The GMOS-Train is an international research project, coordinated by Prof. Milena Horvat from the Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI) and is financed under the funding line “excellent science” of the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme of the European Commission.
The overall objectives of the GMOS-Train network are:
- to provide urgently needed training in Hg science within the context of the UNEP Minamata Convention, and
- to fill key knowledge gaps in biogeochemical Hg cycling linking anthropogenic emissions and Hg in marine food webs.
ESRs will be trained through a structured and comprehensive programme and will not only learn the theory but will gain first-hand lab experience. The partners engaged in the project will work closely together, with each of the partners supervising at least one research project. All ESRs will spend time not only at the hosting institution but also in one of the other partner universities/research centers/regulatory agencies/companies involved in GMOS Train project throughout Europe. Being trained in highly relevant research topics will enhance researchers career prospective and employability. The GMOS-Train aims to recruit outstanding and highly motivated ESRs to meet the ambitious goals of the project.
