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

ywa logoThe Young Wadden Academy (YWA) is currently made up of five young researchers who have proven track records in science and are interested in research in general and in the Wadden Region in particular. One of the YWA’s main concerns is to encourage multidisciplinary research on the Wadden Region using system analysis. The YWA is seeking two new members. See the job offer on Academic Transfer.
