The Réseau romand de mentoring pour femmes is opening the call for its 11th edition. It is a mentoring program for women researchers from universities in the French speaking part of Switzerland and the EPFL, aiming at encouraging women to pursue an academic career and facilitating their integration into the scientific community.

This mentoring program is aimed at doctoral students in their 4th, 5th and 6th year, post-doctoral researchers and other junior/intermediate researchers (as lecturers, readers, MERs).

The term mentoring refers to a supporting relationship in which an experienced person from academia (a mentor, in this case a professor at a Swiss or foreign university) shares his or her experience, contacts and knowledge of academic structures, as well as formal and informal rules with a researcher at an earlier stage of her academic career (a mentee). The program starts in April 2021 and lasts until December 2022. The number of places available is limited to 24 mentees.

Are you interested? Information about the program and the conditions for participation can be found here, with the application form. The deadline for applications is 9 March 2021.

All training, coaching and mentoring actions for women available in the institutions involved in MARVEL and to which you may participate are listed and kept updated here.

Furthermore, MARVEL is committed to enhance work-life balance for students and staff. Information about existing measures, daycare facilities and advice about work-life balance in the different institutions involved in MARVEL are listed here.
