The Helmholtz School for Marine Data Science (MarDATA) is recruiting
candidates for doctoral studies (PhD) 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

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 modelling, (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.
