The VALIDATE Network - Vaccine development for complex intracellular neglected pathogens
AMS Mentoring Programme, 2020
No deadline stated
The Academy's one-to-one Mentoring programme provides post-doctoral and independent biomedical and health researchers with career development support by pairing them with an Academy Fellow or senior academic.
We recommend that all early-career researchers consider finding a mentor to support their development; this may be done informally through meeting people at networking opportunities that you keep in touch with, or formally through mentoring programmes. Our programme has funding to support people at some of the critical points in their career with mentoring from our Fellowship.
For post-doctoral and independent clinical researchers:
NIHR funded Clinician Scientists, Clinical Lecturers, including locally recognised clinical lecturers, and any other fully NIHR funded medical or dental trainees at post-doctoral level or above, including awards such as PDF, CDF and ACFs who already have a PhD.
Clinician Scientist Fellows and post-doctoral research-active Clinical Lecturers.
The Academy’s Mentoring programme is currently only open to post-doctoral researchers. Many universities already have internal mentoring programmes for students and we strongly encourage you to make the most of your existing professional network for the necessary career support. To find out more information on starting your own mentoring scheme, visit the Mentoring Catalysis webpage.
All researchers are welcome to attend many of the Academy’s Career Development events, which feature inspiring talks from Fellows of the Academy and other more senior researchers, networking opportunities and the chance to enhance the ‘soft skills’ that support your research activity.
