The Institute of Oceanology Polish Academy of Sciences (Poland) is seeking candidates for a PhD studentship on the CoastDark project, which will examine changes in the structure and functioning of pelagic ecosystems affected by water darkening due to glacier/river runoff in the fjords of European Arctic.

The project aims to quantify how the share of living plankton organisms in relation to mineral and organic particles will change along the gradient from the glacier/river discharge towards the open waters in the fjords of the western Spitsbergen.
