There are many ways you can contribute to the Society. The list below is just a set of examples and is by no means exhaustive. We welcome any kind of activity – big or small! Just let us know what you’re doing so that we can celebrate it together!
Most of the engagements requires a free membership. Registration is free and quick, simply log in with your e-mail.
Find Another Member
- Work out who else is interested in what you want to do. A good place to start is finding the Advisory Board on your chosen subject and joining them. Our membership catalogue is also very useful.
- If you feel like there is nothing that you may be interested in, keep an open mind and join a random board or even start your own. You can do this by emailing the secretary general.
- Read around your subject, find work experience, book taster days, get engaged with your local NHS trust or research centre – all these are available through our members, who are all very happy to be approach.
- Oxford Neurosoc Online is a perfect tool to share your ideas. You can store your notes, spreadsheets or presentations on your 30GB drive, and work with your colleagues in a secure environment.
Find your Initiative
- Meetings are advertised by the Society or Advisory Boards. Apart from our Annual Conference, we organise many events – small or large, where we meet to discuss our work, share ideas, exchange thoughts and have fun. These are usually advertised by email. Join to be updated.
- Projects are carried out by our Members to achieve a certain goal. They include research and educational projects, popular knowledge initiatives or even expeditions!
Get Into Academia
- There are a lot of ways you can engage with academic work. Our Get Into Academia programme offers mentorship and educational opportunities for those keen on exploring clinical and scientific career pathways.
- Submit your blog post, news article, interview or presentation. We’ll be very happy to discuss your ideas and consider them for publication.
- Volunteer to speak at the event or conference, record your lectures and lessons and make them available on our platforms.
After gaining approval we will run an informal mentorship programme, in which we will aim to help students interested in all areas of clinical and basic neurosciences. We can assist them in career thinking, personal statement drafts, clinical and lab placements and work experience opportunities.
How to get started?
Email the secretary with your latest CV and a short statement of what you’re interested on and we’ll take it from there. There is no formal application process although specific opportunities may have to be applied for competitively. We’ll let you know when this happens.
