All About Making a Career in Research

Are you doing your doctorate and would like to know what a career in research means? Do you want to figure out if a research career is the right choice for you? The Research Career Day provides strategic knowledge and personal orientation about career perspectives, career paths and requirements for a career in research.

What does the Research Career Day offer?

The Research Carer Day fosters an early understanding of the most important career factors, career strategies and personal decisions for a career in research. The half-day event combines expert input, the exchange of experiences with Postdocs and experienced researchers, and interactive elements. It provides knowledge and experiences to enable an early career orientation for doctoral researchers interested in a research career and helps to understand what can already be important during the doctorate.

Who is invited to participate?

The Research Career Day is aimed at doctoral researchers from all research areas at Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and the University of Duisburg-Essen who would like to find out about a career in research at an early stage.

We offer this event in English to integrate all research areas and research languages.

Next Date: The next Research Career Day will take place in 2023 (date tbd.).


Details about the program will be available in good time.


Information on the registration phase will be published here in due time.
