Mentoring for doctoral candidates
In cooperation with the Humboldt Graduate School, the Berlin School of Mind and Brain offers its doctoral candidates the opportunity to take part in two mentoring programs.
The Peer Mentoring is to support doctoral candidates in their search for an appropriate career path. It is tailored to doctoral candidates who don’t yet know what to do after their dissertation. The core component of this peer mentoring is the moderated exchange between the participants and the planning of a “Career Prospects Day”, to which the participants can invite young professionals from interesting occupational fields.

The One-to-One Mentoring is to support doctoral candidates on their transition to their next career phase. It is tailored to doctoral candidates who already have an idea as to where their future career lies. The core component is a temporary, supportive relationship between an experienced person (mentor) and a young talent (mentee). The mentor should be experienced in the field the mentee would like to enter after the completion of their dissertation, e.g. the academic world.

It is possible for doctoral candidates to participate in one or both of the above mentioned parts.
