Karema – Kaiserslautern Research Matching

What is the project karema about?

The central aim is to boost research careers of highly qualified international young researchers by working on a postdoctoral research project in the internationally renowned research centers of Kaiserslautern (especially Technische Universität Kaiserslautern and High Performance Center Simulation- and Software- based Innovation).

Therefore, the project karema initiates a Principal Investigator-Postdoc matching by bringing together top-class researchers from Kaiserslautern and highly qualified international young researchers (Postdocs).

The key step towards creating your postdoctoral research project within karema consists of a short on-site stay in Kaiserslautern (the “karema Days”). During the karema Days, you will meet with a first-rate researchers in a match-making workshop, have an individual research counseling with him/her in order to develop research projects in collaboration with the renowned scientists. The aim is for the visiting researchers to subsequently apply for post-doctoral positions in Kaiserslautern.

International Postdocs may apply for the karema Days that will take place

from 2nd to 10th December 2017 in Kaiserslautern

Application Deadline: 31st July 2017
