“Research in Germany” brings together German universities and research institutions interested in recruiting international PhD students and researchers. We know from experience that organising a research stay abroad can be complicated. That is why we provide an extensive range of information to graduates and researchers who are thinking about spending some time researching in a foreign country.

At the virtual fair you can visit multiple booths, each representing a German university or research institution. In addition to testimonials and branding videos, each booth offers a wide array of information on doctoral positions and research openings, programmes and study opportunities. Aside from that, you can also talk to recruiters and scientists from all of the exhibiting higher education institutions via one-on-one online chats.

The German exhibitors will offer detailed information about PhD and post-doctoral positions, research funding, PhD programmes, research groups and junior professorships in all scientific disciplines.

The event is open to anyone interested in researching in Germany. It is free of charge and will be conducted in English.
