The Helmholtz Graduate School for Polar and Marine Research (POLMAR) is a joint initiative between the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) and its cooperating partners. Admission to POLMAR is coordinated by the AWI.
Cooperating Institutions are:
In general, all PhD students at the Alfred Wegener Institute can actively participate in the Graduate School regardless of the type of funding they obtained (basic or third-party). POLMAR scholarship recipients (internal PhD students) are required to participate. The graduate programme is also open for PhD students from the networking universities and non-university institutions, provided their fields of specialization fits one or more fields of research addressed in POLMAR.
The Helmholtz Graduate School POLMAR provides a coherent framework for a well structured postgraduate programme at the Alfred Wegener Institute.
The graduate school POLMAR offers an educational training programme consisting of different types of courses, which are in general open to all interested PhD students.
POLMAR is established as a transdisciplinary umbrella organization to combine high level science qualification in the various disciplines of polar and marine research with other key qualifications through joint seminars, lectures and practical training. Together with the cooperating institutions we qualify a new generation of internationally competitive young scientists in the field of marine research with a focus on high latitude marine ecosystems and polar climate change. PhD students will be prepared for taking over leading positions in research, management and policy, technology development, or consulting and education.
POLMAR provides an excellent research infrastructure and a supportive environment for PhD students towards their doctor's degree. The graduate school will support candidates in the development of a strong personal career profile and to establish a strong network of young researchers in order to enhance the scientific output at the PhD level. Integration in internationally high-rated research groups will give you a broad experience in research to develop and improve your own skills. Opportunities of participation in expeditions on board the various research vessels or at research stations are only one of the options within POLMAR.
