Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • What are the steps to becoming a volunteer?

  • Please fill out the application above with thorough details about your interest. Then, our HR team will review your responses and reach out with an interview invitation. If the interview goes well, we will walk you through onboarding procedures and welcome you to the team!

  • Do you offer paid internships?

  • Unfortunately, we do not offer paid positions at the moment but hope to do so in the future!

  • Some universities provide stipends for students planning to work on unpaid opportunities with non-profit organizations. If a similar program exists at your university and you would be interested in pursuing Simply Neuroscience opportunities through this avenue, please reach out at info@simplyneuroscience.org and we can discuss more on a case-by-case basis.

  • What is the time commitment to volunteer with Simply Neuroscience?

  • It's flexible! Our base expectation is two to four hours a week per team you are involved with. We expect that volunteers contribute for a minimum of three months.

  • Does Simply Neuroscience offer memberships?

  • We do not offer formal "membership" as all of our resources, opportunities, events, and more are freely available online. However, we welcome all brain enthusiasts to join our informal Simply Neuroscience "family"!

  • Does volunteering take place virtually or in-person?

  • All of our programming and volunteering takes place virtually in accordance with COVID-19 safety guidelines as well as promoting greater accessibility internationally. If you are interested in contributing to hybrid or in-person outreach efforts (especially within your local university or community), check out our Campus Brain Ambassador Network above!

  • Our team is 350 volunteers strong (including our Campus Brain Ambassadors) and growing every day!

  • What is the background of current volunteers?

  • The majority of our volunteers are 13 to 30 years old and include middle school, high school, undergraduate, and graduate students as well as early-career professionals.

  • Thank you for your interest! Please consider volunteering as an Advisor through our virtual mentorship initiative (the "Action Potential Advising Program") or sharing your expertise through a guest speaker event (email us at events@simplyneuroscience.org).

  • Unfortunately, as we are primarily a student-serving organization, we are unable to accommodate volunteers above 30 years old. Please consider reaching out to organizations such as the Society for Neuroscience, ALBA Network, Human Brain Project, Alzheimer's Association, National Alliance on Mental Illness, etc. about other volunteering opportunities.

  • I'm organizing an event and would like to invite a member of the Simply Neuroscience team to join as a guest speaker and/or panelist. How can I connect with you?

  • Please send us an email at info@simplyneuroscience.org with further details
