Scientists at the University of Tübingen study the differential distribution of photoreceptors in the retina of mice
The Board for the Advancement of Women (BAW) promotes female scientists at every level of their professional career. The board is formed by scientists participating in the CIN and involving representatives of all academic levels, including the student body. The BAW cooperates closely with the Office for Gender Equality at the University of Tübingen and the Graduate Training Centre of the CIN.
The BAW develops and implements gender-neutral criteria for scientific excellence, participates in the appointment committees for positions in the CIN and contributes to establishing a family friendly environment at the University. The BAW will support young women throughout their scientific career, from high school to all levels at the university, by fostering active networks of women in science (role modelling, peer mentoring) and by offering specific courses aimed at key qualifications such as communication and leadership skills.

METIS Program (Mentoring & Training in Science) organised by the BAW Board for the Advancement of Women
Mentoring and training are key aspects of career development for personal and scientific progress. Taking the next step in a research career is often determined by two factors: scientific excellence and the support of a network. Along these lines the METIS program is geared towards supporting the careers of female scientists by:
1) helping them to acquire skills in order to achieve high-ranking positions;
2) strengthening networking amongst researchers.
Each participant in the program is supported by two mentors (one male and one female senior scientist). The program will train scientists in key competences such as: leadership; scientific and public communication; work-life balance etc. The CIN encourages female scientists at all career levels to participate in the program.
METIS is scheduled to start in the first week of October 2013. Please contact email@example.com for further information.
