About GENECO

GENECO is open to all PhD students at Nordic Universities that do research within Genomic Ecology. More than 130 PhD students, from seven different universities, have been enrolled in GENECO since we started in 2008. The research topics of the enrolled PhD students range from ecological and evolutionary studies with limited molecular techniques to in depth genomic approaches in cellular pathways. The GENECO PhD students study a wide range of organisms, from bacteria and phytoplankton to fish and birds, and use a wide range of high throughput sequencing techniques and analyses.

As a GENECO PhD student, you are expected attain the following skills:

  • Understanding genomic techniques and their research applications

  • Ability to design genomic research projects

  • Critical evaluation of research projects

  • Ability to communicate research ideas

  • Leadership and project management skills

  • Creativity and the ability to formulate project vision/concepts


We were recently awarded renewed funding from the Faculty of Science at Lund University and we are very pleased that GENECO will now run until 2022!

Applications to join GENECO are now open (apply here; closing date: January 20th, 2017).
