EMBRC ERIC Advanced Training Course: Marine Invertebrate Live Imaging Course (Blended format: May – August 2024)

We are pleased to inform you that the call for applications for the EMBRC ERIC Advanced Training Course: Marine Invertebrate Live Imaging Course is now available.

The aim of the course is to provide key background knowledge on how to work with live marine invertebrates and hands-on experience on how to perform imaging studies using live marine invertebrates.  The course will be delivered in a blended format, i.e., there will be a mandatory online (remote) phase consisting of theoretical background information about the biology of the marine invertebrates, microscopy theory and image analysis techniques (including the use of freeware) as well as assessments. The online component needs to be successfully completed before the on-site (hands-on) phase of the course. The onsite component will consist of 2 main parts. The first part of the onsite course will provide hands on experience on how to get started working with a number of marine invertebrates (eg. jellyfish, sea urchins, ascidian, salps). During the course the participant will learn how to collect and fertilize gametes and to understand and recognize the different developmental stages of the different marine invertebrates. During part 2 of the onsite course the participants will be split into small groups to perform more in-depth imaging studies of their chosen marine invertebrate.

The (mandatory) online phase of the course (~ 20 – 30 hours workload, self-paced) will take place in May-June 2024, whilst the onsite phase of the course will take place in Villefranche sur mer, France (IMEV) between 26 – 30 August 2024.

For detailed information about the course including on how to apply please check https://www.marinetraining.org/node/5878.

The deadline for applications is 24th March 2024.

This course is funded by the EMBRC ERIC and is jointly organized by EMBRC France (Sorbonne University, Université Côte d’Azur) and EMBRC Belgium (Ghent University – Marine Training Unit).


Kind regards
