THE CORPORATION CENTER OF EXCELLENCE IN MARINE SCIENCES – CEMarin
EXTEND THE CALL No. 3 OF 2015
TO BECOME A CEMarin EARLY STAGE RESEARCHER
CEMarin is a mixed and non-profit Corporation, founded by Colombian universities (Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Universidad de los Andes, Universidad de Bogotá Jorge Tadeo Lozano, Universidad del Valle, and Universidad de Antioquia) and by the Justus-Liebig University in Giessen, Germany, to perform basic and applied research in Marine Sciences. Its purpose is to address current problems in this field of knowledge, which cannot be solved by isolated individuals or institutions, collectively. This initiative has been driven by the mentioned Colombian universities and its researchers, by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs and by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD according to its German acronym), and has made possible the scientific cooperation between researchers from the two countries.
However, since we are convinced that to encourage the growing of the scientific community, its strengthening and its contribution to social development, it is necessary to link graduate students interested in the marine sciences to our network of researchers, we have created the CEMarin Early Stage Researcher (ESR) category. We intend that by becoming official members of CEMarin, graduate students can share their ideas, concerns and projects with other students and recognized researchers from different areas, learning from their experience and knowledge and, also, we offer them the possibility of participating in the calls of the Corporation, through which they can access scholarships and resources to attend courses that provide them with inputs for their research.
