Welcome Evening for International Doctoral Researchers

Welcome Evening for International Doctoral Researchers

Within their "Meet & Greet" programme for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers, GradUS and the International Office will organize an informal Welcome Evening on 28th October 2014 in order to bring young researchers from all countries and disciplines together. We would like to welcome particularly, but not only, the newcomers in Saarbrücken to join the event.

Programme of the event:

  • Useful information concerning the support of our institutions and one's orientation in the scientific and social environment at Saarland University

  • Funding opportunities for doctoral researchers from GradUS and the new "GradUS global" project (DAAD)

  • Opportunity for open exchange between young researchers

  • Joint visit of the movie "Moonrise Kingdom" shown in English language by UNIFILM (entrance fees will be covered by us)

  • Get Together after the movie in the bar of student hostel E on the campus or in a restaurant

The working language of the event will be English.

  • For each PhD student, participation in the GradUS workshops is sponsored with 50 € per semester by the presidium of Saarland University, which are considered when calculating course fees.

  • Participation in every workshop is certificated. Towards the end of your PhD, you can also get a GradUS certificate for all GradUS workshops that you took part in.

  • Childcare can be provided for doctoral researchers with children for the duration of a particular GradUS event at no charge (see website "Kinderbetreuung").

  • Deduction from income taxes: We recommend trying to deduct the fees for the GradUS workshops from the German income taxes that you might have to pay (costs for advanced training measures).
