Matching students with experienced professionals to foster personal and professional development in an informal setting

 

The Synapse Mentorship Program

 

The program runs from October 2018 - June 2019 where you and your assigned mentor will meet 4-6 times and work on several topics according to both of your schedules. Intertwined your meetings, Synapse will organize three events spaced out throughout the cycle.

If you join our program, you can tailor it to your needs. You can either focus on your personal development, or perhaps on your professional growth. Whatever you decide to work on, it will be together with a mentor with a life science background like yours. They will challenge your perspectives, guide your decisions and let you tap into their experience and knowledge in an informal and safe environment.

 

Mentorship Program Timeline


 

 

The matching process

 

You will apply the mentorship program with a short motivational letter answering the two questions found in the section “how to apply” and your CV.

Furthermore, you will have to choose a number of words that describe you and your interest within life science the best. We have already produced a list of words to choose from – which will be evident in the application form. As we only have a limited amount of mentors we will not be able to match all our applicants.

Remember that our Synapse Mentorship Program is not a way into the companies that our mentors represent.

For more information about each mentor go to the bottom of this site.

 

Who can apply 

 

You are eligible to enter the program if:

  • You are a 3rd-year Bachelor student or have at least 1 year left in your master’s program and you’re not going on exchange during the mentorship program.

  • You are enrolled in a life science program at a university in the Copenhagen area (Lund University included).

  • You are available for the kick-off event. The event will be held in Copenhagen.

How to apply

 

When applying we kindly ask for your CV (maximum 2 pages) and a motivational letter where you answer the following two questions (max. 300 words per question):

  1. What is your motivation to become a mentee in the Synapse Mentorship Program and what do you hope to gain from it?
  2. What are your current educational/career plans and how do you believe a mentor could help you achieve your specific goals?

In the application form you also need to pick 10 words that you find the most interesting. We will use these words to find the best match for you.
