Taking place on board the Canadian research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen deployed in Baffin Bay and the Fjords of Baffin Island, Nunavut (Canada), the Sentinel North International PhD School is a unique opportunity to participate in an ocean research program focusing on the links between light, marine ecosystem services and health in the North.
Participants will experience an exceptional transdisciplinary training, in close interaction with top scientists, in an highly technological environment.
Bringing together a wide range of disciplines such as optics, physical and biological oceanography, biochemistry and remote sensing, the school will focus on the following themes:
- The fundamental role of light in marine ecosystems
- The potential of light for the study of the changing Arctic
- Light-driven processes and Arctic marine ecosystem services
The deadline to apply is 28 January, 2018.
