Mentor and potential mentors


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 person with a university teacher title (assistant professor, associate professor, full professor) or researcher title (research associate, senior researcher or higher research associate) and has proof of research activity 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. When it comes to laboratory research, the mentor must ensure that appropriate research capacities and research infrastructure are available. A foreign expert with a title comparable to a Slovenian teaching or researcher title can be a mentor.
