Career Spotlight Webinar Series
About once a month, we host a prominent Black scientist in brain and/or behavioral research. Speakers share their career journeys with our members and provide advice on navigating a research career. Members then get to network with the speakers in a small group discussion following the presentation and Q&A session. Some of our past speakers include Dr. Erich Jarvis and Dr. Jules Harrell.
In July of 2018, we had our first Member Match networking event for all of our registered dues-paying members. For each week of July, each of our participants was paired with another member of the Society, so that they can make new connections and network with other scholars! We have a wide-reaching community across the nation, and Member Match helps to bridge that gap and create beneficial relationships with between our members.
SB³S members have exclusive access to our scholarship portal, where they can search for funding sources like grant, fellowships, and scholarships. You can search by criteria such as application due date or name of award.
Expert Consultant Program
SB³S has a team of Expert Consultants that are here to help our members, giving them consultation and advice on a variety of topics. Members can set up appointments to get help on grant writing, job applications, budgeting and saving, managing and forming nonprofits, and career development.
Both of these programs are free to our dues-paying members!
Each Tuesday, our General Interest members receive an email from our Community Outreach Chair, Eboni, educating them about science and teaching them about topics related to the brain and how we behave!
