Opportunities in Germany for mathematicians from Ukraine

The German Mathematical Society (DMV) aims to support mathematicians from Ukraine at all stages in their career who might consider a visiting position, scholarship or other forms of scientific long-term stays in Germany. In cooperation with Mathematics Münster, applications from mathematicians from Ukraine and offers from German mathematical institutions will be coordinated via this website.

Mathematicians from Ukraine on all career levels are invited to send their applications via this form. We will then try to find the best mathematical and personal fit between offer and application. Please also see the list of current offers on this page. If a linked offer matches your profile, you can also send your application directly to the offering institution.

Please forward the link this website https://go.wwu.de/math-for-ukraine to those who may be interested!

Studying in Germany

The offers on this website are mainly directed at mathematical researchers. If you are a student, take a look at the website of the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service). It provides an overview of German universities which offer English Bachelor or Master programmes in mathematics.

Mathematical institutions in Germany: register as supporter!

This initiative is a long-term project of the Deutsche Mathematiker-Vereinigung (DMV, German Mathematical Society) in cooperation with Mathematics Münster. We call on all mathematical institutions and individual scientists in Germany who want to help with stipends, temporary positions, etc. to register via this form. We will coordinate the applications and offers and try to find the best mathematical and personal fit.

Let us stand together to support our colleagues from the Ukraine!

Frequently Asked Questions

When the opportunities for positions become available, what is an approximate timeframe?
We do not know yet, since we are in the very early stages of this initiative.

Which institutions would offer temporary positions?
The supporters may have various ideas on how to create positions within their institutions and possibly involve their colleagues at other universities. They need your input to act: please fill out the form.

Is Ukrainian affiliation required?
In principle yes, but mathematicians from Ukraine who are presently at another university and may have to return to Ukraine soon are also eligible.

Is Ukrainian citizenship required?

How can I find a place to live?
Upon arrival in Germany you will be referred to the nearest state-run initial reception centre, where you will be given a temporary place to sleep if necessary (see https://www.germany4ukraine.de/hilfeportal-en/where-to-stay ).
If you want to stay with private persons in Germany, take a look at the website https://unterkunft-ukraine.de/.
Also AirBnB offers accommodation for refugees from Ukraine.

Where do I find assistance concerning German bureaucracy?
The website https://www.germany4ukraine.de provides information about the registration process, medical care, labour and social affairs.

What if I am a male under 60 and am unable to leave the country?
Please register anyway, and hopefully the situation will change. In any case, we may try and lobby this issue in the future.

Where to send questions not answered above?
