About Science College
The opportunity to get in contact with the diversity of science at large, the intellectual exchange and communication across disciplinary boundaries, makes the RUB Research School unique. Science College is one of the most appropriate means to direct budding researchers' attention to overarching issues of science and society. The event covers recent transdisciplinary research topics and involves leading minds of relevant disciplines.
To receive the Research School certificate, doctoral researchers have to participate in Science College once during the doctorate.
Science College 2016 - The RUB-Wide Graduate School: Chances-Benefits-Networking
"The Research School at the Ruhr-University Bochum is the place to be pursuing a PhD - as a graduate of the very first batch I couldn’t agree more. Happy to talk about my experience at the Alumni panel at the Science College, 07.07.2016. Looking very much forward to joint projects at various levels“
Prof. Dr. Eleonore Soei-Winkels, Research School 2006-2008
This year’s Science College focused on the role of RUB Research School as an interdisciplinary graduate school for doctoral researchers at Ruhr-University.
The programme revolved around the Research School’s aims as a graduate school and its offers to doctoral researchers as a complementary training facility. Hosted by Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Löwenstein, speaker of RUB RS and the RSPLUS project, the event featured interactive elements, keynote speeches on fundamentals of RUB Research School and RS Alumni who shared their stories of how RUB RS supported their individual research. We would like to thank the alumni who took the time to share their expierences with the next generation of doctoral researchers:
- Dr. Eva-Maria Roelevink (Postdoc), Chair for Economic History, Ruhr University Bochum
