Join the EANO Youngsters!
The EANO Youngster Initiative targets young clinicians and scientists at the beginning of their career development. The EANO Youngster Initiative should provide a platform for exchange and networking and thereby support the interaction and career development. Here, several issues at the beginning of a clinical/scientific career should be addressed including conduction of first own clinical trials, basic science models in neuro-oncology and career planning. The target group includes people until an approximate age of 35 years.
After the successful start of the Young EANO Networking Event in Mannheim the initiative will be continued in Zürich. So join us!
When: May 5th 2017, 8pm,
Venue: Drinxbar Zürich
Further, we initiated a Facebook group “EANO Youngsters” to get in touch with other young scientists. If you are an EANO member you are free to join, just send your request via Facebook and write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Two new research jobs online!
- Senior Research Fellow Paediatric Neuro-oncology, UK
- Postdoctoral Fellow in Cancer research, Luxemburg

For the upcoming 2 years, main topics will be a strategic development of EANO with a vision for the next 10 years, implementing structures to attract young members, intensify collaboration with the EORTC and further develop our mission in neuro-oncology education.
With kind regards and best wishes for 2017
