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:
- Educating the students to become excellent young scientists in their respective fields,
- Providing them with an interdisciplinary foundation and an international network, and
- Giving them the opportunity to improve their transferable skills
English is the primary language for all communication and classes.
Key features of GLOMAR:
- Excellent research environment at MARUM and its partner institutions
- Team supervision through a thesis committee
- Interdisciplinary and structured PhD programme in English
- Monthly research seminars
- Funding for conferences and research stays, or placements in industry
- Intensive support for international students
- Support for PhD students with children
