The Network of European Neuroscience Schools (NENS) —which is part of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS)— is organizing the program of activities Building your career program during the FENS Forum in Barcelona, geared towards companies and research centers from the BioRegion of Catalonia interested in meeting young researchers that are highly qualified as possible candidates to join their team.

Both companies and research centers will have the opportunity to submit available openings and carry out interviews with graduate students and post-doctorate researchers from around Europe attending the congress and, for vacancies that require a specific profile, they will be able to receive curriculum vitae for candidates and schedule interviews beforehand.

The biannual FENS congress is the most important scientific event in the field of neuroscience and brings together top specialists in this field, plus some 7,000 participants. The Federation of European Neuroscience Societies has chosen Barcelona for the eighth edition of this event, which will be held from 14 to 18 July 2012, coinciding with the Year of Neuroscience in Spain.
