Congrats to Dr. Tobias!
Arctic SIZE PhD student Tobias Vonnahme successfully defended his PhD thesis on the diversity and ecology of microbial communities in Arctic landfast ice. As is common in the Norwegian system, he first gave an undergraduate level lecture on a related topic chosen by the external evaluation committee, followed by his PhD thesis talk and a subsequent discussion with two external opponents, Prof. McMinn from Univ. of Tasmania and Prof. Rysgaard from Aahus University in Denmark. We congratulate Dr. Tobias for a job well done!! And Arctic SIZE’s very best wishes for the transition into well-earned and deserved post-PhD life!
