Research Groups

The College for Social Sciences and Humanities gives outstanding postdoctoral researchers in early career stages the opportunity to further develop a specialised research profile and lead a research group. On a team with two doctoral candidates, they conduct independent research on a topic of their choice over a fixed period of time. This approach reflects the College’s fundamental principle of openness.

Potential research group leaders are identified in a competitive, cross-university recruitment process for open-topic junior professor positions. Academic excellence, potential compatibility of the projects with the research portfolio of the University Alliance Ruhr, and the scope of international cooperation are essential for selection.

The recruitment process is currently ongoing. As soon as the research groups are formed, you will find details on their focus and activities on this website.
