A typical mentor/mentee pairing would be a faculty member or professional in industry mentoring a graduate student or postdoc, or a senior faculty or industry researcher mentoring a junior faculty or researcher. We would strongly encourage mentees to become also mentors currently or in the future. A mentor/mentee relationship will be a priori a two year one. Our idea is that a mentor will agree to communicate with his/her mentee roughly a few times per year to provide professional advice and feedback, for example by helping the mentee with proposal writing or by introducing him to potential collaborators. The only requirement is that a mentor/mentee should be part of the IEEE IT Society for the duration of the mentoring period.
Anyone who is interested in joining the mentoring program (as a mentor/mentee or both) is invited to sign up at the following address:
Our next yearly mentor/mentee social event will take place on Tuesday,
July 3, 7-8pm during ISIT 2012 in Cambridge, MA. All active mentors/mentees and everybody interested in the program are more than welcome to attend.
