FEMIE is the coaching and mentoring programme for our female PhD students to plan their long-term scientific careers - not only during the time they pursue their PhD projects, but by addressing a long-term perspective in science.
In the beginning of 2021, we hired a professional female personal coach, who will accompany the PhD students throughout these steps.
In individually scheduled one-to-one coaching sessions, PhD students can elaborate their specific topics, milestones and goals with the coach. Each PhD student can participate in several coaching sessions per year, depending on the current life situation or project phase. Feedback interviews on the FEMIE programme will take place annually to further adapt and improve FEMIE to the needs of young scientists.
