The Canadian Cochrane Center is hosting a free webinar series! It is titled Q&A with Cochrane Back Review Group Editors, and it will address frequently asked questions pertaining to risk of bias, GRADE, and Summary of Findings tables. They are also offering a stand-alone session called Systematic review of preclinical animal studies: current state of affairs, which is currently a hot topic in research.
The Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD) is excited to invite applications for a 3-year PhD studentship in evidence synthesis in the health field, commencing October 2012. We are seeking an exceptional and self-motivated individual who wishes to develop their research skills and build a career in evidence synthesis, and who will make an active contribution to CRD's growing methodology portfolio.
