ClimBEco PhD courses

The ClimBEco graduate research school offers a number of PhD courses and workshops each year. Some are in-depth disciplinary while others are interdisciplinary.

Generally, ClimBEco PhD courses consist of one intensive study week. The courses are free of charge and open to all PhD students that meet the admission requirements, but priority will be given to PhD students enrolled in the ClimBEco programme. Potential costs for travel and accommodation in connection to participating in ClimBEco courses can be covered for the PhD students who are enrolled and actively attending the ClimBEco programme.

Here is a document with the instruction on how to book travel and accommodation:

ClimBEco PhD courses, Autumn 2023

Risk, uncertainty and decision making

2-3 October 2023 (on site) and 6-7 November 2023 (online), Lund University (7.5 ECTS)

The aim of the course is to give the participants a deeper understanding of theoretical perspectives and methods within risk research in different disciplines, as well as tools for interdisciplinary risk research. The course contains both lectures and seminars. The lectures will provide rich accounts of different disciplinary perspectives.

Global elemental cycles and environmental change

9-13 October 2023, Lund University (3 ECTS)

The primary purpose of the course is to provide students with an advanced understanding of biogeochemical cycles, their drivers and global change in ecosystems. Detailed knowledge of specific elemental cycles with the transformations and movement of chemical substances will be taught in an integrated perspective. In addition, the emphasis will be on coupling biogeochemical cycles of different elements, the role of microbial drivers and the course will stress the multi-disciplinary nature of environmental change.

Landscape and seascape genomics

30 October - 4 November 2023, University of Gothenburg (2.5 ECTS)

This course aims at detailed understanding and hands-on experience of using landscape genomic approaches for one’s own biological research questions. You will be presented for and trained in landscape genomic concepts and methods showing how genomic data combined with spatially resolved environmental data can be applied to address and answer research questions related to management and conservation.

Interdisciplinarity in environmental research

13-17 November 2023, Lund University (3 ECTS)

This course gives an introduction in how interdisciplinary environmental research can be conducted. As a research area, environmental science is based on the notion that complex environmental problems typically demand an interdisciplinary approach to be holistically understood and potentially solved. In this context, interdisciplinarity denotes both collaborative efforts between scientific disciplines and between scientists and a variety of societal actors. During the course we will revise why interdisciplinary research across these dimensions is needed and how it can be pursued.

Science communication and role in society

20-24 November 2023, Lund University (3 ECTS)

This course gives knowledge and understanding how effective science communication works and discusses the role of science in society. Through seminars, discussion groups, self-directed learning and project work, the course provides skills to condense and convey key messages clearly, to define target audiences for different types of communication and develops effective techniques to deliver and receive information through different channels. There will be preparatory tasks the week before the course begins and you will work full days during the course period.

Courses at the Bolin Climate Research School, Stockholm University

PhD students currently enrolled in the ClimBEco graduate research school are eligible to attend courses offered by our collaborator, the Climate Research School of the Bolin Centre for Climate Research.

Please contact ClimBEco's coordinator, Cheryl Sjöström, before applying to a course at the Bolin Centre.
