Graduate school in marine environmental research

The multidisciplinary graduate school in environmental marine research is organised by Gothenburg Centre for Marine Research. The graduate school consists of seven paired projects, each including two PhD students and two supervisors from two separate faculties. Read more about the projects here.

Graduate school visions

  • To foster a new generation of young scientists with experience in working in a multidisciplinary research environment
  • To link competences from two different disciplines (different faculties) into a common research project in which added-value is gained from synergies between the different competences 

Spinn-off efftects from graduate school projects

Anna Godhe, Dept of Biological and Environmental Science and Per Knutsson, School of Global Studies, have received funding from VR for a project that will examine the impact of climate change on Indian coastal communities. This interdisciplinary project has its background from their common graduate school project, and will run for 3 years in collaboration with research colleagues from Bangalore. 

Lena Gipperth, Dept of Law and Per Moksnes, Dept of Biological and Environmental Science have received funding for the interdisciplinary research project ZORRO (Zostera Restoration). This interdisciplinary project has its background from their common graduate school project. The project consists of marine ecologists, environmental legal scholars, and environmental economists from the University of Gothenburg, in cooperation with the Country Administrative Board of Västra Götaland län, and the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water management. 

Joakim Larsson, Dept of Infectious Diseases and Hans Blanck, Dept of Biological and Environmental Science have received funding for the Strong Research Environment INTERACT - The interaction of metals and biocides with the selection of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The interdisciplinary project has its background from their common graduate school project, and is funded by FORMAS 2012-2016 with 25 MSEK. INTERACT is led by Joakim Larsson in collaboration with professors Dan Andersson (UU), Hans Blanck (GU) and Mats Tysklind (UmU). 

14 PhD student positions within the graduate school

The graduate school consist of 14 research students, working in 7 pair-projects. Two students and two (or more) supervisors within each paired project collaborate to the extent that at least one multidisciplinary (co-authored) manuscript or conference paper is provided.
