LMU Mentoring in the Faculty of Biology


Applications are once per year with a deadline on the 15th of December.

To apply, please sent one pdf containing the Mentoring Application, the Mentoring Agreement form (both found in downloads), CVs of mentor and mentee, and consent from the direct supervisor (email is sufficient) via email to dekanat19@lmu.de.
A selection committee consisting of the program coordinators and two additional faculty members (currently Silke Werth and Thorben Cordes) will review the applications based on the expected benefit of the envisioned mentorship and on scientific excellence. Furthermore, the LMU has specified that at least 50% of the mentees have to be females.
Hence, female postdocs are especially encouraged to apply.
The BioMentoring program aims to have approximately 10 mentee-mentor pairs enrolled, i.e. on average five new mentee-mentor pairs are taken up each year.
Please note that participation in the program does require a contract at the faculty, but at the time point of the application it is not mandatory for your contract to cover the entire 2-years mentoring period. Please specify in the application your perspective for a contract at LMU so that the committee can judge your expected benefits from the program.
In case of questions, please contact the program coordinators!
