The Office of Academic Training and Outreach Programs (ATOP) will once again be offering our new mentorship initiative, the CHOP Career Mentoring Program, for current postdoctoral fellows beginning in October 2022.

ATOP seeks CHOP faculty and postdoc alumni to participate as mentors in this program. Secondary mentorship enriches the postdoc experience by providing a more well-rounded support team to ensure career success. As a program mentor, you will support your assigned fellow with their career advancement; you are not intended to serve as a mentor to the fellow’s research program.

More information about the CHOP Career Mentoring Program:

  • Advance and promote a culture of mentoring at CHOP
  • Provide CHOP postdocs an opportunity to develop a career mentoring relationship with CHOP postdoc alumni from various career paths or faculty beyond their own department or division
  • Each mentor will be paired with one mentee based on their career area of interest and mentorship needs
  • Program will run from October 2022 to June 2023 (view program timeline)
  • Mentoring pairs will meet at least once per month in-person or virtually (10-12 hours total over a 9-month period
  • The program application will open to postdocs in Summer 2022.

If you are interested in serving as a mentor, please contact Colleen Ambron at [email protected] by Friday, June 17.
