About

History

Since its foundation in year 2002, the International Max Planck Research School of Marine Microbiology (MarMic) successfully graduated around 100 students. So far 97% of the Master students finished the M.Sc. programme, of which more than 90% entered our Ph.D. programme. Therefore MarMic is an excellent stepping stone for first-class junior scientists.

Education

The MarMic concept is unique: we are educating a new generation of marine scientists, and providing them with the tools to better understand microbial life and the matter in which it affects our biosphere. MarMic students are trained to think globally and to choose from both holistic and reductionistic research approaches. The breadth of theoretical and practical experiences at MarMic enables students to address questions ranging from biogeochemistry to genomic analysis, from single-cell interactions to behavior in mixed communities. These abilities make MarMic students attractive scientists for international research teams, institutes, universities, and industry.
