Joining the ISOS

Doctoral Candidates in any discipline of marine sciences in Kiel can take part in our PhD programme.

In addition to your PhD advisor you choose at least one co-advisor. Your primary advisor has to be a person with the faculty permission to advise doctoral candidates. Co-advisors may come from the university or from outside (e.g. NGOs, governmental agencies etc.). It can be anyone with a scientific background who is able to contribute to your project. By applying to participate in the ISOS programme, you and your advisors enter a supervision agreement that requires two advisory committee meetings per year.

Please note:

  • There are different structures at Kiel University which you may face during your PhD studies - do not get confused and find more information here.
  • The Integrated School of Ocean Sciences does not offer PhD scholarships or positions. If you are interested in doing a PhD in marine sciences in Kiel, you will need to find a position with a senior scientist. A list of senior scientists can be found under "Cluster - Members".
    Here you can find open PhD positions.
