Applications are now open for the EPSA's new mentoring scheme. The EPSA mentoring scheme is open to all EPSA members. It is designed to help junior philosophers of science (i.e., graduate students and early-career postdocs) currently working or aiming to work in Europe. Its aim is to provide career advice, guidance, and general counsel on issues that junior scholars tend to face in the profession, including but not limited to:
Both mentors and mentees must complete a short online application. This is an opportunity to reflect on what you hope to achieve and helps us to make a strong match.
As a mentee, you will be able to tap into the wisdom of a senior member of the profession. To benefit from the scheme, mentees need to fill in a form, where they provide some details about the type of enquiry they aim to address with the mentor. Access to the mentoring scheme is exclusively restricted to EPSA members.
As a mentor, you will have an opportunity to pass on your knowledge and experience. Mentors should be senior scholars in the profession (ranging from experienced postdocs to faculty Professors) interested in providing occasional counsel to junior scholars on a range of issues.
Mentoring activities can take place by any means that the mentor and the mentee consider appropriate (in person, by phone, by skype, etc.). The activity should typically take no more than 60-90 minutes. This is a working model adopted from SWIP Germany where this kind of mentoring has already been successfully established.
Mentors will always have the final say in whether they want to provide counselling in any particular case.
All the information will be treated confidentially. Neither the contact details of the mentees nor mentors will be made public, and the information will only be shared upon specific user requests.
