German universities and research institutions at the 15th European Career Fair

Over 35 German universities, research institutions and funding agencies will come together to present themselves at the upcoming European Career Fair in Boston.

The European Career Fair, one of the largest transatlantic career fairs in the U.S., will take place at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from January 22 to 24, 2011. Now in its 15th year, the annual event matches candidates from America’s leading universities with the top echelon of employers from Europe.

On Sunday, January 23, the German exhibitors will hold an informative and dynamic workshop, titled "New Initiatives – More Opportunities," at the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge.

This features two interactive sessions for (under)graduate and postdoctoral students.

Session 1 will focus on “Pursuing Graduate Studies in Germany”, while Session 2 will explore “Opportunities for Postdocs, Young Investigators and Junior Faculty in Germany”.

The event is open to anyone interested in studying and researching in Germany. The workshops will be conducted in English. The event is free, but registration is required.

Candidates who wish to participate are asked to register in advance at

We invite all interested students, researchers and journalists to the German booths on Saturday, January 22 (9 am – 5 pm), and the information session on Sunday, January 23 (9 am – 12:30 pm).
