Ruhr University Bochum is committed to diversity in its staff, faculty, and student body. Applications from all disciplines in the social science and humanities are encouraged. Since we seek to increase the participation of women in areas in which they are currently underrepresented, we explicitly encourage women to apply.

Individuals with disabilities will be favored in case of equal qualifications among competing candidates.

Ruhr University draws its scholarly strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific disciplines on a single, coherent campus: the Life Sciences, the Natural Sciences, Engineering, the Social Sciences and the Humanities. The highly dynamic setting enables national and international students and researchers to work closely together in studying, teaching and research, and across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and departments. Key facts and figures: more than 32,000 students (with international students from 140 countries worldwide), nearly 5,000 faculty and staff, 20 faculties, 6 research departments and 12 interdisciplinary research institutes, numerous graduate programmes.

Stiftung Mercator is one of Germany’s largest foundations. It initiates and funds projects that promote better educational opportunities in schools and universities. In the spirit of Gerhard Mercator, it supports initiatives that embody the idea of openmindedness and tolerance through intercultural encounters, encouraging the sharing of knowledge and culture. The foundation provides a platform for new ideas to enable people – regardless of their national, cultural or social background – to develop their personality, become involved in society and make the most of the opportunities available to them. In this way it wants to let ideas take flight. Stiftung Mercator takes an entrepreneurial, international and professional approach to its work. It has a particular affinity with the Ruhr area, the home of its founding family.
