Research groups from all over the world that are interested in hosting a German research assistant in the from June – October 2021 are invited to submit project offers to RISE worldwide from 1 September – 15 October 2020.

In this program research groups, laboratories and doctoral students can apply to host a motivated and well-qualified student from Germany. The German research assistant will assist in research and lab work for the proposed project. The students have academic training in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, engineering, computer science, medicine or a closely related field and will receive a DAAD scholarship to help cover living expenses and travel costs.

Researchers in science and engineering profit both professionally and personally: They receive assistance with their research projects, strengthen their ties to Germany, and extend their knowledge of the German culture, research landscape and higher education system. PhD students are especially encouraged to participate because they in particular can benefit by learning how to be a mentor to younger students. RISE worldwide offers an excellent opportunity to establish academic partnerships with universities in Germany or to intensify already existing transatlantic networks.

German undergraduate students in science and engineering are exposed to advanced research work while gaining desirable practical experience in their respective fields during the summer. They get the chance to develop intercultural competence and improve their language skills. Moreover, the intensive lab work and leisure time spent together with mentors, colleagues and other research assistants may establish long-lasting friendships.
