Mentorship of PhD students

PhD students benefit from the supervision of a thesis committee, in addition to their research supervisor. The CIG has also organized a support program, in which each PhD student selects a second member of the CIG Faculty as an academic mentor. This mentor provides support and advice during the PhD studies, and can act as a reference later. In principle, the academic mentor works on a different topic than the one the PhD student is working on, as this should help to provide different points of view and broaden horizons and connections.
