Recently, the Earth-Life Science Institute (ELSI) launched an integrated 5-year Masters-PhD course in Earth-Life Sciences. The course aims to train the next generation of students to contribute to astrobiology and related fields, and the next round of IGP(C) applications for international students to enter the program in September 2023 will open soon
Click here to go to the course’s website and learn more about it.
So that students can understand the application process and meet the ELSI faculty they may work with in the future, they will organize two webinars and Q&A sessions on January 26th (JST).
If you find fungi amazing and would like to do your PhD in astromycology, researching and exploiting fungi for space exploration, then join the Chinese State Key Laboratory of Lunar and Planetary Sciences (SKLPlanets) at the Macau University of Science and Technology (MUST), Macau SAR (China).
The applicant for this opportunity will look into how microgravity can affect fungal development and by-products. If you want to know more, please contact Marta Filipa Simões (📧).
