A group mentoring programme is organised by the Research Policy Office and Organisational Development. Groups of usually 6 postdocs are assigned an academic mentor and meet about 4 times in the year to discuss challenges that mentees face, find solutions and engage in career development activities. Additionally to the experience of the mentor, mentees benefit from peer-to-peer support. Feedback from previous participants is available here.
This programme usually starts in January-February and information will be advertised in the PDC Newsletter.
Current deadline to sign up: 27th November 2019, 5 pm.
Gender initiative mentoring
The Gender Initiative at Queen’s organises a mentoring programme every year designed to advise women researchers in the area of career progression. It is open to postdoctoral female researchers but places are limited and it is advised to apply as soon as the scheme is advertised. Postdocs are paired with a more experienced researcher from a different Faculty and meet several times in the year. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
2018 application deadline: 5th October 2018
