The Royal Economic Society (RES) Women’s Committee is looking for female professors and senior economists to mentor female early career researchers.
The role involves leading a mentoring session at the online Royal Economic Society Mentoring Retreat which will take place in April or May 2022. The retreat will offer informal networking for mentees and mentors and will include plenary sessions on topics such as promotions, applications for research funding and other relevant career advice.
Each mentor will be matched with 3-4 mentees based on common research interests. The session will consist of an online meeting between the mentees and mentor. Mentees will submit their CV and a paper and these documents will be shared with the mentor and other mentees in the group. While the format of the meeting is flexible and it can be decided by the mentor in accordance with the mentees, we suggest allocating at least half an hour for each of the mentees. More details can be found here.
We are happy to have mentors of any nationality but please consider that the mentoring will be aimed at early career researchers working in UK academia, so some familiarity with UK academic career pathways is preferable.
