Gradschool ESSReS

The educational programme of the Research School is composed of three years training with special courses focussing on the common research field Earth System Sciences

ESSReS is a joint initiave of  Alfred Wegener Institute Bremerhaven (AWI), University of Bremen (Uni-HB), and Jacobs University Bremen. New generations of outstanding junior scientists have been trained and prepared in the interdisciplinary field of Earth System Sciences toward a doctoral degree.

The existing research infrastructure at the Alfred Wegener Institute Bremerhaven (AWI), University of Bremen, Institute for Environmental Physics (Uni-HB/IUP), and Jacobs University Bremen offers a unique research environment to study past, present and future changes of the climate system.

ESSReS focusses on the integration of observations, palaeoclimate data, and climate modelling to better understand natural climate variations over a broad range of timescales and disciplines. The overall expertise available in observation, modelling, and reconstruction at the participating institutions provides an extremely solid base for interdisciplinary research. This excellent working and scientific environment provides PhD students with advanced training and research support. The Research School offers world-class educational possibilities thanks to its staff of internationally reknown and highly rated expert scientists.
