Two interesting PhD positions available in the Human Impact: Pollution task of the Nansen Legacy project, one at UiO and one at UNIS.
Some of the species we work with are easiest attained before onset of winter. With summer rapidly coming to an end, Jan and I went to Drøbak this week to sample copepods and threespine sticklebacks.

Plastics are materials widely used in almost all objects of everyday life. They are not biodegradable but undergo weathering, resulting in the release of very small plastic particles called microplastics. The environmental impacts of these particles are still poorly understood and this project seeks to find out more about the harmful impacts in marine organisms.
Seabirds in Polar Regions are experiencing increasing environmental stress due to climate change and pollution. They also serve as indicator species for changes in the environment. But what do they tell us about how seabird populations are affected by contaminants and climate, and is the situation the same in Antarctica as in the Arctic?
