The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD)
Postdoctoral Researchers International Mobility Experience – PRIME 2019/20
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) initiated the PRIME programme to support the international mobility of postdoctoral researchers by temporary positions at German universities in place of conventional stipends. Postdoctoral researchers of all nationalities, who see their long-term career perspectives in Germany, will be given the opportunity to combine temporary employment at a German university with a research stay abroad.
