Oportunidad para Prácticas Profesionales

The South American Research Group on Coastal Ecosystems was established to assess marine diversity and biomass along both coasts of South America through an international collaboration. The main goals of SARCE are to:

•Test hypotheses about latitudinal gradients and patterns of local and regional biodiversity
•Identify the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning
•Assess the effect of environmental gradients and anthropogenic stressors

About SARCE Internships

SARCE is also committed to education, therefore, one of the goals is to implement a capacity building program that will allow the exchange of students between the SARCE countries so that they can participate in the field trips in different localities with different environmental conditions and biodiversity, and benefit from the experience of the local research team.

The internships will provide funds for students to attend and actively participate in the SARCE 2013 field campaigns while they acquire knowledge and experience on a different ecosystem (e.g. temperate vs. tropical, Pacific vs. Atlantic).
