‘The Future Ocean’ offers coaching to improve the capabilities of its postdoctoral scientists on their individual career track by identifying their individual strengths. Coaching can help, for example, in solving conflicts and developing strategies to maintain a healthy work-life-balance but it can also help in identifying alternative career paths.


Individual coaching is organized by the Office of Scientific Advancement at Kiel University and the coachees can remain anonymous to the Cluster if they so wish.  

A maximum of 10 coachings with up to 10 sessions per individual are offered per year.

Coaching is organized directly between the interested IMAP member and the Office of Scientific Advancement at Kiel University. Please contact Dr. Katharina Abermeth (, phone 0431 880–1255.

All IMAP members are eligible for coaching.
