Mentoring Application

Applications for the new mentoring cycle of the ASciNA mentoring program starting in September 2017 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!

Eligble 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 September 2017, and will at least stay until the end of August 2018. Mentees are required to be members of ASciNA.

  • Closing date for applications: June 23, 2017
  • Period of mentoring relationship: September 1, 2017 to August 30, 2018

Financial support

Three 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 Technische Universität Wien is also supporting two pairs, when the mentees are members of their Alumni Club.

As a third sponsor, the Technical University of Graz will support one mentoring team.
