InPharma Mentoring Program in partnership with DGPharMed and Max Planck Alumni Association (MPAA)


One of the biggest challenges faced by PhD students and Postdocs planning to leave academia is developing a successful strategy to do so. A successful strategy requires among other things knowledge of a professional world difficult to access for the majority of PhD students and Postdocs. InPharma platform plans to contribute for the solution of this problem by developing a mentoring program for young scientists planning to leave academia. We are working together with DGPharMed and Max Planck Alumni Association to recruit highly qualified professionals to be your mentor.
