IMBER ClimEco Summer School 2016: Applications open

Date: December 22, 2015

Every two years, IMBER organizes an interdisciplinary summer school, known as the ClimECO (Climate and Ecosystem) series.  These intensive training workshops offer students and early career scientists lectures by internationally renowned experts as well as hands-on practical sessions.

The 2016 summer school is wrapped around the topic “Towards more resilient oceans: Predicting and projecting future changes in the ocean and their impacts on human societies”. Participants will study the effects of natural and anthropogenic pressures on oceans and marine ecosystems. Modelling social-ecological systems will help to understand and project potential impacts for the future.

Students and early-career researchers (up to 10 years post PhD) in natural and social sciences are welcome to apply. Participants should have an interest in modelling and interpreting change in global oceans, as well as in topics like oceanography, biogeochemistry, fisheries, climate change and social and economic aspects of marine ecosystems.

Application deadline is 31 March 2016. Applicants are invited to send the application form, a short CV and a reference letter to the IMBER International Project Office. More information can be found here.
