Scope of Research Mentoring at TU Darmstadt
The main aim of Research Mentoring at TU Darmstadt is to help early career researchers establish their own independent research focus, as one qualifying factor for an academic career. Research Mentoring comprises advice about when, where and how to submit research grant proposals, whether secondments are beneficial and where they best be spent, which conferences are most beneficial, and how to build up research-specific networks. General comments on individual research proposals will be made, but in-depth, subject-related details will be left to discussions with experts in the field. Research Mentoring is explicitly offered also to newly appointed professors at TU Darmstadt. Mentoring should preferably take place in one-on-one meetings. In agreement with the respective mentor, mentoring can consist of single meetings or extend to long-term consultation.
At TU Darmstadt Senior Scientific Advisors support Early Career Researchers. Are you interested in personal advice in all questions related to research grants? For Research Mentoring please contact (Dr. Karin Süß),
