Tower over others? Easy for giraffes and also for the members of GIRAF, an association of PhD candidates and young PhDs in the human and social sciences that formed their network in 2002 known as Groupe Interdisciplinaire de Recherche Allemagne France (Interdisciplinary Group of Research in Germany and France).

Their website offers a wealth of information on joint PhDs and mobility grants. You will also appreciate its useful links to networks of young researchers and Franco-German institutions working with mobile PhD students and young PhDs between Germany and France.

Note, too, that in the GIRAF directory you will find PhD resumes as well as some thesis abstracts. That should help you become familiar with the German CV layout (see Docteurs&Co n°9).
