Students and New Researchers Network (SNRN)

The SNRN aims to create a global network of students and new researchers that:

  • Promotes career development,
  • Encourages researchers at the early stages of their careers by sharing ideas, issues, and opportunities in the field of environmental epidemiology,
  • Organizes an abstract mentoring program for students and new researchers who want to attend the annual conferences;
  • Sponsors and organizes career workshops (early morning sessions at annual conferences and webinars);
  • Distributes information to the SNRN through social media (e-Newsletter, website, Twitter and LinkedIN);
  • Organizes events at the annual meeting that brings students and new researchers together and helps them network with more senior members; and
  • Sponsors awards for best abstract and poster at annual conferences to honor good research of students and new researchers.

The SNRN is open to all students, post-doctoral trainees, and new researchers (who have fewer than 5 years of experience from their terminal degree) in the field of environmental epidemiology or other related disciplines. SNRN members come from all over the world.
