Mentoring programme for female researchers

mentoring³ is explicitly aimed at female early career researchers. Postdoctoral and doctoral researchers of the University Alliance Ruhr universities who are aiming for a career in science and research can take part on an annual rotation basis.

mentoring³ is part of the Research Academy Ruhr programme and offers the participants a two-year course tailored to their respective professional culture. GC Plus coordinates the activities for the humanities, economics and social sciences, TU Dortmund University for engineering sciences and Ruhr-Universität Bochum for natural sciences. However, this division only applies to coordination. Candidates from all disciplines and all three universities are invited to apply for participation.

Please find all information on the application process and further details at the Research Academy Ruhr website.
