Gain practical experience

Would you like to get a taste of practical biology by participating in fieldwork or at the lab? Would you like to know how biologists work and at the same time do networking? Are you curious on what kind of working skills that are needed within the discipline? Then take a look at our available projects and join in on a 40 hour internship. Interested? You will find the contact information within the project descriptions.

UNISprout – a student lead project

UNISprout is a student led bioCEED initiative and are run by the UNIS student representatives in bioCEED. Inspired by the bioSPIRE, a similar program running at the University of Bergen, the goal of UNISprout is to give bachelor students relevant practical training. Participating bachelor students spend up to 40 hours assisting master students, PhD students, technicians or professors with their research. The bachelor students receive training and valuable experience doing real research and the supervisors benefit from having careful and curious lab or field assistants.

Using autonomous remote technology and in-situ sampling to study spatial and temporal shifts in Arctic fjord biodiversity caused by climate changes

Climate change in Arctic coastal systems leads to declining sea-ice and sea-terminating glaciers, and these changes are expected to modify biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in the littoral fjord areas in Svalbard. In addition, influx of Atlantic water and invasive species, which may compete with and displace Arctic species, may change community composition and spatial distribution.… Read more →

Setup of a warming and moss removal experiment monitoring effect of vegetation on active layer depth

In high-arctic tundra, vegetation is facing severe challenges due to climate-change-induced warming, shifts in seasonality and potentially increased herbivore pressure. We expect shifts in vegetation from moss-dominated to vascular plant-dominated communities, as well as species shifts within these groups. While mosses are a major component of high Arctic vegetation that is subject to climate-induced change,… Read more →
