Hi PhD-students, Masterstudents and post-dosc, (researchers), In April and June 2015 Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research on Helgoland together with Sven Lovén Centre for Marine Sciences, University of Gothenburg at Kristineberg will give a joint training course for applicants primarily at Master, PhD-student and Post-Doc (or researchers) level in European Scientific Diving (ESD, see the attached announcement).
The first part will be conducted on Helgoland in April and the second part in June at Kristineberg. We will finish before midsummer. This joint program is a unique opportunity to train scientific diving skills and techniques together with other young scientists and to create an international scientific network of researchers working under water. The course is to a large extent funded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, wherefore we can reduced the course fee, significantly. The ESD standards is recognized in both Sweden, Germany and many countries in Europe to work with Scientific Diving.

If you have some problems with the entry requirements for the course, or have some other questions do not hesitate to contact the organizers firstname.lastname@example.org or Philipp.Fischer@awi.de and we can help you out.
