Mentoring programme for female postdocs


The mentoring programme for female postdoctoral researchers is an inter-university service provided by the universities of Halle-Wittenberg, Jena and Leipzig since 2013.

It is targeted at highly-qualified female Postdocs, researchers undertaking a ‚habilitation‘, junior scientist group leaders and junior professors in all disciplines at these universities who were awarded their doctorate at least 2 years ago and aspire to a professorship at a German university.

The programme aims to enable these female researchers to access personal support from experienced mentors in acquiring the formal and informal knowledge, key competencies and professional contacts required for effective planning and pursuit of a career in science, and thereby help to integrate them sustainably in the higher education system.
