NACSN Mentoring program is designed to offer mentorship to help our junior members to develop a successful career. The program will also be a great platform for academic communication and research collaboration, career development skills, and general skills.
Senior members (associate and full professor, senior managers/CEO in industry, etc.) will serve as mentors. The junior members (assistant professor, postdoc, PhD students, etc.) will be the mentees. Participants (Mentor/Mentee) can choose a mentoring relationship based on criteria such as type of mentoring relationship (i.e., input on grant submission, general career advice, etc.) or based on research interests/topics. By selecting a few criteria, mentor and mentees will be paired on a one-to-one basis. NACSN will provide contact information for both mentor and mentee to begin establishing a mentorship relationship. We have two programs.
Faculty Mentor-Mentee Program: Offer career-related advices to junior faculties, etc.
Trainee Mentor-Mentee Program: Offer career-related advices to general graduate students, postdoc, etc.
In order to accomplish this mission of NACSN, we are now calling for both mentors who would like to offer advice, and mentees, who wants to receive guidance and advice for career start-up. If you are interested in serving as a mentor or needing a mentor, please reply to this email and send the following information: name, institution, position, research area/topics, subject as mentor or mentee. Also, any suggestions for this mentoring program will be greatly appreciated.
