By In The Profession Comments Off on Job Candidate Mentoring Program for Women

Job Candidate Mentoring Program for Women

The Job Candidate Mentoring Program for Women in Philosophy is currently recruiting both mentors and mentees for the upcoming job market season. The program matches eligible job candidates with a junior faculty mentor. 

Please note that the name for this program is somewhat misleading. The current policy is that you are eligible to sign up as either a mentor or mentee if at least one of the following applies to you:

-Assigned female at birth
-Identifies as a woman
-Does not identify as either a woman or a man

The program, started in 2014, is run entirely by volunteers.

Mentors should currently hold a permanent academic post and have had job market experience at the junior level in the past seven years. The application deadline for mentees is Sept 8th. Preference will be given to job candidates who have not participated in this mentoring program before.

Other job candidates seeking mentorship are encouraged to participate in the Cocoon Mentoring Project.
