  • Marine Ecology PhD position at Stockholm University Sweden

    20 September, by BRANDNER Melissa

    Application deadline 30th September 2016
    The Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences at Stockholm University invites applications for a four-year PhD position part of the project “Benthic metazoan diversity in Baltic Sea soft-sediments: Structuring factors at an ecosystem scale”.
    Maintaining the biodiversity and the structure of aquatic ecosystems is a vital goal for researchers and managers, particularly in the light of international legislative frameworks. Despite this, the true diversity of Baltic Sea sediments, particularly in regards to the meiofauna (invertebrates smaller than 1 mm), the most abundant and diverse metazoan group in marine sediments is a major knowledge gap in Baltic Sea ecology.
    The PhD student will be involved in the development and evaluation of DNA metabarcoding as a new, cost-effective approach for quantifying soft-sediment metazoan biodiversity for use in research and bioassessment. The student will use a combination of both (...)

    The start of last month saw the occurrence of the Fifth Metabarcoding Spring School held in Białowieża National Park , Poland. A variety of scientists attended from all over the globe to learn, share and inspire with unique stories of metabarcoding.
    The scientists at the Mammal Research Institute PAS in Białowieża National Park hosted this year’s workshop. And our hats go off to them for the organizational skills, warmth and hospitality. During the week, experienced metabarcoders gave lectures on their trials and tribulations in the field of metabarcoding, sparking conversations between the attendees. The end of the first day saw flash talks from all participants of the event, creating an icebreaker and showing the wide variety of applications for metabarcoding, including, dietary studies, environmental health, fundamental ecology and exploration of rare and ancient habitats.
    Pierre Taberlet (who is rumoured to run 8000 PCR a day!) taught technical aspects such as DNA extraction in (...)
