6th Global Young Faculty
An interdisciplinary network for outstanding researchers in the Metropolis Ruhr: Nominations for the 6th Global Young Faculty (GYF) can be submitted until 15 June 2019. In May, information events will take place at the UA Ruhr universities.
In the GYF, excellent postdoctoral researchers from the Ruhr Area meet to work on topics of common interest in interdisciplinary working groups. The members of the network cooperate across university and faculty boundaries in self-chosen topics and projects. A total budget of 200,000 euros is available to the working groups for joint research projects, events, cooperations and invitations to domestic and foreign experts. In addition, all members receive an individual travel budget of 5,000 euros.
The program is aimed at highly qualified early career researchers from all disciplines who have completed their doctorates with very good results and are aiming for a scientific career. Nomination proposals can be submitted to the Mercator Research Center Ruhr (MERCUR) via the rectorates of the UA Ruhr universities until 15 June 2019.
The Ruhr-Universität Bochum, the TU Dortmund University and the University of Duisburg-Essen will hold information events on the GYF VI call for proposals in May. The dates can be found here: www.global-young-faculty.de/informationsveranstaltungen_gyf-vi/.
The network is an initiative of the Mercator Foundation in cooperation with the University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr) and is coordinated by the Mercator Research Center Ruhr (MERCUR).
