FINAL WEEK TO APPLY: OHBM International Mentoring Programme Sign-up

Dear All,

Between September 1st and September 31st 2019, registration for the fourth round of the Online International Mentoring Programme organized and coordinated by the OHBM Student and Postdoc Special Interest Group will take place. In the programme, every OHBM member can become an (online) mentor or a mentee to another OHBM member(s) for a period of approximately one year (October-June). During this time, the mentor can support the mentee to grow in academia by providing advice on topics such as—but not limited to—personal development, grant writing, and work-life balance. In response to the feedback from previous participants and the increased interest of mentees in industry, we have also invited a number of mentors from industry to join us for this new round.

If you are interested in being a mentor and/or mentee, please fill out this short registration form and you will be contacted with further details.

If you participated in any of the previous rounds and would like to further take part in the programme, you have two possible ways (It is possible to choose both options):

  1. If you would like to continue being paired with your current mentors/mentees, please first discuss this with your mentoring partner. In this case, please do not re-subscribe for the programme and please delegate the mentee to fill in this feedback form for us.
  2. If you would like to apply for new mentors/mentees, you will be able to do so using the registration link above.

Please feel free to forward this message to your colleagues. Please also forward this email to former researchers working in industry, if you know any, as we are still looking for more industry representatives to join the programme as mentors this year.

We would like to thank all the OHBM mentors and mentees who participated in the previous three rounds of the programme! The third round of the programme is now ending. We hope that most of you had an opportunity to meet in person during the OHBM Annual Meeting in Rome. If you have feedback for us, please contact us at Please share any comments which might help to further improve our programme!
