Teaching, Education & Outreach


Lectures and exercises for students at the University of Bremen, FB01, Physics and Electrical Engineering are part of our team's tasks. We take part in the education and formation of early career scientists through contributions to undergraduate curricula, international summer and winter schools, programming courses and the supervision of research projects.


Talented students of physics, geosciences, Earth system and computer sciences can be offered the possibility to conduct their doctoral studies, diploma, master and bachelor theses here in our group.
