Le Centre Leibniz pour la recherche marine tropicale (ZMT) offre deux bourses de doctorat à partir de l'automne 2021. En outre, deux autres bourses de doctorat peuvent être accordées à partir de 2022.

Les bourses seront accordées par le DAAD et sont financées par le Graduate School Scholarship Programme (GSSP). Le ZMT effectuera une présélection et désignera les candidats retenus par le DAAD. Avec la demande suivante, vous vous inscrivez au processus de présélection par ZMT.

Les bourses sont liées au thème de recherche interdisciplinaire "Adaptation des systèmes socio-écologiques marins à des environnements changeants". Les écosystèmes le long des côtes densément peuplées de la ceinture tropicale sont particulièrement touchés par de graves changements environnementaux mondiaux, régionaux et locaux. Les possibilités et les conséquences de l'adaptation des systèmes biologiques et sociaux à ces changements progressifs doivent être étudiées par le biais de différentes approches de recherche mutuellement complémentaires. Ce thème est ouvert à différentes approches disciplinaires et à la coopération interdisciplinaire.

L'Académie ZMT coordonne un programme de doctorat structuré basé sur le règlement des études de doctorat de ZMT. L'université qui délivre le diplôme de doctorat dépend du directeur de thèse et du sujet. Les boursiers sont basés au ZMT de Brême et seront pleinement intégrés à l'institut et au programme de doctorat du ZMT.

The doctoral projects of the scholarship holders are based on one of the following ZMT departments and one working group. The working group leader acts as main scientific supervisors.

Biogeochemistry und Geology

Ecology

Theoretical Ecology and Modeling

Social Sciences.
