Just a reminder about the incoming deadline of January 31 for the CANSSI/INCASS postdoctoral grants. Those are restricted to members of CANSSI member institutions, though:

For the 2016-2017 year, up to two CANSSI Postdoctoral Fellowships will be awarded to suitable statistical sciences candidates working in CANSSI member institutions. Candidates should have received their PhD after March 31, 2013, and must have fulfilled all PhD requirements by the time of taking up the award.

a weekend in Banff

Yesterday, I flew from Amsterdam to Calgary to attend the Canadian Statistical Sciences Institute Leadership Retreat (15w2214) at the Banff International Research Station (BIRS). The point of this meeting is to brainstorm towards building a research policy and strategy for the newly created CANSSI. To which scientific advisory committee I joined last semester. I just hope my brain will remain functional enough to contribute to the discussion, if not to storm, despite the eight hour time lag! (The drive from Calgary to Banff was beautiful, with flashy yellow bursting from the green landscape: Fall is coming.)
