Meet UiBs first group of SEAS fellows
The SEAS postdoctoral programme - Shaping European Research Leaders for Marine Sustainability - invites you to an open day October 7. Are you interested in what the SEAS Programme is? Or in research on marine sustainability? Come and listen to our first group of SEAS fellows introduce themselves and their research.
This year we welcomed the first of our postdoctoral fellows. Come and hear from them as they present themselves and their projects!
Everyone is welcome! The event will be at the University Museum, Natural History Building, Museeplassen 3, use the Main entrance (front door).
Each fellow will give a short overview of their background and proposed research. Coffee breaks will allow time for mingling and asking questions.
