Updated Map of the Spanish Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS)

The map of the Spanish Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures has been recently updated. They are currently 29 infrastructures. The Doñana Biological Reserve (ICTS-RBD) takes part of this map since its creation in 2007. This map is reviewed every four years, when all ICTS must present their results (scientific impact) and strategic plan (2021-2024).

The term Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS) refers to facilities, resources or services necessary for the development of cutting-edge research of the highest quality, as well as for knowledge transmission, exchange and preservation, technology transfer and innovation promotion. They are unique or exceptional in their kind, with very high investment, maintenance and operating costs, and whose importance and strategic nature justifies their availability to the entire R&D&I community. ICTS have three fundamental characteristics: they are publicly owned infrastructures, they are unique and they are open to competitive access.

EpiDiverse: contrato PhD

The Marie Sk?odowska-Curie European Training Network Epidiverse - Epigenetic Diversity in Ecology is offering 15 vacancies for PhD position at its partner institutes located in The Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain, Czech Republic, Italy and Austria.

The RP10 project aims to evaluate the role of DNA methylation in plant responses to herbivory and will be developed within the Plant-Animal Interactions group at Estación Biológica de Doñana (EBD-CSIC). We are seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic plant biologist with a Master of Science in Ecology, Plant Science or related fields, and background in plant-herbivore interactions, molecular biology and/or (epi)genetics.

If you are interested in developing your research under the challenges of combining knowledge and practices from several of those disciplines and are eager for transnational mobility please visit www.epidiverse.eu for eligibility criteria and further details. Deadline for applications is 24th November 2017.
