Cross-university support for early career researchers

Research Academy Ruhr (RAR) is the joint platform of Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and the University of Duisburg-Essen for promoting early career researchers on their career paths in academia and beyond. Our services are directed at the around 10,000 young researchers who are engaged in the University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr):


Vom 12. bis 16.10.2020 findet am KWI wieder eine digitale Schreibwoche statt: Promovierende der UA Ruhr in den Geistes-, Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften können an ihren Texten arbeiten und erhalten Input von Wissenschaftler*innen des KWI.

There are many options for a career in research even outside the university: At the Karriereforum on 1 October 2020, experts will provide insights into how to apply for professorships at universities of applied sciences, how to enter the business world, and career paths in non-university research institutions.
