Promoting young talent

The promotion of young scientists plays a central role at our faculty. The demand for IT specialists is not only huge in industry, but also in academia. Therefore, it is our goal to closely accompany and support students interested in research.


Students are already involved in exciting research projects during their studies and thus motivated to think and participate in science. In addition to highly topical lectures and seminars by renowned researchers, as well as the opportunity to write theses at the various chairs, working student jobs at chairs and the dean’s office allow a deeper immersion in different sub-disciplines already during the studies.

Doctoral students

Exciting doctoral projects can be realized at our faculty. IT always offers new questions to investigate. Frequently, the various research groups advertise PhD positions, for example also the Cluster of Excellence CASA. Our PhD students are automatically part of the RUB Research School. The central graduate school offers a wide range of resources for special research projects. These include consultations, continuing education, networking events, programs for non-material and financial support of individual projects, and opportunities for internationalization of research.


The faculty’s support of young researchers does not end after the doctoral procedures: Junior professorships on cutting-edge disciplines are established on a regular basis to provide talented young scientists with space for their research and to support them in their scientific careers.
