ArcTrain is a collaborative project between the University of Bremen and the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research in Germany, and a consortium of eight Canadian universities led by the Université du Québec à Montréal.
Funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), ArcTrain follows the scientific objective of advancing the understanding of variability and feedbacks in Arctic and North Atlantic oceanic and cryospheric processes. Along this central research theme, ArcTrain provides structured training to PhD students in an interdisciplinary framework of paleoclimatology, oceanography, environmental physics and climate science.
ArcTrain offers a multifaceted qualification program, including research stays at partner institutions in Canada, land- and ship-based field courses, joint annual meetings and structured training workshops.
Further details on ArcTrain research and training are available at http://www.marum.de/en/ArcTrain.html.
For the third phase of ArcTrain, the University of Bremen and the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research invite applications for 12 PhD positions.
