eResearch Training for Researchers

Training for Researchers

Here at the JCU eResearch Centre, we are passionate about making training available to researchers. Today’s researchers embark on increasingly complex careers in which big data management, cloud computing and programming are becoming more relevant. Acquiring sound data and computing skills can help researchers work more effectively in diverse disciplines and work environments. While researchers acquire some of these skills during their studies and work, formal training is increasingly being recognised as essential.

The goal of our training courses is to empower researchers to use software and data in their own work, as well as become advocates for best data management and computing practises.  Having access to these core skills allows researchers to foster efficient, shareable, and reproducible research practices.

The focus of our training courses is on people conducting and supporting research, often HDR Candidates and Early Career Researchers. The teaching material presented is accessible, high-quality and inclusive. In response to positive feedback from participants and ongoing uncertainty about COVID restrictions, all training workshops will remain online via Zoom for the first half of 2021. We expect to reintroduce some face-to-face training later in the year, while continuing to offer an extensive online program.

QCIF have a list of Training Courses and their Training Calendar available online.

In addition to courses hosted by QCIF for all the member institutions, we are able to provide JCU-specific training upon request. If there are courses you have missed and would like to participate in, please email If interest is high enough in the JCU Community (minimum 10 participants) we will offer tailored solutions.
