“How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.
ARTHUR C. CLARKE
A Bit About The Team
I have established the Marine Symbiomes Research Group at the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn – National Institute of Marine Biology, Ecology and Biotechnology in 2017.
We are a hard working group of dynamic personalities doing fun science in a relaxed environment. We are persuaded that every person, regardless of age, career title or experience can contribute greatly to our common research goals. We further adhere to the notion that science has no borders, and thus we work to establish collaborations with investigators from institutions in Europe and elsewhere.
I am always looking for motivated students or postdocs to join the group. However, funding is limited. Please stay tuned here and on the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn website for any job posting. Potential candidates are encouraged to contact me prior to submitting their application. Also, I will be happy to work with you if you want to write and apply for your own grant.
Meet The People

I’ve been researching invertebrates for some time, now as part of the INBREATH project, with invertebrate-bacterial associations and the role of their microbiome in nutrient cycling. I also like science communication and I’m always ready for coffee and movies.
Grazia Marina Quero
I am interested in understanding how prokaryotic communities are shaped by the environment in marine and lagoon ecosystems, and their ecological and biogeochemical role from the coast to the deep-sea. Also, I am deeply in love with good music, good food and good friends.
