Hjort Summer School 2017
Bridging Methods in Marine Science:  From Lab to Models

11. – 16. August 2017
Espegrend Biological Station, Bergen, Norway
Application deadline: 1. June

The ability to integrate and communicate between laboratory experiments 
and numerical modelling is an increasingly important skill to 
collaborate and work successfully within the interdisciplinary field of 
marine science. The 2017 Hjort Summer School will train the next 
generation of marine scientists in linking and communicating across 
laboratory- and numerical modelling approaches.

Lecturers & Instructors:
Dag L. Aksnes,   University of Bergen, Norway
Hans G. Dam,     University of Connecticut, USA
Aditee Mitra,    Swanea University, UK
Diane Stoecker,  University of Maryland, USA
Camilla Svensen, University of Tromsø, Norway
Selina Våge,     University of Bergen, Norway

The Program
To achieve a better understanding of the connectivity of lab and 
modelling work,  the 2017 Hjort Summer School has a strong focus on 
hands-on work. Accompanied by lectures, students will conduct lab 
experiments and link them to modelling experiences using examples highly 
relevant to the changing marine environment of today such as mixotrophy, 
zooplankton fecal pellet production and carbon export.
Students are also asked to prepare a poster-presentation of their own 
research. Upon completion, they receive a course diploma with a 
recommended 3 ECTS.

Participants, Costs & How to apply
The course is aimed at earlier career scientists and students within the 
field of marine sciences.
All course costs (accommodation & food) are covered; however travels 
will have to be paid by the student. A limited number of travel grants 
are available (for details see application form).
To apply, please fill in the application form, upload a short CV and a 
letter from your supervisor in the Online application form
