NERC Mathematics and Informatics for Environmental ‘Omic Data Synthesis Research Programme Discipline-Hopping Scheme
Date issued: 2nd October 2012 – 27th November 2012
A Discipline-Hopping Scheme to deliver part of the NERC Mathematics & Informatics for Environmental ‘Omic Data Synthesis (‘Omics) Research Programme.
The aim of these awards is to allow environmental science researchers to gain experience within a mathematics and informatics arena by ‘hopping’ into a range of partner organisations with specialist expertise and/or to encourage those with a background in mathematics and informatics to spend a period of time embedded within a leading environmental science research team. Discipline-Hoppers will be encouraged to communicate their findings to other researchers through the proposed Environmental ‘Omics Network (EON) including with potential end users of the research to get an insight into the transfer of research to real world applications to help achieve benefits for the environment and society. The scheme is intentionally flexible; designed to encourage knowledge transfer between research communities (including biological, biomedical and environmental disciplines from academia or industry backgrounds) and aimed at researchers at any point in their careers.
