Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship at MedClimaLizers Lab (ENEA)

MS-C Individual Fellowship at MedClimaLizers Lab (ENEA) for international young researchers!

We are looking for a candidate with experience in organism rearing, marine aquaria, and experimental systems. Biological and ecological knowledge on benthic organisms, preferably calcifiers, is required. Since the laboratory will host Master and PhD students, as well as visiting researchers, we are looking for a candidate with good attitudes and able to work in team.

Dead line: 20 June 2015

For Expression of Interest: medclimalizers at gmail.com

The goal of MSC Individual Fellowship is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers wishing to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill acquisition at multi- or interdisciplinary level through advanced training, international and intersectoral mobility.

New paper on the effect of thermal stress on Ellisolandia elongata

In press on Marine Environmental Research

Effects of thermal stress on the growth of an intertidal population of Ellisolandia elongata (Rhodophyta) from N–W Mediterranean Sea

The first long term experiment (6 months) on Ellisolandia elongata under controlled conditions. The species revealed a potential ability to cope with seawater temperature changes expected for a future Mediterranean Sea (2100). This study highlights the importance and complexity of the organism as framework builder and Mediterranean marine biodiversity promoter.
