Research Careers in Germany

Germany enjoys a global reputation as a world leader in research and academic training, characterised by excellent facilities, multi-disciplinary interests and a well-funded infrastructure. There are more than 800 publicly-funded research institutions in Germany, as well as research and development centres operated by private and industrial corporations. In 2013, Germany's gross domestic expenditure on research and development was in excess of 80 billion euros, ranking the country fourth in the world for research spending, above the UK, France and Canada. Internationally, Germany is also in the top tier of a small number of countries to invest more than 2.5 percent of their gross domestic product in research and development. This commitment to enterprise has led Germany to being at the forefront of research activities worldwide. Germany is particularly attractive for international doctoral students and postdocs, not least because of the use of English as a primary research language, but also the comprehensive career opportunities arising from Germany's enhanced international partnership in research.
