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

Student members of the society are also kept up to date with upcoming events and opportunities in the form of  weekly/biweekly emails.

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
