CINP is committed to encourage and promote international scientific study, teaching and application of neuropsychopharmacology. To do this successfully we need to nurture young scientists and clinicians embarking on a career in this field of study. To this end we are re-establishing a Mentoring Scheme; this will provide young neuropsychopharmacologists with an international mentor to provide guidance and support in their career.
Who is it for?
Early career scientists often have limited opportunity to connect with experienced neuropsychopharmacologists worldwide. Furthermore, many scientists in post-doctoral or clinical specialty training may not have access to formal support structures that are often available to graduate students.
The scheme is aimed at providing mentoring for these young scientists. Initially we shall focus on “mentees” from developing countries in South and East Asia, areas that are experiencing rapid growth in scientific and medical research but with limited international connections.
How to get a CINP mentor
Clinical and non-clinical scientists early in their careers, with interests in neuro- or psychopharmacology and who fit the criteria above can fill in an online application form. They will be matched with an established, senior CINP member from outside their home country and, if both mentor and mentee agree to the arrangement, will make a commitment to keep in regular contact for two years, or for as long as both want.
