Graduate Research School in Genomic Ecology
Recent developments of high-throughput tools for genome studies have paved the way for identification of genes and mechanisms underlying ecological interactions and adaptations to the environments. This rapidly expanding field will in the near future require a generation of well-trained specialists.
The graduate research school in Genomic Ecology (GENECO):
- provides a platform for the training of PhD students engaged in this field at the crossroad of evolutionary ecology, population genetics, molecular biology and genomics, at Lund University.
- forges links between molecular biologists at the cutting edge of genomics research, ecologists who aim to understand the ecological and genetic mechanisms that underlie the processes of evolution, and theoreticians who seek coherent concepts and models to explain interactions between genes, individuals, populations and the environment in complex adaptive systems.
- provides a doctoral education at the highest international scientific standard that will prepare students for a career both within and outside Academia.
Application is open to students who are already enrolled as PhD students at Nordic universities. Next opening for new applications is planned for the fall of 2013.
