Theses offer

Topics of possible theses: Ecology of glacier microorganisms

Cryoconites are water filled cylindrical melt-holes on glacier ice surfaces that are inhabited by microorganisms and small grazing animals (rotifers and tardigrades). We want to know how do the cryoconites and communities within develop over the melting season, where do they get their energy from and how do the different trophic levels interact with each other.

Work on this topic will contain field work in Svalbard and laboratory work in Czechia. More info HERE.
