“Future Oceans – Research for marine sustainability: multiple stressors, drivers, challenges and solutions”
A PhD Scholarship in Population Genetics is available at the National Institute of Aquatic Resources (DTU Aqua) with starting date 1st September 2013. The project will primarily be carried out in the Section for Marine Living Resources’ Population Genetics group in Silkeborg, Denmark. The PhD project is a part of a European Union joint research project assessing genetic effects of aquaculture on wild fish populations. The project is coordinated by DTU Aqua. It started November 2012 and finishes October 2016. The PhD project will have an independent profile and will be carried out in collaboration with international research partners. The successful applicant will be expected to take part in experimental work during shorter stays in Norway.
A SMART module in Applied Marine Biological Sampling and Data Collection is organised this October featuring four days of ship time on the Celtic Voyager and Celtic Mist and three days of intensive practicals and lectures in GMIT. Shiptime and practicals are supported by distance learning using discipline specific digital resources developed for the module.
This CPD module is accredited to 5 ECTs at postgrad level 9 and runs from September 30th to October 26th. Numbers are limited to twenty and the module fees are €750.
