Prior to enrolment, candidates are required to choose a mentor and submit upon enrolment at the latest the mentor’s written acceptance of mentorship. The doctoral dissertation mentor or co-mentor is a university teacher (assistant professor, associate professor, full professor) or researcher (research associate, senior researcher or higher research associate) with a relevant scientific bibliography in the field of the doctoral dissertation topic.
The mentor’s role is to guide the student and to provide conditions for work. The mentor must ensure that appropriate research capacities and research infrastructure are available. A foreign expert with a title comparable to a Slovenian title can be a mentor.
