Ph.D. Student Position
I've been informed that it is likely that I will get funding for a Ph.D.
student in Zooplankton Taxonomy. This is based on a very quick
application to our university for one of a certain number of
stipends offered. I have
in mind a project with a combination of traditional taxonomy and
genetics, in collaboration with the Census of Marine Zooplankton
project, if possible.
There is a growing awareness about biodiversity and lately also
detailed taxonomy/species knowledge in Norway, and this is an
opportunity to "get on the train". I am open to the specific theme
and group of species that would be of interest.
