With two Clusters of Excellence, 40 Collaborative Research Centres and Transregios, 31 Junior Research Groups and more than 40 Research Training Groups and PhD programs, the universities of Bochum, Dortmund and Duisburg-Essen offer excellent working conditions for early career researchers.

The diverse doctoral programs enable a successful start to a research career through excellent supervision, professional and interdisciplinary qualification as well as close contact to other doctoral and postdoctoral researchers at University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr).

The three UA Ruhr universities provide an environment for top-level research and support in developing a personal profile at all career stages. Numerous Junior Research Groups and research awards reflect the excellent achievements of our postdoctoral researchers.

Here you will find an overview of the doctoral programs, Junior Research Groups and Collaborative Research Centres at UA Ruhr: *

Global Young Faculty

The Global Young Faculty is an initiative of Stiftung Mercator in cooperation with the University Alliance Ruhr and is coordinated by the Mercator Research Centre Ruhr (MERCUR) in Essen.

The program brings together outstanding and dedicated early career researchers researchers from universities and non-university research institutions based in the Ruhr area. It supports them in their efforts to forge new professional contacts and share ideas beyond institutional and disciplinary borders.

Explore Materials Chain (EXMAC)

EXPLORE Materials Chain (EXMAC) enabled 30 Materials Chain Junior Professors and Junior Research Group Leaders to invite international postdocs to the three UA Ruhr Universities. Within a two-week stay, from 27 October to 14 November 2018, invitees had the opportunity to work on joint research projects, proposals or partake in excursions. The concept was developed by the flagship program Materials Chain and the Research Academy Ruhr. In 2018, EXMAC received an award in the DFG competition "International Research Marketing".
