Program Overview

Program Description:
The International Max Planck Research School of Marine Microbiology (MarMic) is an M.Sc. / Ph.D. graduate program for highly qualified and motivated national and international students. MarMic teaches students to take an interdisciplinary approach to the understanding of marine prokaryotic and eukaryotic microbiology, offering training in physiology, ecology, evolution, molecular biology, bioinformatics, and other related subjects.

Marine microorganisms are essential to the maintenance of our biosphere, yet we have only fragmentary understanding of the diversity and function of the microbial life in our oceans. The study of marine microbiology involves research of fundamental issues such as the evolution of life, the functioning of marine food webs, global climate change, the fate of pollutants, and the biodiversity of the ocean.

Setting Description:
MarMic offers a 4 year program with the first year consisting of theoretical and practical training with lectures, tutorials, practical courses, laboratory rotations, and seminars. After the first year, the majority of MarMic students enters the Ph.D. program and graduates with a Ph.D. thesis within 3 years. A Master's of Science (M.Sc.) degree is available to those students that do not qualify for the Ph.D. program, or for Ph.D. students that wish to gain a M.Sc. degree. The school language is English.
