Our Fellows benefit from a personalized mentoring program, providing professional development support from experienced and internationally-accomplished scientists. The mentoring equips Fellows to maximize the opportunity of their placement, to build their networks, and to plan their future career paths. Mentoring and scientific guidance on specific and specialized topics are arranged for Fellows’ unique professional development needs.

Mentoring is delivered by our Academic Council members, each of whom are highly experienced scientists with extensive track records in institutional leadership, management, and team development. Each Schmidt Science Fellow will have a nominated mentor but also has access to our Chair of Academic Council, Professor Sir Keith Burnett. Upon completion of the Schmidt Science Fellowship our alumni, or Senior Fellows, continue to have access to these mentoring services upon request.
