Early Career Mentoring Program

We are seeking expressions of interest from members who have completed their PhD within the past 7 years (career interruptions will be taken into account) and who wish to participate in our inaugural (2023) round of the GSA Early Career Mentoring Program.

This program aims to match participants with mentors in a bespoke manner, creating new connections between ECRs and more established genetics researchers in AustralAsia. We will offer the opportunity for participants to network with each other and we will facilitate panel discussions about strategies for building careers in genetics.

Programming for the inaugural cohort will be supported though the end of 2023 and we expect the minimum time commitment from mentors will be approximately one hour per month on average, scheduled at the mutual convenience of mentees/mentors. We will hold one-hour panel discussions bi-monthly for mentees on topics of interest.

If you would like to submit an expression of interest, please complete this application by the close of business on Friday, 18th of November 2023. Successful applicants will be notified by Thursday, 8th of December 2023. Applications for next round will open in 2024.
