Fakultät für Chemie und Pharmazie

Mentoring Program of the Faculty

The Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy has developed a new format for its mentoring program. The former program "LMU Mentoring", anchored in the sustainability program of the Second Excellence Initiative, ended in 2017.

The Faculty's mentoring program aims to provide outstanding female junior researchers – at the doctoral and post-doctoral level - with intensive support on their way to a scientific career leading, hopefully, to an academic position.

In this program a central role is assigned to the mentor. He or she is willing to offer this support to a participating junior scientist (mentee) in the form of personal meetings and discussions, optimally several times per year. On a one-to-one basis, the mentors function as role models, offering their mentees support in career planning and in creating their own academic profiles. Additionally, workshops in selected topics, coaching seminars as well as individual trainings are offered. The mentees will initially be supported for one year.

If you are interested in applying for the program, please follow the instructions below.

Guidelines for the mentoring program

Prerequisites for the program

Accepted mentees may choose from a pool of potential mentors. The mentees may also select a mentor from outside this pool. Names and contact details of potential mentors can be found below. The mentees are asked to personally contact the mentor. If the relationship mentor-mentee is established and agreed on mutually, please communicate this to the mentoring program coordination, using the form mentor-mentee agreement.

Current Pool of Mentors

Within the program the mentees may apply for travel support and funds for student research assistance.
