Arctic Course 2017


The course Arctic Ecology – live interactions in the midst of ice is aimed at MSc students in ecology affiliated with a university within the NordPlus network. To make real use of the course, we expect that you have attended at least basic courses in population and community ecology, and are familiar with the general features of the Arctic. Note that in selecting the students, we will aim for equal representation of Nordic countries.

Before applying, please familiarize yourself with the exciting course syllabus [link to programme page] and with the Zackenberg station including the ZERO Site Manual. Do note that this is a remote region – so to join, you should be comfortable with working under harsh, isolated conditions.

Applications were solicited by Friday, March 3, 2017. Registration is now closed.

We will select the students and get back to you during March.
