The next Sentinel North International PhD School will take place from July 2 to 12, 2019, at the Centre for Northern Studies (CEN) research station in Whapmagoostui-Kuujjuarapik (Nunavik, Canada) on the theme: Arctic Microbiomes: From Molecules and Microbes to Ecosystems and Health.
Registrations are currently open to recruit young researchers from all disciplines ready for an experiential training with world-renowned mentors in the fields of medicine, chemistry, biology and microbiology, optics-photonics and genomics.
The participants of the school will live a unique summer field and laboratory-based course experience with a multifaceted approach including lectures, case studies and hands-on experiences supervised by renowned researchers from various disciplines. It will also include an introduction to the emerging field of environmental optics/photonics as a means to improve our understanding of the northern environment and its impact on human health.
The main themes are:
- Arctic microbiomes and ecosystems
- Microbiome responses to change
- Human health and microbiomes
The call for applications is open until February 15, 2019. Applications are being accepted from graduate students (both MSc and PhD) and postdoctoral researchers.
