NDORMS research staff are also invited to participate in the Medical Sciences Divisional peer mentoring scheme. A number of NDORMS senior staff are already active mentors in this scheme.

The scheme involves the formation of peer mentoring circles comprising 3-4 members of research staff and one more senior member of staff, which will meet at least 4 times in 2015. It aims to support the development of researchers across the Division by:

  • Encouraging self-reflection 
  • Increasing networking opportunities through peer circles 
  • Providing access to senior staff members outside of the researchers’ home department

Mentors often gain as much as their mentees from the process and find that it provides an opportunity to review their own experience.

Mentors must be experienced researchers, but could be at different stages of their careers. For example:

Academic staff, PIs, Senior/experienced postdocs (especially those wishing to develop their mentoring skills)
