Basic Knowledge and Skills in Marine Sciences
The chart below gives an overview over what marine science supervisors at the University of Bremen defined as basic knowledge and skills PhD students should have when they start a PhD project at MARUM or in GLOMAR respectively.
At the beginning of their PhD projects, PhD students have diverse backgrounds since they have completed different Bachelor and Master programmes. To account for this diversity and to give all PhD students the chance to fill their potential knowledge gaps, GLOMAR offers courses and trainings in different categories.
The chart should be used when preparing the thesis committee meetings. PhD students and supervisors/advisors are suggested to discuss what kind of training might be needed. Since needs may change throughout the PhD project, the research training programme should be discussed in every thesis committee meeting.
