Advanced biology training course: Integrative Biology and Adaptation of Antarctic Marine Organisms

Location: Antarctica
Event Type: Training Course
Event Date: 2006-01-04    
End Date: 2006-02-04

Event Description:
This National Science Foundation sponsored course will be held in Antarctica at the United States' McMurdo Station for one month, starting January 2006. This is an international course, open to all nationalities.

Applications are invited from graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and other research scientists who are interested in the study of extreme environments and the biology of Antarctic organisms. The course will accommodate up to 20 students. Full scholarships are available to each student accepted into the course to cover the cost of travel from home institution to Antarctica, and room and board while in Antarctica. The emphasis of the Antarctic Biology Course is on integrative biology, with laboratory- and field-based projects focused on adaptations in an extreme polar environment. A diverse teaching faculty will offer students the possibility of working on a wide range of Antarctic organisms (bacteria, algae, invertebrates, and fish), as well as working at several different levels of biological analysis
(molecular biology, physiological ecology, species diversity, and evolution).

Deadline for receipt of completed applications is September 1, 2005. For more information and
on-line applications, please see --
