The CTSS is pleased to announce that we are piloting a mentoring program for young scientists. If successful, we aim to offer this program annually. During this six-month mentoring program, we will match professionals working in the field of Computational Toxicology with younger scientists, such as students and postdoctoral trainees, to support professional development of the mentees. Both mentors and mentees will commit to meeting for 1 hour, at least four times during the entirety of the program. The mentee is encouraged to consider in advance what topics they would be most interested in discussing.
The goal of this program is to generate awareness of the various career paths in this very diverse field, both in terms of scientific background and in terms of possible future career opportunities. Additionally, it is our intention to provide networking opportunities and practical support for junior scientists in how to successfully navigate their professional development.
When: April 2022 to September 30, 2022
Registration will close February 28, 2022.
Where: Meetings will be held virtually using platform of choice and will be scheduled by the mentees based on their/mentor’s availability. The CTSS is considering organizing a kick-off meeting at the Annual SOT Meeting in San Diego 2022, depending on the pandemic situation at the time. Attendance is not a requirement for participation in the mentorship program.
Sign-up: October 15, 2021, to February 28, 2022.
