Europlanet launches Early Careers Training and Education Portal and Mentoring Services
Europlanet has launched a suite of new services to support early career professionals in the planetary community:
Early Careers Training and Education Portal
The Early Careers Training and Education Portal provides information on PhD positions, job opportunities, summer schools, and meetings relevant to early career professionals working in planetary science and related fields.
Please send any information on PhD positions, job opportunities, summer schools, and meetings relevant to early career professionals working in planetary science and related fields to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Europlanet Mentorship Platform
The Europlanet Mentorship Platform aims to help early career scientists to develop expertise, ask questions and discuss career plans with the support of more established members of the planetary community.
We are actively recruiting now! It is important for us to understand the need in the community for the Europlanet Mentoring Platform, so we encourage you to sign up now and let us know whether you would be interested in becoming a Mentor or Mentee.
The Europlanet Mentoring Platform will start with a pilot programme from September – December 2020, with a full service launched in January 2021.
Mentoring@EPSC aims to provides support for early career scientists in navigating the Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC) 2020 virtual meeting.
Although virtual events offer a lot of advantages, one major disadvantage they have is that it is difficult to get to know other people, particularly those in a more advanced stage of their career. Mentoring@EPSC will fill this gap by enabling one-to-one meetings between novice conference attendees and postdocs and experienced researchers.
If this is your first international conference or you are unsure about how to attend such an event virtually, join us as an EPSC Mentee here. If you are an experienced researcher and would be willing to support an early career professional and share some of your tips and knowledge, please join us as an EPSC Mentor here. The registered Mentors and Mentees will be able to meet via online meetings, organized at their own convenience, during the conference weeks.
The deadline to sign-up to the Mentoring@EPSC program is September 4, 2020.
The Early Careers Training and Education Portal and Europlanet Mentorship Platform are run by Vilnius University as part of the Europlanet 2024 Research Infrastructure, in collaboration with the Europlanet Society and Europlanet Early Career (EPEC) network.
Mentoring@EPSC is run by the EPEC-EPSC Working Group.
