Research Explorer Ruhr 2023

To international postdocs around the world: Apply by 28 February for a spot in this year's Research Explorer Ruhr (18 June–1 July)! Join in to work out research compatibility with a professor of your choice and explore possibilities to come back for a longer postdoc stay with your own funding.

Research Explorer Ruhr is a two-week summer program for international advanced doctoral researchers and recent postdocs (< 1 year after PhD) interested in exploring the research landscape in the Ruhr area, Germany. The program is jointly offered by the universities of Bochum, Dortmund, and Duisburg-Essen (University Alliance Ruhr) under the umbrella of Research Academy Ruhr.


During a two-week stay on-site from 18 June to 1 July 2023, you will meet your host researchers, explore the labs and research facilities of our universities, and work intensively on a potential third-party funding proposal. Benefit from accompanying workshops on postdoc funding schemes and research career options in Germany. Take the opportunity to exchange ideas and network with our faculty members and early career researchers from Bochum, Dortmund, Duisburg, and Essen.

The program is conducted entirely in English. The invitation includes travel expenses and accommodation.
