Our mentors are:

  • experienced professors and senior scientists in permanent positions, who are members of any (German) university or non-university research institute
  • We do not provide a fixed pool of possible mentors. In our opinion, deciding on a suitable mentor is a first step to a committed and successful mentoring relationship. Nevertheless, if you are interested in becoming a mentor don't hesitate to contact Ruth Kamm. We are always happy to recommend dedicated mentors to our mentees.


The following makes a good mentor:

  • interest in exchange with and counselling of younger scientists
  • openness to reflect on individual experience regarding their own career paths
  • openness to new ideas and positions
  • knowledge of, experience with and contacts within their respective scientific community
