NSF Advanced Training Program in Antarctica for Early-Career Scientists: Biological Adaptations to Climate Change

The United States National Science Foundation (NSF) will sponsor the 11th Antarctic Biology Training Program (for early career scientists) at McMurdo Station, Antarctica, in January 2018. The program is a collaboration between the University of San Francisco and the University of Southern California; and has a proven record of introducing participants to Antarctic science under realistic field conditions, and providing opportunities to understand and appreciate the complexities and logistical challenges of undertaking science in Antarctica.

Training Course on Zooplankton Identification, 4-8 September, Nauvo (Finland)

The Archipelago Research Institute's field station Seili, Finland, will this year host a training course on zooplankton identification. 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 training course is specifically designed to benefit undergraduates, post-graduate students, early-career researchers, professionals and educators, having coastal or marine related responsibilities, functions or interests.

ICBM Summer School: Introduction to Data Analysis and Ecosystem Modeling, 30 July-12 August, Oldenburg (Germany)
