The Gordon Research Seminar on Marine Molecular Ecology is a unique opportunity for early-career scientists (mostly graduate students and postdocs) to present their cutting-edge research, whilst gaining mentorship from leaders in the field.
During this meeting we will dive into the molecular networks of marine life at all levels, from viruses to fish. In the marine environment, molecular processes drive broad ecological dynamics from system level functions (nutrient cycling, ecosystem stability) to individual organisms (response to climate change, ocean acidification, invasive species, ecotoxicology, virus-host systems, holobiont). This meeting will focus on both the molecular interactions between organisms and with the environment.
The seminar will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS, either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.
The seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 13, 2019. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Information section above.
Gordon Research Seminars are 2-day meetings which take place on the Saturday and Sunday just prior to the start of the associated GRC. The GRS opens with a 1-hour introductory session on Saturday afternoon, followed by a poster session, dinner and a 2-hour session in the evening. Sunday morning begins with breakfast and is followed by another 2-hour session, a second poster session, and lunch. A final 1-hour session takes place just after lunch, and the associated GRC begins later that evening.
