NEW CALL FOR PHD STUDENTS 2018

More information on the available fellowhips and the related research topics can be found here







The PhD course in "Environmental Life Sciences" is jointly offered by the Universities of Trieste and University of Udine. It covers a wide range of scientific issues related to environmental life researches ongoing at the two universities, whose main focuses are:

  • Ecology and ecophysiology of marine, fresh water, terrestrial and agricultural ecosystems;
  • Global change biology and management of natural and agricultural ecosystems;
  • Biodiversity informatics, genetics and conservation;
  • Ecotoxicology and bioremediation.

The possible field works for the PhD students span over a large array of ecosystems from the deep sea in Antarctica to high mountains passing through plains and rivers.

PhD students will find a dynamic and multidisciplinary environment that will promote both basic (e.g. marine protistan metagenomics, plant/environment interactions) and applied research(e.g. green technologies, ecological engineering and environmental biomonitoring).
