Guest scientist programme

We grant scholarship to overseas guest scientists. These guests should contribute to the content of our "Mankind & the Sea" exhibition and research programme.

In the context of our internationalisation strategy, we have established a guest scientist programme. Every year, we grant one to two fellowships for scientists from other countries.  These guests should contribute to the content of our "Mankind & the Sea" exhibition and research programme. The term and amount of the scholarship depends on the task structure and educational level of the applicants. Applications can be made at any time. For more information, please contact the fellowship coordinator Dr. Sven Bergmann.

The guest scientist programme has been running since 2016
