The DAAD Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE) give students in the fields of biology, chemistry, engineering, geology, and physics the chance to spend a summer working with German doctoral students on substantive research projects. The doctoral students help integrate the undergraduates directly into the lab work and serve as personal and professional mentors. All participants receive stipends from DAAD to help cover living expenses, and the partner universities and research institutions provide housing assistance. To apply for a RISE placement, you must be currently enrolled at a U.S. or Canadian university/college as a full-time student in the field of biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, or engineering (or a closely related field). German language skills are not required for most positions but would be helpful to manage everyday life outside of the laboratory. The working language will generally be English. The application deadline is in late January. For more information, please e-mail rise@daad.de.
