“HBS is simply a wonderful place to work at: Located on the Baltic Sea, surrounded by a fantastic landscape and nature, full of history, perfectly equipped for field and mesocosm experiments, with incredibly friendly staff that do everything to make you feel right at home and make the experiments a success.
