UCSC-MHIRT Germany offers training opportunities with the Conservation Genetics Group at the Senckenberg Research Institute and Natural History Museum Frankfurt, in Gelnhausen, Germany. This program is co-coordinated by Drs. Michelle Wainstein and Violeta Muñoz-Fuentes. Specific placements depend on applicant academic interests and background, mentor availability and funding cycles.
The goal of the Conservation Genetics Group is to make modern molecular techniques available to applied conservation and wildlife management. Their work combines aspects of basic research, monitoring and species conservation, leading to mutual benefits for science and society. The laboratory is involved in diverse projects on endangered European wildlife such as wildcats, wolves, bears, beavers, and saiga antelopes.
This a new program for UCSC-MHIRT and fellows must have a flexible attitude and be willing to help develop this novel partnership.
