Amsterdam institute for Infection and Immunity and Cancer Center Amsterdam have created a mentoring program to connect researchers from all levels with more senior people. The ultimate goal of this program is to make sure everybody gets most out of their academic careers.

Fill in this small form if you want to connect with a mentor (and be a mentor yourself). We will provide some guidance, but it is up to the participants to decide exactly how to best shape their interaction to maximize benefits. Topics that could be discussed include:

-          How can I improve my CV?

-          How can I be more successful when applying for a grant?

-          What should I do to become “independent” as a postdoc?

-          Which steps should I take to make that next step in academia?

-          What does it take to get a Spinoza prize?
