How to apply for project participation

Are you interested in participating in one of our DAI projects? The first step is to check our job portal "Job Openings" for positions that require a university degree.

Students and trainees with basic skills and knowledge looking for project participation opportunities are advised to research potential projects that match their interests and contact the excavation or project director directly. You can find all DAI projects including the contact details under "Research" ‒> "Projects". Please consider that many of our guest countries require us to submit the names of all project participants one year in advance. You plan accordingly and hand in your request/application as early as possible.

Applications for project participation should be digital and include your CV, a personal statement, and information on previous experiences with excavations. Please notice that your continuous participation may be desired in some projects.

There are numerous scientific disciplines that are not represented within DAI. We therefore cooperate with universities and universities of applied sciences. DAI research initiatives also include projects run by universities and universities of applied sciences. Our partners and/or the directors of external projects choose their own staff so you need to contact them directly if you are interested in project participation.
