The Helmholtz Graduate School POLMAR is based on a network connecting the AWI with the University of Bremen, University of Oldenburg, Jacobs University, and the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology. The partners already cooperate in the Bremen International Graduate School for Marine Sciences (GLOMAR), International Max Planck Research School of Marine Microbiology (MarMic), Graduate School Science, Medicine and Technology (OLTECH), and the recently completed programme of the Helmholtz Research School on Earth System Sciences (ESSReS).
Together with the AWI, the cooperating institutions provide educational and research-related opportunities and facilities for doctoral studies within POLMAR, and care for the necessary interactions of all participants. Doctoral studies are embedded in ongoing research projects under the supervision of scientists from the cooperating institutions. In close collaboration the partners involved in POLMAR will help to interlink the subject matters of individual doctoral theses and will encourage synergetic efforts between the Ph.D. students.
POLMAR is open to associating with additional universities, research centres or networks regardless of their location, provided this is beneficial for functioning or impact. If you – as an institution and/or project – are interested in a cooperation, please contact the Spokesman of POLMAR (Prof. Dr. Jelle Bijma).
