MNS2023 - CALL FOR CONTRIBUTED SYMPOSIA
The 9th Mediterranean Neuroscience conference that will be held in Carthage (Tunisia, 14-18 October 2023) is now accepting submissions for proposed symposia. A typical symposium gathers 4-5 speakers, each addressing the general topic from a different perspective. The total allocated time is 2 hours per proposed symposium (linked symposia could be proposed, but their joint acceptance is not guaranteed, given our aim to increase thematic diversity). Symposia dealing with all areas of neuroscience research are warmly invited, including, biomedical, clinical, genetics, imaging, computational history and teaching neuroscience.

The confirmed keynote lectures will be:

keynote-lectures

The requirement to submit a proposal is active MNS membership for the current year (2022)

First register at HERE and create your MNS member profile. Choose PAY ANNUAL MEMBER FEE in your personal panel

The MNS strives to strengthen exchanges between Mediterranean neuroscientists, promote education in the neurosciences and increase public awareness of progress made. The participation of scientists from the South countries, whether as organizers of symposia or as speakers, is, therefore, highly encouraged. The gender ratio, and the geographical distribution in order to promote a diversity of the attending members, within each proposal will also be taken into account to reach a decision.

Online submission for symposium proposals opens on November 14th, 2022 and ends 31st of December 2022. Submission Online at https://www.medneuroscisociety.org/



The MNS and its partners will provide a limited number of stipends for qualified early-career candidates (guidelines to be released soon). However, the symposium proponents are invited to seek funding for travel, accommodation and conference registration of the invited participants (MNS only offers logistic support at the meeting venue).
LAST ARTICLES
MNS highly supports young researchers and promotes their career development at any stage.
The Young MNS Committee (YMNSC) aims to bridge the gap between young members' needs and the MNS Council.
The YMNSC promotes participation in the scientific community of young neuroscientists in the Mediterranean area, with a particular emphasis on those working in low-income countries. It channels its own initiatives, organizes activities useful for students’ training and transition towards independence, and addresses the interests, needs, problems and concerns of young neuroscientists in the Mediterranean area.
The YMNSC channels information relative to Education in Neuroscience and MNS activities through our social media and newsletter.
YMNSC general mission is to strengthen the MNS young community and to enable young neuroscientists to discuss their views on the future of Neuroscience in the different Regions of the Mediterranean area.

The YMNS President will participate in the decision-making processes of the MNS Council by participating in their meetings, with a unique role of advising the MNS Council on issues of early career scientists and developing programs and activities that meet their needs.

Call

The call for self-nominations for Young MNSC members is open.

YMNSC is composed of neuroscientists (up to 2 for each Mediterranean Countries) with no permanent position such as Master's students, PhD students, Postdocs, Researchers, etc with no more than 10 years of experience since the completion of PhD.

Young MNS members interested in bringing vision, energy, and commitment to this new and important committee can self-nominate themselves by sending a letter of intent together with their CV, a letter/certificate from their Institution regarding their position and a recommendation letter by a senior Scholar at  president@medneuroscisociety.org. The deadline for self-nominations is Sunday, 31st December 2022 (midnight CEST).

A two-year postdoctoral position is available from December 2022, in the laboratory lead by Marianna Leonzino, at the Institute of Neuroscience of CNR (Italy).

The project is funded by the Cariplo and Telethon Alliance and aims at disclosing the molecular function of the VPD13D protein, whose mutations lead to a very severe form of Ataxia, aka SCAR4. Our approach combines CRISPR-based gene editing, with imaging, biochemistry, proteomics and functional studies on cell lines and iPSCs-derived neurons.

The laboratory resides at the Humanitas Neurocenter, in Rozzano a small town in the outskirt of Milano, where also Humanitas University and Humanitas Research Hospital are located. The presence of these three entities contributes to a dynamic and vibrant scientific environment and provides access to state-of-the art facilities.

Candidates must hold a PhD degree in a relevant field. A strong background in neuronal cell biology and experience with iPSCs, proteomics and confocal microscopy are highly appreciated. Image analysis and familiarity with bioinformatics are a plus. We look for an enthusiastic and dependable candidate, who is able to work in a team as well as independently.

Informal inquiries should be e-mailed to marianna.leonzino@in.cnr.it. Application should be submitted before the 14th November 2022 following instructions on the official call.
