Research Explorer Ruhr
Research Explorer Ruhr (RER) is a two-week summer program 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 University of Duisburg-Essen.
Join in and explore research opportunities at our most excellent chairs and institutes. 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.
The program is conducted entirely in English and the invitation includes travel expenses and accommodation.
The next Research Explorer Ruhr will take place from 14 to 27 June 2020. The call will open at the beginning of 2020 and hence the new hosts will be put online.
