Doctoral Research Topics in Marine Sciences

Are you looking for a doctoral research topic in marine sciences? In the brochure  Doctoral Research Topics in Marine Sciences you find several doctoral research topics that we hope will attract and inspire you to do a doctorate in marine sciences in Kiel. This list is by no means exhaustive, but gives you a flavour of the diversity of research groups and topics you could work on. Please note that these topics do not include funding of a doctoral position.

The topics are offered by scientists from Kiel University and GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel.


MD stipends at CRC 877 "Proteolysis as a Regulatory Event in Pathophysiology"



In frame of the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 877 Proteolysis as a Regulatory Event in Pathophysiology the Integrated Research Training Group Proteases and Pathophysiology offers 10 MD stipends per year. Prerequisite is the participation in the research of one of the scientific projects of the CRC 877.  

Go to announcement

The general aim of the CRC 877 is to obtain a profound understanding of proteolytic processes in cellular regulation and signaling and to define the involvement of such processes in human pathophysiology. Its goal is to define the molecular mechanisms regulating the proteolytic steps in signaling cascades and to understand the conceptional difference between proteolytic steps and other fast and reversible signaling events such as phosphorylation and methylation. This understanding will not only help to define pathophysiologic situations mediated by cytokines and growth factors but also to define points of intervention for the development of novel therapeutic principles.
