DEVOTES-EuroMarine Summer School "Marine Ecosystem Services, Management and Governance: Linking Social and Ecological Research", Aquarium of Donostia, 6 - 9 June 2016, San Sebastián, Spain
The topic for this summer school relates to marine ecosystem services and the links between their assessment, mapping and the need for a socio-ecological framework to address the important management issues related to the governance of the oceans. Governing the oceans and keeping them in a healthy state requires activities at sea to be sustainable, so that the ecosystem services provided by the oceans and the functionality of the ecosystems can be maintained.
First Sven Lovén International Field School for Marine Ecology, 15 - 26 Aug. 2016, Sven Lovén Centre, Sweden
This summer school in marine ecology is focused on providing students the opportunity to develop their skills in experimental and observational ecology, sampling design and strategies under field and laboratory conditions. Participants will experience the scientific process of ecological field research. Observing organisms underwater and as such understand their role in a marine ecosystem is often difficult or sometimes even impossible.
The University of Gothenburg is seeking a PhD student in evolution and speciation in marine sciences at the Department of Marine Sciences. The PhD-student will work in a team studying contact zones between locally-adapted ecotypes of the coastal snail, Littorina saxatilis.
