Call for participation in the research marketing appearance of DGM and "Research in Germany" at the TMS Annual Meeting in San Diego in March 2023

Would you like to help make the subject of materials science and materials engineering and the corresponding German research better known abroad? Then join us in promoting Germany as a research location at one of the best-known international conferences in the field and support the work of the DGM in cooperation with the "Research in Germany" initiative on site.

From 19 - 23 March 2023, international researchers and engineers from the fields of metals and materials will meet in San Diego, California, at the TMS conference. For the event, we are looking for one or two students or doctoral candidates (m/f/d) enrolled in MatWerk who will help represent Germany as a research location at the joint DGM and "Research in Germany" booth and provide cross-media support for the event. 

Specifically, this will involve you commenting on and documenting the appearance with texts, social media posts and ideally video recordings for the DGM. You will conduct interviews with selected people on site and prepare them for the social media channels of DGM and "Research in Germany". You will be the contact person for international scientists at the trade fair stand, using your institution as an example to describe how research works in Germany and what is possible here. You will also be accompanied by the media in your role as contact person for the German research location for "Research in Germany". And after the event, you are prepared to continue your commitment to Germany as a research location.

Ideally, you should be a DGM member and be studying or doing your doctorate in the field of MatWerk at a public university, college or research institution that is representative of Germany as a research location. You have experience with social media, and writing generally understandable texts as well as capturing and reproducing scientific content in German and English comes easily to you. You like to approach people, act as part of a team and also want to make a lasting contribution to international research marketing in your field.

Your travel expenses to the USA with flights and accommodation and the congress ticket will be covered. Details about the travel arrangements will be provided after your successful application. You will also benefit professionally from the DGM cooperation network afterwards.
