On behalf of the organizing committee, we are glad to announce the Euromarine Summer School “Emerging topics in coastal marine ecosystems - eTOPs” will take place from 4th to 13th July 2023 in Cadiz (Spain).

The Summer School eTOPs aims at interdisciplinary training of PhD students working in coastal marine ecosystems. This Summer School is coordinated by Euromarine Network researchers from Universidad de Cadiz (UCA, Spain), Centro de Ciencias do Mar (CCMAR, Portugal), and Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn (SZN, Italy) and will be delivered by 29 professional experts from 14 institutions.

The eTOPs Summer School will cover a broad and interdisciplinary training in a series of emerging topics in the study of coastal marine ecosystems and will include theoretical formation with practical laboratory sessions and field trips. The topics addressed include climate change, i.e. marine heatwaves and ocean acidification, global anthropogenic impacts, i.e. microplastics and emerging pollutants, and biological risks, i.e. invasive species. It will also address climate change mitigation strategies, i.e. blue carbon, technology development, i.e. unmanned vehicles, and management and conservation strategies for marine protected areas.

eTOPs will grant PhD students, mostly from the EuroMarine network. Participants will be certified through the UCA International Doctoral School in Marine Studies EIDEMAR with recognition doctoral training course credits/hours.

Information about the Summer School and application link at https://euromarinesummerschool.uca.es

Call for application is now open. Deadline for applications is 9th March 2023

 Updated on 14/11/2022

The SZN hosts International PhD programs in collaboration with the Open University (UK) and European Universities. Research students have the opportunity to develop top-level research and improve their personal skills and professional competence by living, experiencing and working in the laboratories of the SZN. A dedicated staff supports each research student and his/her needs are identified and jointly agreed upon, with the student at the beginning of the activity. All needs and progresses are regularly followed and updated as appropriate.
All SZN PhD students take advantage of our international Higher Education Program, consisting of international courses, seminars, workshops and colloquia. Over the last three years more than 40 students have completed their PhD program at the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn.

International PhD Program in collaboration with the Open University (OU)

The International PhD Programme, originally established in 1998, represents the prime commitment to first class training and education. Our International  PhD Program in Life Sciences is based on internationality, dedicated mentoring, career development, additional skills, in order to provide our  PhD students with the best starting platform for a successful career in science by inspiring and fostering talented young scientists to turn them into skilled and creative future leaders. It provides comprehensive training that promotes scientific excellence, independence and creativity. We provide close internal mentoring jointly with the tutoring of an international expert, highly specialized courses, additional skill exercises, career development. More than 95% of our students have successfully completed their PhD degree and most of our graduates have taken up positions all over the world. Every year we accept an average of 6 new students, selected from a large pool of international applicants.

OUR RESEARCH DEPARTMENTS:
Research Departments

Research activities at the SZN require the employment of a large number of PhDs and young researchers. PostDoc programs are defined on a 3-year basis and PostDocs are continuously recruited through public calls. Their work is linked either to specific research EU programs or to flagship programs of the SZN. The recruitment of PostDocs allow their further training in specific research fields and is operated either through grants or by means of Assegni di Ricerca, whose duration can vary from 1 to 5 years.

SZN INTERNATIONAL SEMINARS

Since the early nineties SZN promotes and hosts a very important series of international seminars, involving either the participation of SZN scientists (including early stage researchers) to top level scientists from all around the world, including Noble Prizes who have conducted or present their research at the SZN.

SCIENTIFIC MEETINGS, CONGRESSES AND WORKSHOPS

The SZN promotes and organizes meetings and workshops aimed to high level scientific exchanges, to support the scientific communities to meet and discuss topics with leaders in the field as well as to discuss common themes and exchange cross-disciplinary results.

ADVANCED COURSES AND SUMMER SCHOOLS

The SZN has a long tradition in the organization of Advanced Courses for the training of scientists working in public or private institutions, and Summer Schools, that include summer schools in the History of Biology and the most advanced scientific issues (e.g., Advanced Phytoplankton Course) aiming at promoting the transfer of new methods and emerging techniques to a specialized audience.
