Phd position – Helmholtz School for Marine Data Science

Find out more about this new Ph.D. position for data scientists in marine science and submit your application before May 15th, 2019.

The Helmholtz School for Marine Data Science (MarDATA) is recruiting candidates for doctoral
studies (Ph.D.) at Germany’s leading institutes for marine research, GEOMAR, and AWI, together
with their partner universities in Kiel and Bremen.

We are looking for excellent graduates holding master degrees in computer science (“Informatik” in German), software architecture, data engineering, data analytics, advanced statistics, machine learning, numerical and applied mathematics, bioinformatics or electrical engineering/technical cybernetics.

The position

MarDATA, a graduate school financed by the Helmholtz Association, will define and educate a
new type of “marine data scientists” by introducing and embedding researchers from data science
into ocean sciences – from supercomputing and modeling, (bio)informatics, robotics, to statistics
and big data methodologies. Researchers from the German leading institutes for marine research,
the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and the Alfred-Wegener-Institute (AWI)
Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research will jointly educate and supervise doctoral
candidates together with information & data science specialists from their partner universities in
Kiel (Kiel University) and Bremen (Universität Bremen and Jacobs University).
The broad education in joint block courses, international summer schools and colloquia will go
beyond a single discipline towards genuine scientific insight into and a more systematic treatment
of marine data.
