Mentoring

Mentors

The following APSAD members comprising of mid and senior career researchers have signed-up to join our informal network and have kindly offered to share their experiences and insights with Early Career Researchers and PhD students. Mentoring can be as formal or informal as the mentor and mentee desire. Just by having a sounding board when questions arise; a friendly ear to talk to about career options can be invaluable to ECRs starting out in their careers.
