Info Seminar: Funding possibilities for the postdoctoral phase 11 & 12 November 2020

We cordially invite you to the information event of the International Office and the Department 6.1 - Research Promotion and Cooperation on November 11, 2020. The seminar is aimed at international doctoral candidates who are about to complete their doctorate and at postdocs who received their doctorate not more than two years ago. The aim of the event is to inform about funding opportunities of the EU, DFG, DAAD, etc. for postdoctoral research stays abroad as well as for the own position in Germany. The event will be held in English and - unlike originally planned - online due to the current developments of the past days.

The second part of the event will take place online as well on November 12, 2020. The aim of this seminar is to help participants learn how to adequately prepare their own successful applications for scholarships, travel grants and research funding (both in Germany and beyond).
