MEWISMA "Academic Career" Mentoring Program

The universities of Gießen and Marburg offer a mentoring program for postdocs who would like to receive consultation and support from a mentor in taking the next steps in their academic career. The "Academic Career" mentoring program is what has been called a "cross-mentoring" program. This means that the mentees and mentors are from different universities, in this case from the universities of Gießen and Marburg. The mentors are academics from various departments of Justus-Liebig-Universität and Philipps-Universität Marburg.

In addition to the personal mentoring relationship, the mentoring program also involves accompanying events and events for the purpose of networking, such as mentee and mentor workshops, an introduction to collegial consultation, meet-the-experts sessions, and an expert conference on mentoring. There are also additional umbrella events at the beginning, after the first half, and at the end of the one-year program.
