Call for Returning Mentors

The call for returning mentors is open!

We invite past students of the IHPCSS to apply to be mentors at the 2019 Summer School in Kobe, Japan. Your Summer School, academic, and non-academic experiences and perspective would be very valuable in helping this year’s students make meaningful connections and get the most out of the Summer School. As a returning mentor you will be expected to provide insight based on your experiences since you attended the Summer School, and to provide mentoring on a range of subjects such as finishing your dissertation/thesis, getting a job or moving between countries. In addition to mentorship, your responsibilities will include giving a brief talk about your work and career, running the poster sessions and assisting students during hands-on sessions.

We are looking for returnees who are currently affiliated with a U.S. or European organisation. Preference will be given to applicants who have not served as returning mentors before, and to applicants who have had a change in career stage (grads that are now post-docs or have a professional position, post-docs who are now faculty or have a professional position, etc.) since they attended the Summer School. You will be expected to attend the entire Summer School, Sunday evening thru Friday afternoon. Travel, lodging, and food expenses will be paid by the Summer School. If you’re interested in serving as a mentor, please follow the link below to complete your application. Applications are due at midnight AOE on April 15. Selected applicants will be informed by the middle of May.

If you have any questions, please contact Scott Callaghan at or Weronika Filinger at
