SECOND NEW ANNOUNCEMENT Funded Short-Term Scientific Mission (STSM): Influence of different fertilization regimes on the quality and quantity of produce (salads, herbs) in aquaponics

Published by , 14/5/2015

Dear all,

We have a second Funded Short-Term Scientific Mission (STSM) proposal announcement for you to consider today:

Influence of different fertilization regimes on the quality and quantity of produce (salads, herbs) in aquaponics

We are looking to award a grant to a PhD student or early career postdoctoral researcher (less than 8 years since the award of the PhD) to undertake a Short-Term Scientific Mission (STSM) for ten weeks in the period of August to November 2015 in order to conduct the experimental work. In the experiment four nutrient regimes will be compared: (i) conventional hydroponic, (ii) Aquaponics (AP) with fish water, no additives, (iii/iv) AP with fish water, two versions of ‘additives’ (mineral nutrients, nutrients from fish sludge). The monitoring will include water quality, productivity of the system, and aspects of quality of plants (shelf life, biomass composition …)

The deadline for applications is the 15th July 2015.

Please see the attached proposal for further information: STSM proposal
