The NHLI Mentoring Scheme is open to all staff (academic, research, professional and technical) and PhD students within the Institute. You might find mentoring a useful resource if you have specific issues you wish to discuss with someone. Examples of topics that could be covered in mentoring include – but are not limited to – career progression (e.g. progression from a postdoc to an independent researcher, or changing your career direction), balancing work and personal life, and going on or returning from parental leave.

NHLI is also keen to train up new mentors. We run regular mentor workshops together with the Departments of Medicine and Surgery & Cancer, and these workshops are aimed at anyone interested in becoming a mentor or improving their mentoring skills. Details for upcoming workshops can be found on the Faculty mentoring pages.

If you have any questions on mentoring or would like to request a mentor, please contact the NHLI Career Development Coordinator Dr Maija Maskuniitty (aino-maija.maskuniitty08@imperial.ac.uk).
