Support for PhD students

PhD students at MARUM are supervised by a team of experienced scientists to ensure best possible guidance for their dissertation project. In addition, they can benefit from a large network of fellow PhD students from all over the world and from a range of disciplines. 

Thesis Committee Meeting

The Bremen International Graduate School for Marine Sciences, GLOMAR, hosts PhD students from MARUM and its cooperating institutions who aim to obtain a doctorate at the University of Bremen. GLOMAR members study different fields in marine sciences ranging from the natural to the social sciences. The Graduate School offers a dedicated training programme with expert and skills courses that account for the diversity of fields in marine sciences, and soft skills training to complement the education of scientists at an early stage of their career. The graduate school fosters transdisciplinary exchange and collaboration across different disciplines in marine sciences.

PhD students at MARUM are fully integrated into the researcher community. PhD student representatives are part of the governance structure of MARUM and are involved in advancing the Graduate School programme. Initiatives for events organised by the PhD student community, such as seminars, workshops, annual PhD Days and similar, are highly appreciated and supported in MARUM.

Completed International Research Training Programmes


The International Research Training Group ArcTrain - 'Processes and impacts of climate change in the North Atlantic Ocean and the Canadian Arctic' was a collaboration between the Universities of Bremen (Germany) and eight Canadian partner universities from 2013 to 2022.

The European Training Network SLATE (Sub­mar­ine Land­slides and their im­pact on European con­tin­ental mar­gins) studied sub­mar­ine land­slides, in­vest­ig­at­ing how they are triggered, the as­so­ci­ated tsunami risks, and how they af­fect coastal re­gions. The project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 funding line from 2017 to 2020.

The International Research Training Group INTERCOAST – ‘Integrated Coastal Zone and Shelf-Sea Research’ was a collaboration between the Universities of Bremen (Germany) and Waikato (New Zealand) from 2009 to 2018.
