Providing guidance and career development support to ESPR young investigators
The European Society for Paediatric Research (ESPR) has launched the third round of its Young Investigator Mentoring Programme (YIMP). Tailored towards early-career investigators conducting child health research, the YIMP provides the opportunity to receive career development support from renowned international experts in the field of Paediatrics and work together on a research project over the course of two years. We would like to encourage both mentors and mentees to apply.
The ESPR currently does not accept applications for the mentoring programme. New opportunities to join the YIMP will become available in early 2022.
Are you interested to participate as a mentee? Then we would like to encourage you to apply by submitting:
a one-page letter of motivation.
a one-page curriculum vitae including: - personal details; - location of training in Paediatrics and dates; - years of clinical experience; - involvement in clinical/research projects; - list of publications.
a Letter of Support (LoS) from the Division Head or Department Chair explaining what the applicant lacks in his/her environment and how the external mentoring provided by this programme would be beneficial.
