One of the main objectives of MARUM is to train early career researchers to take on the diverse challenges of top-level research, including cross-disciplinary collaborations and science communication to a broader public.

The MARUM graduate school GLOMAR serves as a central platform for interdisciplinary training for doctoral students in marine sciences at the University of Bremen and its partner institutions. GLOMAR follows a threefold strategy to prepare young marine scientists for their future career:

  1. Educating the students to become excellent young scientists in their respective fields,
  2. Providing them with an interdisciplinary foundation and an international network, and
  3. Giving them the opportunity to improve their transferable skills
