Personal problems between supervisors and PhD students (or in other combination) might occur from time to time. For such cases an ombudsperson is available to moderate discussions among the people involved.
The Ombudsperson will listen to a student's concerns and provide confidential advice, when appropriate, which may include referring students to existing resources.
The current GLOMAR ombudsperson is Prof. Dr. Karin Gottschall
