RUB Research School

What is the impact to go abroad during my Postdoc?

Share experiences with Alumni of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation

Are you planning a research stay abroad during your Postdoc? Are you juggling a lot of different questions to plan and realise this stay?

RUB Research School together with the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Humboldtianer e.V. invite all doctoral researchers and Postdocs of RUB. Use the unique opportunity to meet 16 Alumni of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation who have spent research stays abroad at renowned research institutions in 11 countries. They share their personal experiences and knowledge of the impact being abroad as a Postdoc.

27.10.2023 | 12:00 – 13:30 h | Veranstaltungszentrum RUB, Saal 1 

The meeting starts with an informal networking session, which gives the opportunity to get in personal contact with individual AvH Alumni. Talk about experiences in different countries and cultures and chat about personal motivations, personal decisions, and career paths. Explore what it means to enter the research system but also to live in the different countries – abroad or in Germany. You can also exchange about the impact of research stays abroad for your further and longer-term careers – in and outside academia.

Additionally, you have the chance to explore with experts from the AvH funding lines and opportunities.

In the following panel discussion, the Alumni of the AvH share their experiences about important career strategy questions, different career systems, funding opportunities and questions regarding strategic planning of an application. We are very much looking forward to all the interesting and important questions you will bring.

Register HERE by 24 October 2023.

You are also most welcome to join the “Jahrestagung of the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Humboldtianer e.V.” on the topic “Panta Rei” in the afternoon of 27.10.2023 at the same place.
