Welcome to yDiv – the Young Biodiversity Research Training Group
yDiv is a graduate programme for young biodiversity researchers from across the world. The interdisciplinary character of iDiv is a challenge that yDiv transfers into an opportunity for doctoral researchers by offering the chance for professional and personal development.
At yDiv, doctoral researchers can approach biodiversity science beyond their specialization. yDiv inspires them to use different approaches for their research (from theory and fundamental science to applied aspects of nature conservation and policy), different investigation objects (single organisms, manipulated communities, ecosystems) and different methodologies (modelling, field experiments, molecular ecology).
