The mentoring program for doctoral students has become a fundamental tool for human resources development at Paderborn University. The program aims at supporting female doctoral students during their Ph.D. and offers them an opportunity to become more familiar with possible academic careers through the insight view of an experienced mentor. In addition, it also focuses on strategies for success in an academic context and supports professional networking.
The Program offers a 15-month mentoring program supporting our participants concerning their career development, including:
• one-to-one-mentoring with a female professor from another university to share personal and professional experiences
• the opportunity to build a strong interdisciplinary network consisting of female doctorate students
• workshops to improve your position in academia
Participation in the middle of the doctoral period is recommended.
On Wednesday, 16.06.2021, the team is offering a digital, one-hour information event at 16.00 for all interested women. Registrations can be made via this link: go.upb.de/Infoveranstaltung
