Germany: Available Funding Sources / Job and Training Opportunities

Research in Germany

Information platform and contact point for Germany's research landscape and overview of the research and funding opportunities in Germany. It also delivers the latest science and research news from Germany and upcoming events. Additionally, practical information supports foreign scientists and researchers in their decision to collaborate with German research organisations or to complete a research stay in Germany.



Making it easier for degree-holding refugees to start a career in Germany while tackling a shortage of skilled workers – this is the aim of the training project "PROFI in MINT" funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and currently being launched at the University of Bayreuth. The Campus Academy for Advanced Training, the International Office, and the Office of Career Services & Corporate Relations are offering the certificate course "Technology and Management" as a pilot programme starting this winter term. Applications are welcome from refugees with an academic degree in engineering, the natural sciences, or a comparable degree in a STEM field and German proficiency at level B2. The course is free of charge for successful applicants.
