Careers in Neuroscience Symposium 2014 (CNS 2014) is a one-day workshop for early career researchers engaged in all aspects of neuroscience research that aims to promote networking and professional development through careers sessions and social events as well as the scientific talks and poster sessions. It will be held in NUI Galway, November 26th 2014 as a satellite meeting to the Network of European CNS transplantation and Restoration (NECTAR) conference.

 This workshop will consist of 3 sessions each consisting of 1-2 invited speakers and student oral presentations and a “meet the experts” session. There will be three main broad themes: Academia (research/lecturing; at home and abroad; funding sources); Industry; and Science communication(journal editors, outreach etc.). A number of distinguished scientists, including former Irish PhD and postdoctoral researchers, working in industry/academia are invited to present an overview of their career, the challenges involved and their current research interests. This promises to be an exciting scientific meeting attracting a large national gathering of PhD students and early careers scientists.

This meeting will be held jointly with NUI Galway and UCC in conjunction with Neuroscience Ireland. This workshop will be a wonderful opportunity to foster the education and development of neuroscientists, particularly of PhD students and early career researchers.

Abstracts are invited from students and early career scientists and submission will open August 4th. An advertising poster can be downloaded here.
