The Surveillance Studies Network is beginning its 2019 mentorship program for doctoral students engaged in research topics on surveillance. We are calling for faculty members and PhD students who are interested to participate this year as mentors and mentees, respectively.
One faculty member mentor will be paired with one PhD student mentee for a one-year period beginning in March 2019. As an informal mentorship arrangement, the program is intended as a supplement to students’ pre-existing mentorship relationships.
The time commitment is minimal, but the program greatly assists young surveillance scholars in conceptualizing their projects and networking with established scholars in the field.
Over the one-year period, each pair will have a minimum of two discussions, in person if possible (such as at a conference), or via phone or video chat. The focus of the discussions can be determined individually by each pair, but they might cover the mentee’s research or research interests, related literatures, the academic job market, or other matters relating to career.
If you are interested in participating, please email Julia Chan (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 25, 2019 with your name, contact information, and keywords of research interests. We will do our best to match faculty members and PhD students who share similar interests.
Note: It is expected that PhD students participating in the program will become SSN members, if they are not already.
We look forward to hearing from you!
