Mentoring Application

Applications for the new mentoring cycle of the ASciNA mentoring program starting in September 2020 are now possible.

The aim of the AMP is to help young researchers with their career planning during their (at least one-year-long) stay in North America (USA, Canada, Mexiko). Mentees will be matched with an Austrian mentor, who is an established researcher in his field and institution in North America. Apply now - extended until May 31!

Supported by

MedUni Innsbruck

Eligible candidates

By definition "mentees" are Austrian scientists at the beginning of their scientific career, who are already doing a PhD or PostDoc in North America when the AMP starts in October 2020, and will at least stay until the end of August 2021. Mentees are required to be members of ASciNA.

  • Closing date for applications: Extended until May 31, 2020
  • Period of mentoring relationship: September 1, 2020 to August 31, 2021

Financial support

Four partners of ASciNA generously support the mentoring program financially. So, mentees and mentors can meet in person, mentees can travel to conferences, or take career building steps such as scientific courses.

The Alumni Club of the Medical University of Vienna is going to support two mentoring pairs financially, when the mentee is an Alumni of the Medical University of Vienna and a member of the Alumni Club.

The Alumni Club of the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) is supporting three pairs, when the mentees are members of their Alumni Club.

As a third sponsor, the Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) will support one mentoring team.

Our fourth supporter is the Medical University of Innsbruck, who will facilitate two mentoring pairs.
