The Maritime Research Institute Netherlands was founded in 1929 as the Netherlands Ship Model Basin (NSMB) by the Dutch government and industry. Work was started in 1932. Today about 370 employees work at MARIN. To efficiently manage our knowledge development and to provide industry with a complete range of activities, MARIN is organised into different Business Units. Each Business Unit has its own speciality: Offhore, Ships, Maritime Simulation and Software Group, Nautical centre MSCN, Research and Development, Trials and Monitoring.


I am part of OceaNET. OceaNET is an FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN). This network is made of 10 European partners. In total 13 Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions are offered for a period of 36 months by this network.
