One-on-one consultations with German university representatives

The one-on-one meetings for potential PhD students and Postdocs offer you the chance to sit down with representatives of German universities and discuss the opportunities they can offer you.

This matchmaking event is an unique opportunity to find out why Germany is one of the world’s leading destinations for researchers in the science and technology sectors, and how you can be a part of it.

The registration for this event is free of charge. After you have registered you will receive an e-mail with the log-in link to your profile. You should then complete your profile with information on your academic career so far. The more information you enter the better the university representatives will get to know you.
