Applications Invited for SCELSE Summer Course at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore
Applications are invited from graduate students and early postdoctoral trainees for the 9th Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) Summer Course from Tuesday, June 25 to Friday, July 12 at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.
The Summer Course brings together world-renowned scientists and engineers including SCELSE scientific leaders. Participants will interact with these experienced mentors in their interdisciplinary approach to learn about and harness the biology of microbial communities and biofilms in environmental, health and industrial applications. Learning outcomes include understanding mechanisms and processes using quantitative approaches. This knowledge will be used to help design experiments that can yield information for developing new technologies or solving problems in natural and engineered environments. The course brings together fields as varied as (bio-)engineering, public health and microbial ecology through the commonalities of biofilms. Notably, the course format provides ample opportunities for the participants to interact closely with the mentors in small groups and informal settings.
The course is held in the midst of NTU's rich, green campus. Graduate students and postdoctoral trainees are invited to participate in this international Summer Course. For more information, including full details about the application procedure, please visit the SCELSE website. Applications close on Friday, March 15.
