Mentoring for Female Postdocs at Kiel University

via:mento_international and via:mento are mentoring programmes for female postdoctoral researchers of all faculties at Kiel University. They are directed at women who, having achieved their doctorate, aim to pursue their academic career. The programmes' participants (mentees) will be supported in the planning and implementation of their career steps concerning the transition from their status as postdoctoral researchers to professorships. An individual mentoring relationship with a renowned professor or senior scientist, acting as mentor, is at the core of the programme. In addition, these mentoring programmes offer the opportunity to acquire interdisciplinary expertise and provide room for exchange among the participants.

Since 2020, participants may choose between two programme lines.



Funded by the Cluster of Excellence "The Future Ocean" and the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center 754 "Climate - Biogeochemistry Interactions in the Tropical Ocean", and designed specifically for the needs of female marine scientists, the English programme branch via:mento_ocean was conducted from 2012 to 2019. Further information concerning via:mento_ocean is available here.
