Promoting of young talent

We would like to inspire young people for our topics and thus arouse and promote their interest in taking the path of a natural scientist.

We offer internships for school pupils, starting with a first-hand look at the everyday work of coastal researchers. Students can complete internships for their diploma, bachelor's or master's degree. We also support our doctoral students and accompany them on the way to a successful doctorate. Available places for doctoral students are advertised in the current job opportunities.

In addition, we offer so-called summer schools for young scientists in cooperation with other institutions. These give young scientists the opportunity to consolidate their knowledge, learn new aspects and gain practical experience.
