The Application Process

After we have reviewed your application we will inform you if are invited to a personal interview in which your CV, your career plans and your personal motivation for the mentoring program will be discussed.

After Acceptance to the Program

You will have another interview in which your personal goals and objectives for the mentoring will be specified. Also, we will discuss the matching with a potential mentor with you.

Please note: Being a mentee in this program means you will receive a lot of support. Not only will you have regular meetings with your assigned mentor. You will also receive a close and personal support by the project team. We expect you to document your goals in writing and to discuss the ongoing process regularly. Of course all the discussions will be handled confidentially.

Mandatory Events

Within the program, you are asked to participate in the following events: The kick-off workshop at the beginning of the program will cover information about the mentoring process in general and the role of mentor and mentee. The final workshop at the end of the mentoring will help you reflect on the meetings with your mentor and summarize your success.

In addition we offer three accompanying workshops which are executed by experienced external coaches. These workshops cover different aspects of a scientific career (e.g. self-marketing in science, leadership in scientific areas, project management etc.). Also, networking events give you the chance to build your personal network within the group of mentees and beyond.
