Dorothea Schlözer Mentoring for female young researchers – apply now!

Dear late-stage PhD candidates and Postdocs,

the University of Göttingen is offering a mentoring program for female doctoral and postdoctoral researchers at Göttingen Campus, designed to accompany young female researchers through this phase of their development. It represents a contribution to increasing the number of women in leading positions at universities and non-university institutions.


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: until November 30, 2019

Start of new round: February 2020

Duration: 1 year
