Postdoctoral Researchers‘ Networking Tour du DAAD (25.09 – 01.10)

Bérénice Kimpe - International Cooperation

You're doing your postdoc in molecular biology and are interested in professional opportunities in Germany? In academia and industry? Let's discover them with the new DAAD programme. Application deadline is July 15.
Germany offers a broad spectrum of career options for young scientists at universities, research institutions and in industry. However, those who have never been to Germany and Germans who have been out of country for some time may not be familiar with recent developments and new opportunities.

Through its Postdoctoral Researchers’ Networking Tour the DAAD offers a new format to provide postdoctoral researchers with an insight into German science and the job market for highly qualified postdoctoral researchers.

This year’s networking tour focusses on molecular bioscience (biochemistry, biotechnology, medicine and related disciplines) and includes:
  • on-site visits to: universities, research institutes, companies
  • an insight into high level research projects in: biochemistry, biotechnology, medicine and related research areas
  • discussions with experts who have a profound understanding of the German higher education system, funding opportunities, the job market, the start-up scene, the employer perspective, application procedures
  • numerous networking opportunities with representatives of business and academia, other tour participants.

The tour language is English. The detailed planning of the tour is currently in progress and regularly updated information on the time schedule and participating institutions and speakers is available here.

What we offer:
  • a practice orientated and diverse programme to suit the requirements of the participants
  • coverage of programme related costs in Germany (accommodation, domestic travel, most meals)
  • a lump sum travel allowance if such costs are not borne by a third party. This will also be provided if the stay is extended by up to five working days in order to allow for additional professional networking.

Application deadline: July 15
