The EADI mentoring programme “Develop Your Talents” provides young scholars with the chance to exchange with someone further advanced in their career. The mentoring does not offer professional coaching to the mentees, but accompaniment on a younger sister/elder sister level. As some of our mentors may also be active in the Working Groups, opportunities for further collaboration may arise. Submit by 30 September!

Pursuing a career in academia can be challenging. Young scholars have to deal with a number of questions and uncertainties concerning research work, career planning and personal life such as publishing strategies, the importance of conferences and presentation of own research, finding entry points for building own networks, life-work balance and many more.

Programme aim and target group:

The programme’s aim is to match experienced scholars to young/early career researchers pursuing a career in academia to provide one-to-one guidance and support. In addition to young and early career researchers, in particular female researchers are warmly welcomed to take part in the programme.

Concept:

  • The programme is coordinated by the EADI Secretariat with members from the EADI network serving as mentors (on voluntary basis)
  • Mentees will be paired with mentors according to their field of interest and for a limited period (12 months) giving individual guidance on issues such as publishing, careers selection, networking and conferences. The mentor offers support, advice and reflection
  • The mentoring does not offer professional coaching to the mentees, but rather exchange with someone further advanced in their career
  • The Secretariat does not coordinate or facilitate the individual mentoring interactions. It is up to the mentor/mentee’s choice how often they meet and by what means (e.g. in person/via skype)
  • Participation in the programme does not entail eligibility to financial support for travel costs etc.
