Example text

Question 8. Many need to understand that now a lot of graduates will move in what has been termed “alternative careers,” a very unfortunate term to define non-traditional or non-bench careers. What would you say about that? I think NIH was very clear about that in the recent Biomedical Workforce report, where they cited data that the majority of PhD graduates are not going to embark on a traditional academic research career. Therefore, the mentor needs to help trainees discover alternatives that fit the interests and skills of the particular individual and are promising career directions; the mentor and the mentee may not be aware of these options without some exploration.

In my career I have probably mentored around 100 undergraduates, and probably 15 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. I have mentored many more individuals informally. What Mentoring Is Not 31 Question 2. Do you mind elaborating on what you mean by “informally”? Informally, students have asked me to be on their thesis committee, and in the department I interacted with a variety of students, in many different disciplines. Now, here at NIH my primary responsibility is talking to fellows to guide them in finding their careers, although this is not the typical kind of mentoring in a research environment.

In either case, the hidden agenda is not likely to prove useful, and the value of that relationship will be close to zero. A RELATIONSHIP WITH TIME CONSTRAINTS A relationship limited by an artificial time frame does not predispose to the success of the goals pre-established by both parties. Mentoring is a relationship without time limitations. Its extent transcends the initial objective. In academia, mentoring relationships are typically limited by the length of the mentee’s stay at the University.
