Do you want to make a difference? - Synapse is recruiting!
Synapse is a student-driven, non profit organisation with a vision to bridge the gap between academia and the life science industry. We want to ensure a more fluent transition from student to professional, and do so by organising a big range of monthly events and workshops for students. These events include our annual Life Science Summit, the BioBusiness Summer School, the mentorship programme, and much more.
We work together in a team of passionate Bachelor, Master, and PhD students from different universities to realise our events. By joining, you will be fully engaged in the organisational tasks from day one. We are looking for people with a positive energy who are willing to plan and execute our professional events in an exciting team setting: students who like volunteering and wish to improve the environment for their fellow students.
So, are you ready to take on this challenge with us, learn a lot about all aspects of the life science industry, and meet many new insipring people while doing so? Then do not hesitate, and apply right away!
What do we expect?
- You are a student at either B.Sc., M.Sc., or Ph.D. level, with at least a year left of your studies
- You emit positive energy and are willing to plan and execute our professional events in an exciting team setting
- You like volunteering and wish to improve the environment for their fellow students
- As we are a busy organisation, you should have the time to meet every Monday from 17.30-19.00, as the Monday meetings are where the magic happens
How do you apply?
Send us a motivational letter (PDF format, max 1 page) and CV (PDF format, max 2 pages). Application period is September 8th - October 4th. Interviews will be held between October 8th-11th (13th), depending on the amount of candidates applying.
In your application we encourage you to explain how you would bridge the gap between academia and the life science industry together with Synapse. Maybe you have already thought about new initiatives, or ideas to improve our existing events. Do you have organisational or volunteering experience, and if not; why do you think you could take up that responsibility? Think about all aspects that would make you a great new Synapsee!
