Research Explorer Ruhr (RER) is a two-week summer programme for international doctoral researchers, who have submitted their doctoral thesis, and early postdoctoral researchers interested in exploring the research landscape of the University Alliance Ruhr with its three members Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and the University of Duisburg-Essen.
If you are thinking of doing a postdoc at one of the three universities of the University Alliance Ruhr, but are not sure if it is the right fit for you, Research Explorer Ruhr is the right programme. We offer a scholarship to visit us for two weeks in June 2020 to explore an institute that fits your research profile.
The participating professors offer to host one guest at their institute from 14 to 27 June 2020. During this time, you can work out cooperation opportunities, research compatibility and possibilities to work on a funding proposal for a longer postdoc stay. You will also benefit from workshops on postdoc funding schemes and research career options in Germany. A series of networking events and guided excursions will help you becoming acquainted with the thriving Ruhr Area as a potential place to work and live.
You will find the profiles of all participating professors at: https://www.research-academy-ruhr.de/rer.html. The deadline for applications ends on 1 March 2020.
