Career in science

In order to realize the dream of researching in your own work group, you can fall back on various networks and offers of help.

German society for junior professorships

The association is a nationwide association of junior professors. Its goals are the moral and financial support of the junior professors. The association wants to be a communication platform for junior professors, support network building and information exchange and promote public relations .


EURAXESS Germany - the national coordination office at the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research) is an information and advice center with information on all aspects of careers in science. Mobile researchers: Here you can find out about ways to successfully start your academic career and, for example, receive information on further training opportunities, can see who offers support for dual career couples, which programs are specifically aimed at women and who supports projects with an industrial focus.


The communication and information system "Young Scientists" also answers questions about e.g. B. Scholarships or other funding opportunities. In addition to information on academic career paths and funding opportunities, the portal also offers advice from experts, as well as an Internet portal and an email and telephone service through which young researchers can receive individual advice and answers to their questions about Career and funding in the German research landscape.

German Academic International Network is the name of this initiative, supported by the DAAD, DFG and the AvH Foundation. The aim is to support German scientists in North America and also to help them if they return to Germany.

Research Gate

Looks a bit like Facebook and works in a similar way - but on a scientific level. Here scientists have come together to discuss topics in all possible disciplines.
