2022 EAPP Mentoring Programme

The EAPP Mentoring Programme is starting again! This is the third round of the Mentoring Programme, which pairs young scholars with more senior researchers. The aim is to offer an opportunity for early career researchers to discuss their work with an experienced researcher in the field who is not their advisor, and to ask questions, exchange ideas, and broaden their scientific network. The mentee-mentor pair can discuss specific research projects or discourse about broader topics related to research (e.g., grant writing, career planning, time management etc.).

The EAPP Mentoring Programme has been very well received in the past by both mentees and mentors, with the majority of participants indicating high satisfaction in the evaluation of the Programme.

To start off this year’s mentoring programme, we are now looking for mentors and mentees who want to be part this exciting programme!

Mentors and mentees are expected to meet at least once during the summer either in person (e.g., during the ECP20 in Madrid) or virtually via Zoom, Skype, or any other online platform of their choosing. We ask mentors to stay in touch with their mentees in the subsequent months by checking in via email and following up on the mentee’s progress.

Would you like to be a mentor? If you are an experienced scholar (five years after PhD completion with a [tenure-track] professorship) who is interested in sharing your experience and expertise as well as being involved in supporting the scientific development of a mentee, then please sign up here. Sign-up for mentors was extended!

Are you an early career scholar (PhD student or Postdoc) interested in meeting and discussing research with a more senior scholar from our field? If yes, please sign up here. The sign-up form for mentees has closed!

Please sign up for the Mentoring Programme until 20th May 2022 (extended for mentor sign-up).

After the signup is completed, the mentees will be asked to indicate their preferred mentors. While we cannot guarantee a perfect fit, we do our best to facilitate “matches” with good potential for compatibility.

Thank you for signing up for the programme and spreading the word!

Best wishes,

Manon van Scheppingen and Rebekka Weidmann
