Call for participants in YRNCS Commissions (Closed)

YRNCS invites young researchers to take an active part in the Network by engaging in one of the commissions:

  1. Online community commission: We are seeking help from people keen on social networks willing to help rebuilding channels of our online communications either by adding new outlets, or adjusting and reviving existing ones.

  2. Fundraising commission: With the growth of the community and our spread around the world, organising any sort of offline event to gather us requires huge amounts of money. As we believe initiatives such as bridge grants, CCS fee waivers and workshops should happen regularly, we ask you to help us make them financially sustainable.

These calls are open to Master/PhD students or PostDocs within their fourth year from the PhD.
To get involved, drop us an email at with your information/interests and answer to the question: Which commission you would like to join and how are you planning to help it?

Applications are open until the 30th of April.
