Alumni service for researchers

More and more international researchers are coming to work or to do their research at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena. Have you completed your research stay in Jena and are about to pursue your academic career worldwide? Do you still feel connected to your former host on a personal or professional level? Our Welcome Point would like to invite you, as a former visiting scientist or scholar, into a global alumni network for researchers. We would be glad to inform you about our services, activities, projects or job vacancies, and thus to stay in contact with you after your research stay in Jena. In addition, you may act as an ambassador and encourage the early-career researchers to carry out a research stay at our university, too.

  • Offers for international research alumni


    • Our Welcome Point supports you before and during your first and further stays at the University.

    • University's ambassador at your home institution
