Julia Muschallik (2013): Mentoring in the Creation of Human and Social Capital: Effects on Time to Tenure. Tübingen. Available at GEABA: Discussion Paper No. 13-25.

In this paper I analyze the development of mentees’ human and social capital created during academic mentoring relationships and how this might increase mentees’ likelihood of receiving tenure. The empirical study is based on an original dataset of more than 80 researchers in economics and business administration from Austria, Germany and the German-speaking part of Switzerland. Because the underlying dataset contains information on researchers who experience the event ‘receiving tenure’ and on postdocs who did not experience the event so far, Cox proportional hazard regressions (Cox 1972) were used. I find that mentors who sponsor their mentees into the scientific network and thereby increase mentees’ social capital are positively related to mentees’ likelihood of getting tenure in the next given time period. Mentees who acquire more job-related skills from their mentor and thereby increase their human capital are not more likely to receive tenure. Only when in combination with mentors’ role as gatekeeper, do job-related skills have positive effects on time to tenure. Working together on joint projects decreases mentees’ likelihood of receiving tenure.
