structure of nucleic acid and proteins from their sequence and use the acquired knowledge to improve or create new methodologies in molecular biology research and diagnostics.

The course aims at enabling the participants to use different methods to measure the impacts of pollutants on ecosystems. Basic knowledge will be provided through theoretical and practical lessons on how to select and use the most suitable metrics based on the analysis of multiple compartments of the ecosystems.

This course offers an overview of the different ways to measure biodiversity, and provides tips for the stratification of primary biodiversity data and the construction of variables that describe its various facets. It also includes an in-depth review of the different types of data used to measure biodiversity and their problems and limitations.
