Career prospects in Germany

"Wissenschaft im Wettbewerb" (Competition in Science) is the slogan for this year's annual meeting of young German researchers, taking place from 9 to 11 September 2005 in San Diego. About 150 young researchers who are currently working in the western United States and in Canada will find out about the latest developments in German research policy and possible career openings in Germany. Having a job fair there will give those researchers abroad an opportunity to discuss individual career prospects with potential employers from Germany. Approximately 40 grant recipients from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation), many of whom are Emmy Noether fellows, will be among the participants.

The meeting is organised by the German Scholars Organization (GSO), the DFG, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), in cooperation with other German research organisations.

In addition to the competition between Europe and the USA in science and technology, the meeting includes other key topics such as the performance of German universities and funding for top-level research. Leading figures from the research community, politics and industry will address these issues, among them Mary Kavanagh from the European Commission Delegation to the United States and Hans Coufal from IBM Research. The main focus of the talk by the President of the DFG, Ernst-Ludwig Winnacker, will be on competition between the best universities and public research funding. Peter Gaehtgens, President of the German Association of Universities and Higher Education Institutions, and Max Huber, Vice President of the DAAD, will also participate in discussions with the young researchers. The focus of this year's guest lecture is a hot topic in the international research community: Lawrence Goldstein from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute will speak on the current state of stem cell research and the situation of scientis
