The recruitment of qualified personnel and the qualification of their employees is a central concern of the member institutions of the U Bremen Research Alliance. For this purpose, the members of the alliance develop joint personnel development strategies, offer dual career-opportunities and support scientists and their families in planning and implementing their stay in Bremen and Bremerhaven. Our job portal provides an up-to-date overview of all job vacancies in the member institutions.
Better networked – joining one, joining all
Interdisciplinary and international. Independent, but not alone. Supported by a strong network of top-level institutions. The U Bremen Research Alliance stands for the close cooperation between an excellent research university and a large number of non-university research institutions. We offer excellent infrastructure and creative competence in providing solutions. We work in flat hierarchies with short communiction channels, nurturing an interdisciplinary culture that offers maximum freedom of scope.
With us you will find the best conditions for researching freely, creatively and cooperatively.
The subject of personnel development is one of the lead projects of the U Bremen Research Alliance. The development of coordinated personnel development strategies focuses on both young scientists and science-supporting staff. Therefor, the cooperative use of existing funding offers is promoted and joint appearances at career fairs are organised. The Alliance is characterized by structures that are used across the board, the creation of its own formats and the mutual opening of existing offers.
The members of the U Bremen Research Alliance cooperate closely in the area of promoting young scientists and doctoral projects. Many of the scientific employees of the non-university partners in the U Bremen Research Alliance do their doctorates in the departments of the University of Bremen. The offers of the support center for early-career researchers at the University of Bremen (BYRD) are open to them.
In addition, the institutions cooperate within the framework of the following doctoral programs and graduate schools:
International Max Planck Research School for Marine Microbiology MarMic
The International Research School for Marine Microbiology works in cooperation with the U Bremen Research Alliance partners Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology, University of Bremen and Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Center for Polar and Marine Research, as well as the Jacobs University Bremen. The institute offers a joint master's and doctoral program in marine microbiology. To the website.
Helmholtz Graduate School for Polar and Marine Research POLMAR
At the Graduate School for Polar and Marine Research (POLMAR), young scientists are researching polar marine ecosystems and climate change. Within the framework of the Graduate School located at the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Center for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), the U Bremen Research Alliance partners AWI, the University of Bremen, the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology as well as the Jacobs University Bremen and the University of Oldenburg are cooperating.

Leibniz Graduate School SUTAS
With an interdisciplinary perspective, the Graduate School SUTAS (Sustainable Use of Tropical Aquatic Systems) is focusing on socio-ecological issues in tropical coastal regions. The Graduate School is supported by the U Bremen Research Alliance partners University of Bremen, Leibniz Institute for Prevention Research and Epidemiology - BIPS GmbH and Leibniz Center for Marine Tropical Research. The spectrum of research disciplines, which are represented in SUTAS, is multidisciplinary according to the complex questions. It ranges from marine ecology, fish biology, microbiology and sedimentology to social sciences and epidemiology. In groups, graduates from different disciplines work together in a target region, enabling interdisciplinary work and a broad understanding of the tropical coastal systems. To the website.
Graduate School "System Design"
The Graduate Program "System Design" (SyDe) is a cooperation between the U Bremen Research Alliance Partners University of Bremen, German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence Bremen and DLR Institute of Space Systems. The overall research topic is the design of complex electronic systems. The Graduate Program is funded by the University of Bremen's future concept. To the website.
