RUB Research School


Interested students and doctoral researchers are most welcome to attend a personal consultation on the IRB and its application procedure at RUB Research School. Please contact Dr. Sarah Gemicioglu for an appointment.

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, the online form is currently not available. Please refer to this document for the information and accompanying letters requested in the application.

An application needs to include

  • Completely filled application form including personal data, information on the doctoral project, its internationalization concept and its benefit for the applicant,
  • Two letters of reference
  • Proof of the qualifications given (e.g. final grade of  master studies, prizes, stipends, additional skills and qualifications, panel memberships, publications, teaching experiences, etc.)
  • Document of acceptance as doctoral researcher or confirmation of future supervisor  

Outline your individual internationalization concept and benefits for your doctorate. This does not need to include a fully detailed list of activities and timetable. You can already apply for funding even if you do not have a fully detailed plan (budget, time frame) of all your international activities during your doctorate yet.  

Consider the review criteria while writing your application!
