The Individual Merit Promotion (IMP) mentoring scheme aims to enable current IMP scientists to encourage and support people who are thinking about going for IMP in the next few years as well as those who consider it to be within their future career path.

How to find a mentor

The IMP mentors are volunteers from within the IMP network. The mentors will have achieved either IMP ‘band 2’ or ‘band 3’ status. We have a variety of people from different scientific fields and from each of the participating organisations. Personal profiles of each mentor are available below. Mentors should be contacted directly.

If a mentor cannot take on any more mentees, they will be removed temporarily from this list.

Unlike other internal mentoring schemes, matching of mentors and mentees are not done centrally.
