Research Professorships

The research professorships will be filled by internationally distinguished scholars whose research profiles distinctly intersect with the research portfolios of at least two UA Ruhr universities. A reduced teaching load allows for intensive, focussed research.

The profiles of the professorships were carved out in a participatory process with members of pertinent UA Ruhr faculties. What all three professorships have in common is that they are interdisciplinary by design, and they tie in with emerging innovative fields of research in the social sciences and humanities.
