The Roscoff Biological Station (France) organizes each summer a hands-on introduction to marine algae and plants with an emphasis on seaweeds. Seaweeds are collected during field trips so that an understanding of the organisms in their natural environment is acquired. Laboratory methods emphasize the use of essential literature, on-line tools and microscopic examination in order to understand the morphological and reproductive details relevant to this purpose. Students will become familiar with species identification, their morphology, biology and ecology.
PLOCAN is an initiative committed with both its adjoining socioeconomic environment and the international excellence in science and technology. Hence, it promotes this call which is oriented towards university students in the marine-maritime and technological scopes, as well as technicians/ professionals of the sector. The objective is to train them in theoretical and practical abilities and skills concerning underwater vehicles, as gliders.
The Archipelago Research Institute's field station Seili, Finland, will this year host a training course on zooplankton identification. The course builds upon the more than 50 years of experience the Archipelago Research Institute (ARI) has in conducting multidisciplinary research of the Baltic Sea, with a special focus on the Archipelago Sea. The Institute provides long-term monitoring data e.g. on hydrography, zooplankton and Baltic herring (Clupea harengus membras), and strong scientific expertise on long-term environmental monitoring and modeling decadal datasets.
The Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM, University of Oldenburg) is hosting a summer school in 2017, titled 'Introduction to Data Analysis'. The course, running from July 30 - August 12, will focus on mathematical and numerical methods used in marine and environmental sciences.
The 2017 edition of EMOSE will be held in Porto at the Interdisciplinary Centre of Marine and Environmental Research (CIIMAR, University of Porto).
HOW TO APPLY: apply online before 5 May 2017
OUTCOME: all applicants will be informed by email on 31 May 2017
COURSE FEE: 200€
ACCOMMODATION & MEALS: EuroMarine sponsors the costs for all participants.
The University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice is offering interested individuals the chance to work on a research project as part of a four-week summer school this year. The event is open to people of all degree levels, from undergraduates to PhD students.
The first ICES course of the year, centres on the ICES fish stocks for which data and knowledge are insufficient to conduct a full analytical assessment of their state and exploitation. Known as category 3 and 4 stocks, these constitute over 30% of all stocks for which ICES provides advice.
The 4-days school aims at PhD-level students and early stage scientists with beginner or no notions of data assimilation intending to apply data assimilation as part of their research. The crash course will cover the basic notions of data assimilation, focusing on ensemble methods, illustrated with real-scale / operational applications and with the aid of practical exercises.
The event is organised in the framework of the Nordic Countries Centre of Excellence EmblA (https://embla.nersc.no/).
A new edition of an international two-week course on Established and Emerging Marine Model Organisms will take place at the Station Biologique Roscoff (France) on March, 6-17th 2017. The course will include theoretical lectures as well as practical lab work on key marine taxa currently used as experimental paradigms in several fields of biological research. Students will be actively involved in lab work, discussions and debates on modern reference literature. Participation to the course requires knowledge of fundamental principles of molecular biology and developmental genetics.
Looking for a Master's programme answering the needs of Blue Growth and Marine Biological Resources? Join the first international study programme focussed on study and management of the Biological Resources from the Sea. The IMBRSea programme is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and functions in close contact with the European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC), a leading European distributed research infrastructure.
