MLU Mentoring Programme for doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers and junior professors

Shape your scientific career path in a self-determined way! - We accompany you in the process.

Mentoring at the MLU

The year 2020 started with a relaunch of the internet presence and with a restructuring of the MLU mentoring. Digitization and internationalization are becoming more of a focus as structural issues. The content of the program is based on the needs of the participants. The adjustments to (new) working environments and the expansion of the variety of topics are central points of the mentoring in 2021, too.

looking back:

The first Mentoring Year group for PhD and post-doctoral researchers (mentees) started in January 2012 with the slogan “Better together” (“Im Tandem zum Erfolg”). Since then mentoring has become an established means of human resource development at the MLU, with a focus on gender equality. Currently, female new career researchers can apply for the 6th Mentoring Year (June 2018 – June 2019)  until 31 January 2017.

The aim of the Mentoring Programme is the informal transfer of knowledge and experience between new career researchers (mentees) und professors (mentors) for the pursuit of individually sustainable strategies for a career in Academia.

At the moment, 24 female new career researchers are taking part in the Mentoring Programme at the MLU, as well as 30 post-doctoral researchers at our partner universities, Jena and Leipzig, who are participating in the programme “Prospect Professorship” (“Auf dem Weg zur Professur”). This is run as a separate programme at the University Association Halle-Jena-Leipzig. Presently 14 professors at the MLU are active mentors, 12 of them coupled with mentees from our partner universities.
