RUB Research School

Strengthening Competencies for Your Own Career

Workshops for Personal Competence Development

We support you in expanding your academic profile as a postdoc and in developing your personal competencies for your research and career planning in a reflective and self-reliant way. Under the joint umbrella of Research Academy Ruhr, RUB Research School offers a workshop program for postdocs of the three UA Ruhr universities in the following areas:

  • careers in academia and beyond
  • leadership, supervision, and management competencies
  • communicating, networking, negotiating
  • acquiring external funding

In the workshops, you will work with trainers who have a high level of professional expertise in the system and with whom we have a longstanding working relationship.

We offer the workshops across disciplines and universities, allowing you to exchange ideas with postdocs from different research areas at all three UA Ruhr universities. You can register for the workshops individually (participation is free of charge). Further training on the topic of leadership can also be found on the RUB training portal.

The workshop program for postdoctoral researchers supports you in sharpening and extending your individual academic profile and successfully continuing your career within and outside academia:
