Become an academic mentor or mentee

Do you want to help a talented colleague make the most of their potential? Or are you interested in getting advice from an experienced colleague who can help steer your research career in the right direction? Then become a mentor or mentee in AU’s mentorship programme Empower Talent! The deadline for registration is 23 April 2020.

How do I best administer my time between teaching, education and knowledge sharing? How do I create the best strategy for my research career? And what can I do to get my work noticed in the research environment?

These are some of the questions that may be on the minds of academic staff members at assistant professor level. The mentorship programme Empower Talent! is designed to match members of staff at assistant professor level with more experienced colleagues at associate professor or professor level who want to share their experience and advice.

If you sign up as a mentor or mentee, the programme gives you an opportunity to give or receive advice and guidance, while developing your professional network at the same time.
