Postgraduate cursus: New frontiers in microbial ecology & climate change

Evenement

In November, a five-day course on microbial ecology & climate change will be organised on Schiermonnikoog. NIOO researcher Eiko Kuramae from the Department of Microbial Ecology and professor at Utrecht University is one of the organisers.

 

The main goal of the course will be achieved if the participants acquire novel ideas and techniques for their own research. The course is primarily aimed at PhD level students, but is also open to advanced Master level students with interest in microbial ecology.

This course is a combination of lectures, given by a limited number of expert teachers, and discussion to be raised by students and lecturers. During the period of the course the students will develop these concepts further, in groups and with the help of lecturers, which can potentially result in a publication in the form of a review or opinion paper (see Adam et al, 2016. Frontiers in Microbiology, doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2016.01079, which was developed during the third Frontiers in Microbial Ecology course, in 2015).
