Research Opportunies Week

This week-long event gives 50 international postdocs the opportunity to find out more about TUM and potentially secure a 24-month research fellowship.

The Technical University of Munich regularly invites young researchers from all over the world to the five-day Research Opportunities Week to inform them about opportunities for postdocs. During this week, participants have the opportunity to interact with TUM professors and researchers and learn more about the career system and funding opportunities in Germany.

ROW 2023 offers 50 international young scientists the opportunity to get to know TUM and its research environment. The program includes visits to research institutions at TUM, networking events with TUM professors, and information sessions on funding opportunities for postdocs in Germany.

Travel expenses and accommodation are covered.
