Research Day:
Tips and Hints for a Successful Research Career

Research Day has two goals: First, provide RUB's junior researchers with valuable tips and hints for a successful research career and second, present and discuss state-of-the-art research carried out by doctoral researchers on campus.
During the day, participants gain insights into a variety of research fields while doctoral researchers present and communicate their projects to a highly interdisciplinary peer-community and benefit from profound feedback. In recent years, Research Days have interactively focused on interdisciplinarity, internationalisation, communication and developing research career strategies. Invited experts share insights for planning a research career and different formats allow participants to pose individual questions.

  • What makes me sucessful in research?

    This year’s Research Day addresses the most important personal factors for a research career. Established postdocs will share their experiences and explain their career strategies. They will explain how they deal with personal challenges to build a successful research career. You will be invited to bring in your career knowledge in an interactive part and to discuss your individual questions with the postdocs in an informal setting. A plenary table on different career options in research will close the morning session.

    Communication of your research beyond disciplinary borders

    In the second part of the day you will discuss your own project in an interdisciplinary session with doctoral researchers from different research fields. The afternoon will put a special focus on strategies to explain your research to a non-expert audience and will offer you an interactive practice to transfer your research to a broader public.
