Global Young Faculty Event
Be part of it 

Discuss the impact of international research experience on your academic career with your peers and experienced researchers

Research Academy Ruhr invites all postdoctoral and advanced doctoral researchers from our three UA Ruhr universities. It makes no difference whether you are permanently employed, hold a fellowship, are a guest on a flying visit, come from Germany or the rest of the world. 

Use this unique opportunity to meet experienced researchers who will be sharing their personal experiences and knowledge of the impact of going abroad. Get connected with your peers and broaden your network.

What exactly can I expect?

The event starts with an interactive welcome note by the two moderators Dr. Christiane Wüllner and Dr. Jörn Benzinger. 

UA Ruhr Professor and ERC Synergy award winner Dr. Alexander Probst of the Research Center One Health Ruhr presents the keynote speech on Making International Experience a Career Strategy. Learn from his example how to boost your career by becoming internationally visible. 
Afterwards, Prof. Dr. Marie Hennecke (RUB, Psychology), Assistant Prof. Vahid Farrahi, Ph.D (TUDo, Sports Science), and Dr. Fatemeh Mamashli (RUB, Medicine) will join Alexander for a panel discussion. Take the opportunity and contribute here to find out what motivated the panelists to go abroad and what it has done for their careers. 

For the wrap up and networking part, Junior Professor Dr. Jasmin Wrobel (RUB, Philology) will join us to talk about experiences in different countries and cultures and chat about personal motivations, personal decisions, and career paths. Explore what it means to enter the German research system but also to live in different countries.

Are you planning a research stay abroad during your postdoc? Have you just arrived to the Ruhr area and trying to connect to your peers?

You will also have the chance to get in touch with representatives of the hosting institution Research Academy Ruhr and its three members RUB Research School, Graduate Center Plus (UDE) and Graduiertenzentrum (TUDo).
