Young Investigator Appreciation Day!

With this event we once a year want to:

  • welcome the Athene Young Investigators (AYI), newly appointed to the AYI-Programme of TU Darmstadt,
  • offer you a platform to establish networks with other young investigators and postdocs of different research disciplines of TU Darmstadt, Goethe University Frankfurt and Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and,
  • provide you with essential, first-hand information on academic career paths and on becoming a university professor given by our invited guests: two full professors of TU Darmstadt.

Who can participate?

The event is open for all established researchers (R3) and postdoctoral researchers (R2) of all research disciplines of the Rhine-Main Universities being interested in an academic career.

When will the event take place?

Presumably, next Young Investigator Appreciation Day will take place in June or July 2024. TU graduate organisation Ingenium will provide information at an early stage via various channels.
