The rapid spread of COVID-19 has a huge impact on Germany as well as the entire world. We are currently faced with the most unlikely situation not to be able to act as host to thousands of international students and researchers. Universities and all educational institutions in Germany remain in reduced operation and use virtual formats to comply with the current rules of social distancing.
We fully endorse the current travel restrictions put in place in Germany and around the globe. However, we remain a welcoming destination for talented students and researchers from around the world. If you intend to apply for research positions, please make sure to get in touch with the respecitve institution to inquire about the current situation.
A great number of researchers at German higher education and research institutions work around the clock to develop treatments and vaccines against the virus. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) plays a major part in this by making innovative coronavirus-related research a priority.
