Excellent research marketing
With "Explore Materials Chain" (EXMAC) the UA Ruhr Universities Bochum, Dortmund and Duisburg-Essen were successful in the German Research Foundation’s (DFG) ideas competition for international research marketing.
The DFG awarded a 100,000 euros grant to the cross-university concept. The jury honors exemplary concepts that boost the visibility and draw of German research on an international level and attract highly qualified staff to join collaborations and research projects in Germany.
On May 29, 2018, Prof. Dr. Axel Schölmerich (Rector of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum), Dr. Hans Stallmann (UA Ruhr Coordinator), Dr. Marion Franke (Materials Chain Coordinator at University of Duisburg-Essen) und Dr. Christiane Wüllner (member of the RAR Board) received the award at the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in Berlin.
Forging global networks and maintaining a strong international visibility are decisive factors for a successful career in research. EXMAC will attract international expertise to the Ruhr area, thus helping the region become an outstanding science and research hub. Up to 30 junior researchers in the flagship program Materials Chain have the opportunity to recruit international postdocs via EXMAC. For the period of two weeks, the visiting researchers will be conducting joint research projects or draw up funding applications together with their hosts and network with professionals in the Ruhr knowledge region.
International postdocs can apply online by June 17, 2018.
