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.
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.
