The PhD representatives are a team of five MARUM / GLOMAR PhD students who are responsible for representing the interests and needs of the MARUM and GLOMAR PhD community and to assist PhD students in any issues they might encounter during their time as a PhD student.
Moreover, the representatives serve as an information node between the GLOMAR management board, the MARUM project leader assembly and the students.
Finally, they also organise regular social events and scientific events (i.e. the Bremen PhD Days in Marine Sciences), which foster networking between PhD students.
PhD Representatives are usually elected for the period of 12 months (GLOMAR) or 24 months (MARUM) respectively. Elections are held at the semianual PhD assemblies.
