As a PhD student at AWI

The education and individual support of PhD students is part of the major concerns of promoting young scientists at the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI).
About 180 postgraduates from more than 30 different countries are currently part of our institute's staff. They are working towards their doctoral degree under the supervision and scientific guidance of AWI colleagues in the various research departments. Our PhD students find excellent technical and administrative facilities, and through their close involvement in numerous national as well as international research projects they significantly contribute to the institute's scientific output.
