Doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty in communication sciences and disorders are invited to enroll in ASHA’s Mentoring Academic-Research Careers (MARC) program.
This online mentoring program matches protégés and mentors based on common academic and professional goals. The MARC enrollment period for protégés and mentors is Aug. 2–Sept. 7.
Protégés are matched with more experienced mentors for nine months of mentoring on topics related to academic careers, such as completing a dissertation, negotiating a start-up package, managing a research lab, writing grants and journal submissions, and exploring different teaching strategies.
The mentor may also provide encouragement and support for related topics, such as forging work-life balance, choosing or changing career paths, and identifying research and award programs.
Most mentors and protégés begin their communication via email, but may also schedule regular telephone or Skype conversations. ASHA’s online MARC Community is another source for sharing information, finding resources, and gaining feedback. Some mentoring pairs have arranged meet-ups at the ASHA Convention and other conferences.
The program is always looking for new mentors. MARC mentors must have a research doctorate and be junior, senior, or emeritus faculty, or chair or director of research programs. Some of the program’s most effective mentors were—or are—MARC protégés: Many of the program’s junior faculty participants mentor PhD students, while simultaneously receiving guidance from senior faculty mentors.
