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

  • It's flexible! Our base expectation is two to three hours a week, but you're more than welcome to get involved with more activities.

  • We expect that volunteers contribute for a minimum of six 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.

  • Simply Neuroscience volunteers have organized meetups in the past to connect with one another in-person! The most recent meet-ups took place in New York City, USA, and Haryana, India. We will likely be organizing a summer 2024 meetup in the San Francisco Bay Area, California.

  • What is your policy on AI usage (e.g. ChatGPT, Gemini) in application responses?

  • Copy-pasting directly from ChatGPT, Gemini, or other AI platforms in your application or communications with the team is NOT permitted, and we will automatically reject your application. Checking grammar through platforms such as Grammarly is perfectly okay.

  • We want to hear your voice and get to know more about you -- not ChatGPT!

  • 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.

  • Are there any open leadership positions?

  • We usually do not open leadership positions for external applications. In rare cases, we will share an open leadership position call on social media.

  • However, all onboarded volunteers are welcome to apply for leadership opportunities when there are openings.

  • 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.

  • I'm a neuroscience enthusiast above 30 years of age and am looking for volunteer opportunities.

  • 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

  • If you are searching for a guest speaker with a certain background or area of expertise, consider looking through the bios of our leadership team members on the "About Us" page.

  • I have a question that is not answered here.

  • Email us at info@simplyneuroscience.org
