CliSAP successfully finished in 2018. Climate research continues in the Cluster of Excellence "CLICCS".

How can I join?


If you wish to participate as a CliSAP postdoc within COM, you are asked to contact CliSAP's Equal Opportunity Officer. You will receive a list of potential mentors and will be asked to choose 3 (1 favourite, 2 alternative) possible mentors within 4 weeks after receiving the list.

The mentor must come from a different institute and should not be a close collaborator of your advisor. The CliSAP Office will then inform the mentor about the mentee. If there are no further objections, both mentor and mentee will be contacted and asked to meet within the following month. The procedure of finding the mentor/mentee couple should not last longer than 2 months. External mentors are allowed but in this case the mentee must establish the contact and has to take care of the meetings.


If you agree to participate as a mentor within the CliSAP postdoc mentoring program COM, please contact CliSAP's Equal Opportunity Officer and write 2 sentences about your motivation to participate in COM.

If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact also the other members of the COM committee Inga Hense, Lars Kutzbach or Anke Allner. We are looking forward to your response and we hope for strong participation of CliSAP PIs in COM. We would like to emphasize that mentoring can offer benefits for both the mentees and the mentors.
