EMCR mentorship program 2014/15: Mentors sought

The Early-Mid Career Researcher Committee committee is seeking mentors for the 2014/15 Mentorship Program. Mentors can be at any stage of their careers (A to E) and be basic scientists or clinician scientists.  This 12 month program includes mentors and mentees across AMREP including the CCS, SPHPM, Baker IDI, Burnet Institute and Alfred Hospital, whereby early career researchers are paired with a mentor to discuss career planning. Mentors and mentees meet each month to discuss topics such as grant writing, fellowships and career disruptions.  The EMCR committee mentorship team has been running this highly successful program for a couple of years. The program is the flagship for EMCR mentorship programs in the Medical Faculty at Monash.  Please be informed that mentorship is a component of career advancement at Monash and in various fellowship schemes.  Please contact Jennifer Wilkinson-Berka email: Jennifer.Wilkinson-Berka@monash.edu for further information
