Learn About Academic Research Careers in Germany

In early December, three German research organizations are offering
information sessions in Washington, DC, San Francisco, and Los Angeles
about research and research training in Germany. The sessions, called
"Research Careers Made in Germany: Explore Opportunities in German
Academia," will include representatives of the German Research
Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG), the
German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and the Alexander von Humboldt
Foundation (AvH).

The meetings are aimed at current and prospective Ph.D. students, postdocs, and faculty. The presenters will discuss Germany’s Excellence Initiative
to promote university research and support young scientists. The
meetings will also cover the academic job market in Germany and
opportunities for international collaboration.
