Beyond the Iron Curtain

How do different resources shape ocean productivity?

Beyond the Iron Curtain

The BYONIC project is concerned with the cycling of micronutrients in the ocean and how resource availability shapes the biological activity in the sea. BYONIC is supported by a five year European Research Council consolidator grant to PI Alessandro Tagliabue at the University of Liverpool (United Kingdom) and runs from June 2017 to June 2022.


I am presently hiring people to work on the different aspects of BYONIC, if you are interested then please get in touch via:


Outside of the formal process, I am always interested to hear from ambitious and creative scientists interested in working on the cycling of micronutrients and their impacts on phytoplankton!
