Career Mentoring

To provide guided mentoring and career development opportunities to junior researchers, IMB founded the IMB Mentoring Programme for Junior Researchers. The programme is open to all PhD students in the International PhD Programme (IPP) and postdocs in the IMB Postdoc Programme (IPPro), partnering participants with professionals working in academia and beyond. Mentors provide focused and impartial advice and encourage mentees to better understand their career path options, helping them realise their full potential.
