What is the ACE mentorship scheme about?

The scheme offers early career researchers the opportunity to be paired with colleagues who are currently working in the Scottish Government. You may be interested in knowing how your research relates to current policy or you may be interested in exploring whether you might like to employ your skills to work more directly in government in the future.

Who is this scheme for?

Centre members who are early career researchers who aim to stay in academia but would like to align their work closely with policy initiatives or ECRs who might like to move across to use their skills working directly in government.

How do I find out more?
