Bremen Fireside Chats Marine and Climate Sciences

 

... a cooperation between the graduate programmes

 
GLOMAR logo

The idea of this event series...

… is to introduce a variety of different job perspectives for marine and climate scientists outside academia.

We invite people who have a background in marine and/or climate sciences in their widest sense and who are now successful working in fields other than academia. These can be people with a position in industry, but also consultants, entrepreneurs, people writing for science journals or working in science museums and similar.
The event takes place after work and outside the workplace to foster a more informal atmosphere.

Depending on their background, affiliation and position, the invited speakers are asked to give a short (30 mins max) overview about their job, the career steps they took to get this position and which qualifications (esp. transferable skills) are required for this job.

The participants get the chance to ask questions and have an informal discussion with the speaker while enjoying some nice food and drinks next to a fireside.
fireside
The term “Fireside chat” refers to an informal meeting with a relatively small group of people who gather to talk about a specific topic in a friendly atmosphere (such as, for example, next to a fireside). The term goes back to a series of thirty-one evening radio addresses given by United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt between 1933 and 1944.
