Hjort Summer School 2017 – Bridging Methods in Marine Science: From the Lab to Models

Espegrend Biological Station, Bergen, Norway 11. – 16. August 2017

The Program: To achieve a better understanding of the connectivity of lab and modelling work,  the 2017 Hjort Summer School has a strong focus on hands-on work. Accompanied by lectures, students will conduct lab experiments and link them to modelling experiences using examples highly relevant to the changing marine environment of today like mixotrophy, zooplankton fecal pellet production and carbon export.

Students are also asked to prepare a poster-presentation of  their own research. Upon completion, they receive a course diploma with a recommended 3 ECTS.

Participants, Costs:  The course is aimed at earlier career scientists and students within the field of marine sciences. All course costs (accommodation & food) are covered, however travels will have to be paid by the student. A limited number of travel grants is available (for details see application form).

To apply, please fill in the Online application form and upload a short CV and a letter of support from your supervisor.
