Research Career Day

All About Making a Career in Research

Are you doing your doctorate and would like to know what a career in research means? Do you want to figure out if a research career is the right choice for you? The Research Career Day provides strategic knowledge and personal orientation about career perspectives, career paths and requirements for a career in research.

What does the Research Career Day offer?

The Research Carer Day fosters an early understanding of the most important career factors, career strategies and personal decisions for a career in research. The half day event offers you information and insights into:

  • structural & institutional aspects of a research career
  • career steps, career paths & career strategies
  • career requirements & conditions
  • explicit & implicit career factors
  • personal strategies & decisions to make a career in research
  • aims, benefits & challenges of a research career

The program combines expert input, the exchange of experiences with Postdocs and experienced researchers, and interactive elements. It provides knowledge and experiences to enable an early career orientation for doctoral researchers interested in a research career and helps to understand what can already be important during the doctorate.

Who is invited to participate?

The Research Career Day is aimed at doctoral researchers from all research areas at Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and the University of Duisburg-Essen who would like to find out about a career in research at an early stage.

We offer this event in English to integrate all research areas and research languages.

Research Career Day on 09 November 2023, 14.00–17.15 h at RUB.

The Research Career Day supports you to gain career orientation (career goals, career steps, career paths & options, institutional frameworks & conditions) and to understand how to develop an academic profile (career requirements, explicit and implicit career factors, career strategies, personal motivations & decisions to make a research career) for a career in research.
