The Bremen International graduate School for Marine Sciences (GLOMAR) aims to educate excellent young scientists who are able to tackle the challenges in a changing world and thereby advance the field of marine sciences. GLOMAR encompasses natural sciences as well as social and legal sciences. The graduate school is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) under the Excellence Initiative by the German federal and state governments to promote science and research at German universities.
GLOMAR provides a research training programme, including team supervision, a clearly structured curriculum, an advanced course programme, international exchange, and experience in project acquisition and management.
The main objective of the graduate school is to provide an optimal environment for PhD student training and to foster excellence in education and research with a clear focus on marine sciences. GLOMAR follows a threefold strategy in order to prepare young marine scientists for their future career: (i) to train them to become excellent scientists in their respective fields, (ii) to provide them with a broad interdisciplinary background, and (iii) to give them the opportunity to learn the transferable skills necessary for a career in academia, industry, consulting, or administration.
The graduate school GLOMAR offers an educational training programme consisting of different types of courses (i.e. introductory and expert courses as well as training of transferable skills), which are open to all interested PhD students.
In general, all PhD students at the University of Bremen with a topic in marine sciences can become a member of GLOMAR.
