WISER program

The WISER mentoring program allows each postdoc to choose her own mentor. Mentors receive relevant information about the mentee, such as career goals, challenges, and areas she seeks to improve with the assistance of the mentor. The matched mentor-mentee couple decide on a suitable timeframe for e-meetings (e.g. a one-hour meeting once a month). Once every few months, the WISER team surveys the mentors and mentees about the process, to see if common themes and needs are emerging from multiple mentor-mentee pairs.
