Postdoc Return Program of NRW

This year’s topic is materials science, which is strongly represented in various research-strong areas of Ruhr University Bochum. We look forward to receiving your application!

In 2023/2024, Ruhr University Bochum will again be participating in the “Program to Promote the Return of Highly Qualified Young Researchers from Abroad” announced by the Ministry of Culture and Science, and thus aims to give promising young researchers abroad the opportunity to return to Germany.

With this year’s call for proposals, the Ministry of Culture and Science is addressing young researchers who are willing to return to Germany and who are working on the topic of “materials science”.

Further information on the call for proposals can be found on the Ministry’s website.
