- Do you want to become a more successful researcher?
- Do you want to build your research profile?
- Are you strategising for future academic promotions?
- Would you benefit from the support and guidance of an experienced, senior researcher?
The Flinders University Researcher Mentoring Program pairs early-career researchers (ECRs) with senior academics. Through the Program, senior researchers support ECRs to develop their research careers, meet their research aspirations and goals, and strategise for future academic success.
This Researcher Mentoring Program also provides an opportunity for ECRs to create a University-wide community with their fellow mentees who are at similar career stages (within 8 years post-PhD). This ECR community serves as a source of support and information for the mentees during the Program and beyond.
This Program runs from March to November each year. In the weeks leading up to the official launch in March, we hold sessions to provide mentees and mentors with information about the Program, expectations, and guidance about mentoring. During the Program, each mentee–mentor pair meet regularly, according to the schedules they decide. In addition, the cohort of mentees gather for three Roundtable Workshops to discuss topics of relevance to their career stage.
For more information including the program overview, eligibility criteria for mentees and mentors, and key dates for 2023, please see the Program Guidelines.
Expressions of interest are now open for the 2023 Program (see details below). Successful applicants will be notified in January 2023.
Applications are by expression of interest for both mentees and mentors.
