We now have our own LinkedIn group open to all student members of the society:

The aim of the group is to promote communication between student members and provide useful information about oncoming conferences, workshops, funding opportunities, jobs and post-doc positions.

You can also use the following dedicated Twitter hashtag for posting any student communications or relevant opportunities: #DSBstu

There is also an established email list for students. The list will enable students to make contact with their compatriots and to share information and ideas. If you would like to be added to the list, please email

Recently, we added a new section called “Life after PhD” where members of the society share their personal experiences about this important transition in a researcher’s life. If you would like to contribute please email Paris Stefanoudis, the society’s student representative, at

Students – what else you like to see on this website? Please email your thoughts and suggestions to or tweet us at @DSBSoc
