IFS-Mentoring: Mentoring Program for International Female Scholars

IFS Mentoring BoxenLogo 320 ger

After a very successful seventh cycle of its International Female Scholars Mentoring Program (IFS Mentoring), the University of Cologne is pleased to announce a new cycle beginning in January 2020.

Women still encounter specific challenges in the academic environment and their scientific community as well as in working environments outside of academia. Not only do they find themselves to be underrepresented in (non-)scientific careers, especially in higher positions, but they also face the difficult situation of juggling family responsibilities and career objectives.

The program aims to supervise and empower female scientists during the advanced stages of their careers. The participants of the mentoring program will benefit from the experience of their mentors, who will be chosen carefully in an individual matching process. Through additional training and workshops, participants will gain insights into key aspects such as career planning, acquisition of project funds, gender in academia, and work-life-balance. Individual coaching encourages participants to develop their own skills and competencies. The program facilitates an excellent platform to acquire and broaden participants’ professional networks.

  • Target group: international female postdocs, junior professors as well as advanced doctoral candidates of (an affiliation with) the University of Cologne
  • Program duration: one year
  • Participation is free of charge
  • Registration fee: 30 EUR

Please email your application, including an application form, your CV (if applicable with a list of publications) and a short letter of motivation, to Dr. Phuong Glaser (p.glaser@verw.uni-koeln.de) by October 31, 2019.
