In cooperation with the German Chemical Society, the DAAD supports short-term research stays for North American and British students at German universities and research institutions in the field of chemistry. The foreign students have completed at least the second year of their undergraduate studies at an American, Canadian or British university and are supposed to support doctoral students in their experimental work as part of a 2-3 month stay in Germany.
Here you can find out how you as a doctoral candidate can apply for employment of a foreign research assistant. In addition to chemistry, the following subject areas are funded: Biology, Physics, geology, engineering and life sciences.

RISE professional

The DAAD promotes unique internship opportunities for natural science and engineering students from the USA and Canada who want to gain international practical work experience in companies in Germany.

RISE worldwide

The idea of the RISE program is also offered to students from Germany. Young, ambitious students from the natural sciences, geology and engineering have the opportunity to work with researchers all over the world who want to include German students in their working group to provide practical support for their project. The DAAD supports the research stays that take place during the summer semester break with grants to help the participants cover their living costs.
