Postdoctoral Researchers


At GEOMAR an average of 200 PhD scientists are working on temporary research projects.

Scientists whose doctorate was awarded within the last 6 years are in the career-building phase and are called Postdocs.

Employees, who have been working scientifically for more than 6 years since their doctorate, are addressed Senior Scientists.

All doctorate scientists on temporary contracts are represented by the Postdoc Team.

Postdocs find support for planning their career in the Postdoc Academic Career Support Center (PACT).
