What is the purpose?

The mentorship program is intended to provide graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in the field of Life Sciences with connections to working professionals.

How does it work?

As an 8-month program, graduate student mentees are given the opportunity to become closely acquainted with a professional mentor in their field of interest. More specifically, they may learn about tasks involved in the day-to-day job, receive career guidance, and/or acquire valuable knowledge to enable a smooth transition from academia to industry post-graduation. Mentees and mentors are paired on the basis of career interest or professional development goals and interactions between the mentees and mentors are self-guided.

When does it take place?

The mentorship program runs from January 2021 to August 2021 and features self-directed one-on-one mentor-mentee virtual interactions as well as formally organized events hosted by the LSCDS.

Applications for the 2021 Program will open on November 23rd, 2020 and close on December 4th, 2020 @11:59PM.
