AdvanceMent Freiburg

Welcome to AdvanceMent Freiburg, the mentoring program for doctoral candidates and postdocs at the University of Freiburg!

We support young researchers in their personal and professional development and career planning. We create opportunities for professional orientation and to help participants successfully navigate their next career steps through reflection, feedback, networking, mutual support and further qualification.

Mentoring is a tried-and-tested instrument in many areas of the working world for accompanying the next generation of promising professionals on their career path through structured and individual support.
