One PhD position on “Extended One Health Approach and Coastal Pathogens” at the Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3)


closed

The Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) in collaboration with PIE-UPV/EHU offers a 4-year PhD research fellowship.

The PhD position is part of the Horizon Europe research project BlueAdapt, on coastal pathogens and climate change.

The project aims to provide an evidence base for innovation and action around coastal pathogens, by bringing together an interdisciplinary team of biologists, climate scientists, economists, epidemiologists and public health experts to investigate and quantify the future health risks associated with selected coastal pathogens, and identify adaptation measures through concrete case studies. BlueAdapt will also provide tools to assess the impacts of policy responses and communicate the results to a wide audience, including both policymakers and the public.

 

Now more than ever the importance of keeping in mind the human–animal–ecosystem interface when assessing the evolution and emergence of public health threats is clear. BC3 will work towards the development of an “extended One Health” approach, to help wider engagement in the complex nature of the issue, and illustrating in a local case study how this approach can be used to generate action and knowledge co-production.
