Mentoring for junior scientists
Doctoral and post-doctoral students at Thuringian universities have the opportunity to exchange experiences and tips and tricks for the career path in peer-mentoring groups. In many situations, independent opinions and advice can be very helpful. In this case, mentors (professional practitioners) are on hand to pass on their skills and experience. The search for appropriate contact persons is supported by the Thüringer Koordinierungsstelle NWT. The peer groups organize meetings for a common exchange on different topics. Supported by the Thüringer Koordinierungsstelle NWT, exciting career advancement events take place. The group work starts at the beginning of a semester and is run for up to 2 semesters.
