The Application Process

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

After Acceptance to the Program

-We will find a potential mentor for you. This matching of mentor and mentee is essential for a successful mentoring process. The mentors are excellent researchers (professors, group leaders, senior scientists, scientific coordinators) on the Bahrenfeld Research Campus and beyond.

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. Of course all the discussions will be handled confidentially.

-We would like to welcome you at a Kick-Off ceremony.

Mandatory Events

Within the program, we offer you the following events:

-The introduction 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.

-2-3 accompanying trainings which are executed by experienced external coaches. These trainings cover different individuell aspects of a scientific career (e.g. self-marketing in science, leadership in scientific areas, conflict management etc.).

-3-4 networking events to discuss specific topics and to give you the chance to build your personal network within the group of mentees and beyond.

Please note: Attending the dynaMENT events and trainings are mandatory to successfully complete the program. At the end you´ll receive a certificate of participation.
