Career Information Day 2019

Dear international PhD students and Postdocs,

We are pleased to invite you to attend our second Career Information Day for international PhDs and Postdocs to be held on November 28, 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. at the IBZ in Rostock.

This Career Information Day intends to bring awareness of available career opportunities for international PhDs and Postdocs in Germany apart from jobs at the university or nonuniversity research institutions - especially in the Rostock area - and provides an understanding of what is required to successfully enter the German job market. Different institutions who help to gain access to that market like the International Placement Services of the federal employment agency will be present, too.

There will be speakers from industry as well, e.g. human resources managers of CENTOGENE AG, SIV.AG and Neptun Ship Design GmbH, giving their tips on how to secure employment in their field of work. This will also include how to apply, what to expect in an interview and what they really look for in international candidates. You are also invited to bring your CV and maybe even hand it in directly. So, don’t miss the chance to meet professionals interested in helping you to achieve your professional goals!

  • Date: Thursday, November 28, 2019 from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m.
  • Place: Internationales Begegnungszentrum Rostock e.V. (IBZ), Bergstraße 7A, 18057 Rostock
  • Language: English
  • Participation fee: none
  • Registration: Sign up until November 21 via welcome-centeruni-rostockde (Subject: Career Information Day registration)
  • Participants: 50-70 international PhDs & Postdocs

Please be aware that the event is open for participants of all academic fields, even though the invited companies have an MINT background.

We hope to see many of you there

German Christmas Evening

Experience the magic of traditional German “Weihnachten” with us!

Dear international PhD students,
Postdocs, Visiting Scientists and
friends of our Welcome Center,

we would like to invite you to a very merry Christmas event!

Smell the scent of freshly baked biscuits, enjoy a cup of mullded red wine while your kids learn how to craft little Christmas ornaments. Feel at home in the sparkling lights of the traditional Christmas tree with typical “Lametta”, carol singing and some other surprises we’ve prepared for you – because in Germany, there can be no Christmas without a little “Heimlichkeit” (secrecy)!

Bring your children and friends with you and join in our traditional “Weihnachtsfeier” – just like we celebrate Christmas in our families. Exchanging little presents is of course a very important part of the Christmas feeling, so we’d like to invite you to bring a nicely wrapped gift (average value of 5 Euros) which will be hidden under the Christmas tree and passed out during the event.

Please send us a short reply via email whether you’d like to join our German “Weihnachten” and if you’d like to bring your partner and/or children and if you want to bring a gift.

We can’t wait to celebrate this magical season with you!
