YES Network: Geomicrobiology Initiative
Project Leader: Punyasloke Bhadury
Over the last decade the interdisciplinary domain of Geobiology including geomicrobiology has generated plenty of interests among geologists, earth scientists and biologists. New discoveries in geomicrobiology has significantly changed the way we think about the origin and evolution of life on earth. YES Geomicrobiology is an initiative of YES Network to motivate early-career geoscientists to pursue research in geobiology and also encourage collaboration amongst geologists, geochemists microbiologists and environmental scientists. Through this platform ideas will be exchanged among YES Network members in areas of geobiology including geomicrobiology. Job openings/PhD positions/Meetings and workshops/grants applications relevant to the field of geomicrobiology will be posted on a regular basis. Opportunities for establishing long-term international research collaborative link amongst early career geoscientists will be actively explored from this platform.
