Mentorship program

One of the Chapter’s main goals is to provide a network and support for early career scientists. In addition to organizing meetings and webinars, the Chapter is setting up a Mentorship Program together with the recently established Early Career Scientist Committee (ECSC). The Mentorship Program’s aim is to match early career scientists with more senior researchers who can provide guidance career guidance. While these mentors can be established scientists from academia or industry, they can also be postdoctoral researchers who can share their experience in taking the next step following the completion of their PhD.


While the Mentorship Program’s details are currently being worked out, the Chapter is looking for scientists who would like to join the program as a Mentor for early career scientists. If you are interested in taking part, please contact the Chapter (bnlf.crs@gmail.com).
