We invite all PhD-students and young professionals for the 2019 edition of the NCK Summer School! The bi-annual NCK Summer School covers a range of physical and ecological topics in the coastal area. These topics are linked to the Dutch Wadden Sea area and its surroundings, i.e. including the barrier islands and the North Sea. The NCK Summer School includes a series of lectures, elaborating case studies in small groups, field measurements and field trips, as well as a more informal programme in the evening. The NCK Summer School will be held from June 17th until 28th 2019 at the island of Texel, the Netherlands. For more information, visit the PAO website

DuneForceDear NCK Colleagues,

We are starting a new project that aims to develop DUNEs FOR Coastal safEty and habitat development (DuneForce!). The DuneForce project will be initiated this year at Delft University of Technology in collaboration with Wageningen University and Research in the Netherlands. The project will run for 4 years.

I would like to point out some exciting career opportunities for Post-doc and PhD’s. See https://aa.academictransfer.com/search_results/?q=duneforce for more information.

Please feel free to spread this message in your network and/or contact me personally if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Sierd de Vries (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
