Mentoring programme

The iDiv mentoring programme is relationship-oriented and a long-term programme. As mentee you will benefit from a professionally experienced mentor from the iDiv member network, who will accompany and consult you over a period of 12 months.

The goal is to support you in your professional development through guidance, goal-oriented conversations and broadening your professional network.

A confidential mentoring relationship is based on a mutual give and take, while the mentee and mentor benefit equally in an open and trusted atmosphere.

Our target group are highly-qualified postdocs within the iDiv consortium, who aspire a junior research group leadership, junior professorship or professorship at a German university. Applicants should have a high commitment to an academic career.

Our mentoring programme combines the following elements

One-to-one mentoring

Peer mentoring / workshops


Our mentors

Our mentors are excellent and experi­enced scientists and professors within the iDiv member network, who are linked to one of the executing institutions or partner institutions of iDiv.
