Do you want to build your writing skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)?

Do you want to become a communications expert or journalist in STEM?

Are you interested in brain development and the application of a big-data approach to brain research (neuroinformatics), specifically mental illnesses and neurodegenerative disease?

Do you want your CV to demonstrate hands-on-experience in any of the following:

  • Website management, including content development.
  • Writing and publishing articles that help translate and communicate the latest scientific findings to the general population.
  • Social media planning and content production: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube.

The Ludmer Centre for Neuroinformatics & Mental Health is looking for dynamic volunteers in STEM, communications and/or journalism. No experience required!

The Ludmer Centre is a transdisciplinary, multi-centre research collaboration advancing a big-data approach to innovative research in normal brain development and disorders – research encompassing neurological disorders, from Alzheimer’s to Parkinson’s, and mental illnesses, from anxiety disorders to schizophrenia.

Mentorship credentials:  In addition to 20 years of experience working in the non-profit sector, nationally and internationally, the centre’s Administrative Director helped developed an international media service dedicated to humanitarian issues: the IRIN News service. Ms Clark (LinkedIn) can provide you with journalistic guidance, a chance to develop your writing talents and creative ideas, and a public space to try them out.
