Early career researchers

Neuroscience network

A new web site for early career researchers working at the University of Southampton provides information about resources and support and how to access them:

In January 2009 SoNG launched an Early Career neuroscientist researcher network.

Although the focus is neuroscience, many of the activities of the group are generic and are open to all early career scientists in the University.

This group has been established in recognition of the fundamental importance of postdoctoral fellows and postgraduates in delivering research, often driving forward and implementing innovation within the University. Therefore the network will seek to recognise the current expertise and the potential of our early career scientists; through collaboration across the university it will aim to enthuse and inspire development; and by doing this maximise the individual and collective impact of the group on research and enterprise in the University.
