dynaMENT is a mentoring program for female* researchers:

dynaMENT doctorate for doctoral researchers

dynaMENT advanced for post-doctoral researchers as well as junior professors and (junior) research group leaders 


We offer:

  • Highly confidential one-to-one sessions with experienced mentors

  • Individual assessment, goal-setting and development plan

  • Networking events

  • Workshops/Coaching

Female doctoral researchers as well as junior professors, (junior) research group leaders and postdoctoral researchers from all partners are encouraged to apply.

Why do we offer a program for female scientists? This is what the mentors say:

It is mandatory to support the high potential women, if equality is a true goal. The mentees need a context where it is possible to discuss all daily aspects of career development as well as personal aspects of job situations. Learning from experiences of seniors is the best and quickest way to do this and woman-to-woman is fundamental.

Because of the lack of role models in our academic world, female scientists are sometimes lacking the natural encouragement to get onto the track of an academic career. Active mentoring can help here.
