PhD course in Aquatic Microbial and Molecular Ecology 2018

Dear Colleague,

We offer again this year our successful PhD course in Aquatic Microbial and Molecular Ecology during the last 2 weeks of August 2018 (19-31 August). The course has – with continuous updates - been running every year since 1996 by Erik Kristensen et al. From this year an onwards I have taken over the coordination and  the course will only be running every second year. The focus of the course will still include theory as well as state-of-the-art methods used in ecological, biogeochemical and molecular studies of aquatic sediments.

You can find more information about the course in the attached file. A full course plan will be available at the website from March 01 at: For now we just want you to mark the dates and confirm that the course will be running.

The course will be taught at the Odense campus at University of Southern Denmark and the teaching team includes Bo Thamdrup, Don E Canfield, Alexander Treusch and Ronnie N Glud.

The course will target 24 students and the application form is included with this mail and will soon be available at the website. There is no strict application deadline, but we will appreciate receiving applications before 15 May, 2018.

Please do not hesitate contacting me if you have any additional questions.

We are looking forward to host your students at SDU in August.
