The Association of Indian Primatologists is happy to announce its first online workshop for budding primatologists!
One of AIP’s core objectives is to encourage networking among Indian students and early-career researchers involved in primate-related studies and support them by providing quality resources relevant to this field. The idea of conducting an educational workshop was first conceptualized during our meet in Bangalore last year. While we initially envisioned a hands-on, in-person workshop, travel restrictions due to the pandemic have led us towards developing a virtual workshop instead.
To this end, we have developed this Basic Course in Primatology! Since this workshop aims to introduce basic concepts and developments in primatological research in South Asia, it will cover a wide variety of topics ranging from behavioral ecology to molecular techniques. Head over to our schedule to look at the complete list of planned classes. Each class will be conducted by a resource person who has several years’ experience of working in this field - giving all the participants a glimpse into the possibilities that lie within the classic yet the ever-developing field of primatology. Have a look at the speaker's list to know about our faculty, several of whom also comprise the advisory committee for AIP as well.
Is this workshop for you?
If you’ve read this far, we’re inclined to say ‘yes!’. The Basic Course in Primatology has been designed for early-career researchers who are just starting out on their journey and would like to learn about the science of primatology more closely. It’s for those who want to hone their scientific skills and be introduced to various methodological tools within this field. You need not be an expert or have prior experience to register for this workshop. Anyone with an interest in this subject is welcome!
We at AIP, wanted to course accessible to as many participants without cost being hindrance at the same time covering basic logistic cost. This was achieved by creating 2 separate plans students, professionals. You can now register for the course based on your eligibility for following plans.
1) INR 500/- : Students (Undergraduate, post graduate and PhD students, Researchers without fellowships)
2) INR 1000/-: Professionals (Research professionals and Post Doctoral Fellows)
The classes that comprise this workshop will include short assignments conducted by the faculty. A certificate for having completed this Basic Course in Primatology will be provided upon successful completion of class requirements and attendance on all workshop days.
