13 PhD scholarships in the marine field

INTERCOAST offers a well-structured curriculum with a broad research training programme. Besides becoming experts in their special field the PhD students will acquire a solid background across many disciplines of marine sciences. As INTERCOAST PhD students will visit the University of Waikato for approximately one third of their 3-year-term giving them the possibility to work on an international level with leading scientists.
Operating in close collaboration with the University of Waikato (New Zealand) and the Senckenberg Institute in Wilhelmshaven (Germany), INTERCOAST offers

  • Phd fields:

    Process based analysis and modelling of beach morphodynamics (IC1)
    Regional ocean-atmosphere-sediment modeling (IC2)
    Anthropogenic impact through the last millennium (IC3)
    Geotechnical characterization of marine sediments, use and hazard implications (IC4)
    Trends of habitat patchiness in acoustic seafloor classification data (IC5)
    Habitat dynamics in response to constructional impacts: a biological approach (IC6)
    Range expansion mechanisms in invasive seaweeds (IC7)
    Magnetic minerals as markers of coastal zone evolution (IC8)
    Initiation of motion: lab experiments, field measurements, numerical modelling (IC9)
    The role of environmental conditions on sediment physics: a CPT approach (IC10)
    Environmental compensation and adaptive management in marine zones (IC11)
    Legal aspects of protecting high value coastal areas (IC12)
    Flood risk management and adaptation to climate change (IC13)
