Research in Germany: Opportunities for Postdocs, Young Investigators, and Junior Faculty Members in Germany (English)

Mittwoch, der 25. August

12:00-1:00 pm EDT



At the heart of Europe, Germany is one of the best destinations for cutting-edge scientific research. Why not consider a research stay or career in Germany starting your independent research group at one of Germany’s leading universities or research institutions, or engage in research cooperation with Germany? We invite international doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers, as well as junior faculty members to join this event to learn about funding opportunities and special programs to foster independent research careers in Germany. All disciplines are welcome! The workshop is conducted in English and hosted by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH), the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and the German Research Foundation (DFG). German researchers are encouraged to attend another concurrent session.
