UW Neurobiology Club Recruiting Mentors for Fall 2020

UW Neurobiology Club is currently recruiting mentors and mentees for the upcoming quarter! We are a multidisciplinary student group that aims to encourage interest in the field of neuroscience for students and the greater community, while bringing together those with a like interest in the field. If you are interested in learning how to get into the Neuroscience or Biology major, or interested in mentoring others on how to do so, please apply for a UW Neurobiology Club mentor or mentee position using the forms below by Friday, October 9th. If you are a returning mentee or mentor, you must fill out the form again. Mentor pairings are meant to give students interested in careers in neuroscience or biology an opportunity to learn from your peers and upperclassmen, and foster a close friendship that encourages mutual learning and success. Mentor pairs commit to personal meetups ideally around twice a month, getting to know each other through casual social activities in addition to Neurobiology Club-organized events.

We are looking for reliable mentors, preferably sophomores, juniors, or seniors, who can ideally commit at least 4-5 hours per month! Mentors do not have to already be in their major! This a great way to gain leadership and mentorship experience; you will work with students/mentees, either one-on-one or in group settings, to serve as a guide on their UW journey and introduce aspiring Neuroscience or Biology majors to campus resources or academic services in order to help them get into their major.

Our expectations of mentors will be to:
– Actively participate in mentorship and commit 1-2 hrs per week

– Reach out to and build a relationship with assigned mentee

– Attend an one-time mandatory virtual orientation in October, date TBD

– Attend at least 1 social or mixer event a quarter

– Be willing to share your own experience and UW journey, campus resources, and academic opportunities
