Welcome to kite-mentoring, your personal network in natural and life sciences


kite-mentoring is a mentoring and career development program for women in natural and life sciences in their doctoral and postdoctoral phase at the University of Freiburg. Female scientists from the faculties of mathematics and physics, chemistry and pharmacy, engineering, biology, environment and natural resources and members of our funding partners form a network for projects, exchange, training and sustainable support.

The program promotes strategic academic and non-academic career development, personal development and networking in a wide range of professions and numerous companies we cooperate with.

You can apply at any time without a registration deadline and remain part of the kite network as Alumna to benefit, to be part of the kite-network and to support current mentees. The program offer is free of charge for participants as long as you have or have had an affiliation with one of our supporters.

Together we will decide whether and when a mentoring tandem is suitable for you and what support you need in your career phase.

The kite-mentoring program is composed of four pillars: mentoring, training, networking, and coaching, however, not all mentees have to necessarily attend events of all four pillars.
