Student/Postdoc Representative to the SNL Board of Directors

Student/Postdoc Representative to the SNL Board of Directors

This position is open to all student and postdoc members of the Society. The Student/Postdoc Representative will be responsible for attending all SNL board meetings, as well as the SNL business meeting. As a full voting member of the SNL Board, the Student/Postdoc Representative will have input into all aspects of Society discussions. This is a two-year term commencing at the Board of Directors meeting at SNL 2018 in Québec.

The position of Student/Postdoc Representative is particularly important, because the SNL Board is very interested in gaining the perspective of trainees in the field of the neurobiology of language. One of Society’s goals is to foster a robust membership and leadership base to assist in securing and advancing the profession into the future. To further this goal, the Student/Postdoc Representative will raise issues that are salient to students and postdocs, as well as participate in the development of active student programming, both academic and social.

At this time, we are seeking nominations for candidates. The Student/Postdoc Representative nominees will then be included on the the 2018 election ballot. Nominees must be a graduate student or postdoc through 2020. Nominees must also be an SNL member. With their consent, nominees may remain on the nominee list for three years. Nominations are open now and will continue through May 15, 2018 end of day. Self-nominations are welcome.

Nominations should be sent to [email protected] and include the following information:

  • Nominee’s name and email address
  • A short paragraph describing the qualifications of the nominee
  • Nominee’s current CV
