This is an interdisciplinary summer school and we welcome applications from students and early-career researchers (up to 10 years post PhD) in natural and social sciences who are interested in modelling and interpreting change in global oceans. Participants with interests in topics including for example, oceanography, biogeochemistry, fisheries, climate change and social and economic aspects of marine ecosystems are encouraged to apply. If you are interested in finding out about practical ways of dealing with the challenges arising from working across social and natural science disciplines, and communicating with decision makers, then you should apply to participate in the ClimEco5 summer school!
Download and complete the application form from the link below and send it with a short CV (in English, two pages max.) and a reference letter from your supervisor or employer, to Lisa Maddison at the IMBER International Project Office (Lisa.Maddison@imr.no) before 31 March 2016.
A team of multidisciplinary experts from the natural and social sciences will share their perspectives and approaches to marine science. These include:
