TSI is launching the Real-Time QCM MOUDI : a quartz crystal microbalance impactor by MSP. Combining two technologies to provide real-time accurate mass measurement, this model provides real-time mass concentrations and distributions.
A webinar is being organized on Thursday, April 5th, 2018 and you can register through this link.
During this webinar, TSI experts will describe the fundamental technologies employed in the Real-Time QCM MOUDI: highlighting the instrument’s key capabilities and providing examples of data collected by the instrument.

PHFI-HSPH GEOHealth Hub for Research and Capacity Building is organizing a course on methodologies for air pollution, climate and health data analysis. It will cover time series analysis, GLM and regression and analysis of longitudinal and clustered data among other things.
The course will run from January 15-19, 2018 and is currently accepting applications (Application form).
Deadline: Noon (12 PM) on December 22, 2017
Send your applications to Suganthi Jaganathan (please mention “short course” in the subject line)
Who should attend the course?
This course is designed for researchers who have Postgraduate degree in Public Health or related discipline and working in the area of environmental health and who want to deepen and extend their knowledge.
IS-Global are recruiting a PhD student to join a dynamic team in air pollution and urban environments. The student will develop new research on the health impacts of climate change and urbanization in a rapidly urbanizing population in South India. The project takes advantage of rich health and environmental data available through the Andhra Pradesh Children and Parents Study (apcaps.lshtm.ac.uk) and the CHAI project. This trans-disciplinary project involves collaboration international experts in climate change and development, epidemiology, and health impact assessment. The student will gain skills in quantitative health impact assessment, and manipulating diverse datasets from climate models, remote sensing, and epidemiological studies.
Deadline: November 20, 2017

Recently, someone contacted me to ask for help in writing a research proposal. While I am not an expert myself, I thought it might be helpful to put together a list of resources to help early career researchers as they set out to write grant applications.
Here are a few to get you started:
10 tips for a successful grant application
Also, talk to people who have written grants (and won them), and ask them for advice!
Finally, check out AuthorAID, an international network for researchers from developing countries
