EMAS Junior Mentorship Program

Following the success in previous years, EMAS is delighted to announce the third round of the Junior Mentorship Program (JuMP) for the period 2019 – 2021. The main aim of JuMP is to encourage career development of junior clinicians and researchers in the field of post-reproductive health.  One expert mentor will be paired with a mentee for 18 months,based on mutual research interests.

The role of the mentor is to provide guidance on how to write a protocol and abstract, how to present at conferences and how to write a paper as well as clinical case solving. The outcomes are a research project, disseminated as a poster or oral presentation at the 2021 EMAS congress, and submission of a research paper to a peer-reviewed journal. As mentor – mentee pairs may not come from the same country, communication will be preferably online (e-mail, Skype, etc) and in English.

You can apply if you are:

Below the age of 35 years or still in training
A paid-up EMAS member
Interested in research in the field of post-reproductive health

Keen to liaison with and learn from a scientific expert with international reputation

Mentees of the period 2017 – 2019, who want to extend the collaboration with their mentor, have to reapply. If you are not an EMAS member, join and be eligible to be a mentee. Annual membership fee is only 25 euros for junior members (< 35) and doctors in training.

The deadline for mentee applications is Monday, October 28th 2019. You can download the application form here: Application form JuMP 2019 – 2021. Following evaluation by the JuMP committee, selected mentees will be paired with mentors. JuMP is planned to start on Monday, November 18th 2019.

We hope you will take the opportunity to participate in this exciting initiative.

EMAS travel award

EMAS will support the travel costs for junior members who wish to attend international meetings and congresses; or, for example, those who wish to visit laboratories for specific short-term activities, such as collaborative research, or in order to learn new techniques. This is subject to them meeting the assessment criteria for these awards. Applications are considered twice a year. The deadlines are 31 December and 30 June 12pm CET.  The maximum award is 1,000 EUR for economy travel.

Please note that travel must be completed within 1 year of the award date. Successful applicants are required to submit a report to EMAS within 6 months of completion of the project and present their findings/ data at the next EMAS congress.

How to apply

Email a completed application form, CV and letters of support from: 1] the member’s head of department and/or 2] the host institution to info@emas-online.org for consideration by the EMAS board. A full justification for the sum requested must accompany the application.

Multiple applications from the same institution are permitted but applicants should note that multiple applications should be based on separate, distinct projects, none of which is dependent upon approval of the other.
