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
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
