Dorothea Schlözer Mentoring Programme

What are my career prospects as scientist/scholar?
What criteria are paramount in deciding to pursue an academic or non-academic career?
Why is networking important?
How should I behave in competitive situations?
And how can I combine my family life with a career in academia or elsewhere?

Questions like these demonstrate that a successful career is more than just delivering optimal results at work. A hierarchy-independent mentoring relationship with a professor together with the exchange with other doctoral candidates and postdoctoral researchers can provide important orientation and support at this stage in life. The participants are provided with target-specific trainings over the duration of the program round.

Application: call closes on 30 November 2018
Start of new round: February 2018
Duration: 1 year
