With the launch of the program in 2008, the mentoring program for doctoral students has become a fundamental tool for human resources development at Paderborn University. The program supports female doctoral students and offers them an opportunity to become more familiar with possible academic careers trough the insight view of an experienced mentor. In addition, it also focuses on strategies for success in an academic context and supports professional networking.
Our expertise benefits not only female research scientists but also the institution. Besides organizing mentoring programs regularly to reach women at the various stages of their careers, we offer female doctoral students and post-doctoral candidates one-on-one coaching to address their particular career needs. For women in the post-doctoral phase, we supervise coaching with colleagues. We also provide advice on how to set up mentoring programs.
