With its internationalization efforts the Cluster strives to increase the visibility and scope of Kiel Marine Sciences. The Future Ocean Cluster is always looking for highly qualified scientists to actively participate in and contribute to Future Ocean research and education.


Support for international scientific exchange for PhDs is mainly realized through ISOS, for postdocs mainly through IMAP and the Alexander von Humboldt Future Ocean Fellowship, for senior scientists by means of support for continued collaborative research (seed money), international symposia and visiting scholar financial support.

We also support the transfer of Kiel Marine Sciences knowledge and expertise to the international scientific community, stakeholders and civil society. Our three main foci are:
