Who can apply?

It is the intention of the MLU Mentoring Programme to support equal opportunities for women in Academia and a lasting integration into Academia. The MLU Mentoring Programme is therefore aimed exclusively at female new career researchers.

Therefore, MLU (Martin-Luther-University of Halle-Wittenberg) female new career researchers of all levels of qualification and all disciplines can apply:

  • PhD candidates at the beginning of their qualification phase
  • PhD candidates advanced in their thesis
  • Post-doctoral candidates at the beginning and during their qualification phase
  • Principal investigators
  • Junior professors

At enrolment you can choose between different modules (Module), depending on the individually intended career path or academic qualification phase. Participation in the Mentoring Programme is possible at different points in time throughout the whole qualification process and a combination of different modules is possible.

New career researchers, who would like to take part in the Mentoring Programme, should aim, and be pro-active in looking for, a leading position (in Academia). Besides being pro-active and motivated, mentees are expected to be open to constructive feedback and willing to walk the extra mile.

Participation in a previous module is not obligatory for an application. It is possible to take part in the Mentoring Programme during family leave or while caring for a relative (exemption). A return, e.g. after family leave, is possible on account of the modular structure of the programme.


The number of mentees admitted per year into each module of the Mentoring Programme, is limited.  The mentoring commission reviews applications and makes recommendations about the intake into the Mentoring Programme. The selection is made in accordance with fixed selection criteria for each module applied for.

Application period/application deadline

An application for the Mentoring Programme is possible all year round. Membership of the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg (according to §3, 1.-7 of the constitution) is a requirement for application and participation. The deadline for an application is 15.07. of every year.
