PhD position available in Marine Evolutionary Ecology

Closing date: 2016-04-10

The PhD-student will work primarily with field and laboratory experiments on the brown seaweed Fucus vesiculosus in order to investigate adaptive evolution of traits related to biotic (primarily herbivory) and abiotic environmental difference in various habitats.

Meta-analysis in Biology and Environmental Sciences

This year we will give a course in Meta-analysis in Biology and Environmental Sciences at Tjärnö 21-26 August 2016.

Meta-analysis provides a widely implemented, cross-diciplinary framework for quantifying, pooling and evaluating results of different studies on the same topic. Although the course aims at using these statistical tools within biology and environmental sciences, students/researchers within other research fields may also find it useful.

The Centre for Marine Chemical Ecology brings together researchers in biology, chemistry and biohydrodynamics to collaborate and improve the understanding of chemically mediated interactions between marine organisms and their environment.

Focus is on production and response to bioactive compounds used in chemical defense.

From 1 January 2016 the Centre for Marine Chemical Ecology is a part of the Centre for Sea and Society at the University of Gothenburg.
