The National Microbiome Data Collaborative (NMDC) team is building an integrated data science ecosystem that leverages existing data standards, data resources, and infrastructure in the microbiome research space. The NMDC is launching the NMDC Ambassador program to provide training and support for early career researchers who are motivated to engage with their respective research communities to lower barriers to adoption of metadata standards.
We invite applications from early career leaders who are:
Familiar with the challenges of discovering, accessing, and reusing microbiome data
Committed to working with the NMDC to make microbiome data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR)
Motivated to engage with researchers in their community
Committed to inclusion, diversity, equity, and accountability (IDEA)
Please encourage qualified early career researchers to apply by May 21, 2021. For more details about the program, visit: microbiomedata.org/community/
