RES Mentoring Programme: Call for Mentees


The RES Women’s Committee holds an annual Mentoring Programme, offering early career female researchers with the opportunity to attend an online mentoring programme.

The programme provides mentees with networking opportunities, advice and feedback on papers for publication and is designed to support career progression and support female academic economists to get published.

Call for Mentees

If you are an early career female researcher in economics and would like to participate in the RES Mentoring Programme, please apply to the programme by completing the application form by Monday 8 November.

If selected, mentees will be asked to submit their CV and a paper (preferably solo-authored and not nearing publication) by the end of December. Mentees and mentors will be matched based on mutual research interests wherever possible.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Women’s Committee: wcommittee@res.org.uk.

Full details on the mentoring sessions and the mentoring retreat can be found here.

A note on eligibility: Mentees must be members of the RES and be early career female researchers working in the UK or in countries with very similar academic environments and career patterns. Early career female researchers are female academics who have recently obtained their PhD or are close to their PhD completion.
