  • Blockkurs 54370: Research Skills [GRIPS / lecture notes see GRIPS]


  • Seminar 54374: Theoretische Ökologie [GRIPS]

Focus module Theoretical Ecology

Students of the MSc Biology or MSc EEC can take the specialized lectures as part of the MSc module "Theoretical Ecology", which focuses on ecological data science. For details, see below. 

External participants

External participants (i.e. from other universities or research institutes) that want to take part in our courses (in particular online courses) need a gues account at the UR to be able to enroll in courses and get access to the material that we provide via GRIPS. To get a gues account, please follow these two steps

  • Check here if your university or institution is included in the list that can directly create a guest account. If you can get a guest account, create one.
  • If you can't create a gues account, please contact the course instructor via email. You will then get a password which you an use to create a guest account here.

After having received your guest account, you can enroll to the courses via GRIPS. The GRIPS link is provided after each course in the list above. 

MSc Schwerpunktmodul Theoretische Ökologie

The objective of this module (see also here) is to teach quantative skills that should enable students to answer questions about ecological processes from data. Skills that are taught in this module include

  • Applied biostatistics
  • Data Sciene, machine learning and AI
  • Simulations and dynamic models

If you are interested in participating, you should visit first Seminar 54374: Theoretische Ökologie, to get an idea what we are doing, and then take our R and stats block courses to train your data science / stats skills. More details here.
