The Postdoctoral Networking Tour in Artificial Intelligence is part of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Twice a year they select a group of outstanding international postdoctoral researchers to visit the German hotspots in artificial intelligence. The visits cover a wide range of research fields and applications. They provide our guests both with a general overview of the German Science System and a deeper insight into the current research as well as the funding and career opportunities in specific research areas in German academia and industry.
Applicants should have:
- an outstanding scientific track record with a focus on artificial intelligence and machine learning (preferably connected to one of the research areas of the host institutions);
- obtained a PhD/doctorate before the tour but no longer than 5 years ago (exceptions can only be made if justified by outstanding achievements);
- not been living in Germany or affiliated with a German institution within the previous 12 months;
- drive, determination and a willingness to play a role in shaping the future.
- coverage of all programme-related costs in Germany (accommodation, domestic travel, most meals);
- a lump sum travel allowance if such costs are not covered by a third party;
- the opportunity to combine the tour participation with additional networking activities in Germany - and guidance in identifying relevant contacts.
More information on the programme, including the tour programme and application form, can be found on the website.
