Mentoring for professors

The Career Development Office organizes a mentoring programme for recently appointed professors. It is a one-to-one supportive, developmental and confidential relationship, to reflect upon your career ambitions, questions, hurdles.

Who is who

The mentee is a recently appointed professor at Ghent University (less than 2 years of experience as ZAP, at least a 50 % contract).
The mentor is a professor of Ghent University, a more experienced, positive role model:  a sounding board on career development and strategies on the longer term, in a safe setting.

What’s in it for you as a mentee?

Discover the set-up of the programme and the benefits and listen to this short tutorial: "Why start mentoring?.
