Mentoring stays of doctoral and postdoctoral researchers

High quality mentoring of doctoral and postdoctoral researchers is one of the main objectives of the Arqus career development scheme. To this end, Arqus opens the first call for supporting mentoring stays of 3 days at one of the Arqus partner universities, for 4 to 5 doctoral/postdoctoral researchers, that will have personal mentoring sessions with experienced researchers and learn more about their research environment.

The funding of this call will be maximum € 1.000 per person, to cover the expenses of a 3-day stay plus 2 travel days.

The stay may consist of personal meetings with the research team of the mentor (doctoral and postdoctoral researchers, other experienced researchers), a presentation of the PhD/postdoc project (e.g. in a research seminar, etc.) and/or other research and career related activities.

E-mentoring in case of COVID-19-related travel restrictions

In case of travel restrictions, Arqus will support doctoral and postdoctoral researchers at Arqus partner universities in building mentoring partnerships with experienced researchers and broaden their international network while staying at home.

Arqus e-mentoring is an online-based adaption of the mentoring programme. It aims at maintaining international networking opportunities despite travel restrictions. The e-mentoring would be conducted via communication tools such as e-mail and video/phone meetings. The travel funding granted to the mentee would be re-purposed and used to finance coaching sessions intended to facilitate efficient online communication and goal setting for an online-based mentoring relationship.
