– Meet the Junior Board, upcoming PhD/Post-doc meeting 

– NLSEB meeting 2022: save the date

– Predicting evolution workshops via the origins center

> Meet the junior board

Earlier this month the first NLSEB Junior Board was founded. The current members are Melanie Lindner (chair, NIOO-KNAW & GELIFES), Yumi Nakadera (VU), Nadja Brait (GELIFES), Alanna Leale (WUR) and Sam von der Dunk (UU). The Junior Board aims to connect junior members (PhDs/Postdocs) of the NLSEB community through a wide range of academic activities and events. One of these events is the upcoming NLSEB PhD/Postdoc meeting on April 25 2022 (save the date!). Stay tuned for further announcements and keep an eye on our new twitter hashtag #NLSEB_JB.

The NLSEB Junior board members are very excited to take on this task and encourage PhDs/Postdocs to get in touch with any ideas for additional activities and events that might help connect junior members of the NLSEB.

NLSEB 2022 meeting – save the date! 

We are planning for an in-person NLSEB 2022 meeting on 26 April 2022 in the Akoesticum, Ede. After having to postpone the 2020 meeting and having an online meeting in 2021, we hope to welcome you in person again in Ede in April 2022. We have three exciting keynote speakers: Eric Snijder (LUMC), Jaap Kaandorp (UvA) en Katja Peijnenburg (Naturalis). Registration and abstract submission will open later this year, so keep an eye on the website and emails from NLSEB.

> Predicting evolution workshops by the origins center

A subgroup of the Origins Center focusing on predicting evolution is organizing a series of (online) workshops for the Dutch predicting-evolution community. The goal of this workshop series is to teach each other techniques and “languages” used in different subfields of evolution to facilitate future collaborations. 

(info: )!

The next workshop is November 9th 2021 and it is about: “Fitness landscapes”. By Arjan de Visser  and Marjon de Vos.

The meeting takes place via Zoom, from 16:00-17:30, you can register here:
