Volunteer: Tina Silovic
Tina Silovic is an active microbiology researcher whose main research interests lie in marine microbial ecology. This stems from her PhD and postdoctoral positions at the Center for Marine Research (Croatia) and at the Institut Méditerranéen d’océanologie (France) respectively. She is currently a research associate in Croatia working on bioprospecting Adriatic algae, mainly cyanobacteria. Tina is also interested in science communication and translating scientific concepts for different audiences.
Tina leads a FEMS Opportunities Board Taskforce Project by connecting the microbiology community to microbiology jobs all over the world on the Opportunities Board.
All but one of the FEMS journals are now fully open access (OA), with one journal, FEMS Microbiology Letters remaining a subscription journal with free-to-publish and OA options. Open access is key to supporting the FEMS mission of disseminating high quality research as widely as possible: when high quality, peer reviewed sound science is open access, anyone, anywhere in the world with an internet connection, can read it.
