Project Synapse is a new postdoctoral group sponsored by the UCLA Brain Research Institute that provides a strong network of collegues, career development workshops, and opportunities to participate in K-12 outreach and teaching activities. Project Synapse members participate in ongoing visits to local Los Angeles K-12 schools to teach and inspire interest in Neuroscience, higher education, and STEM careers. Monthly career development workshops include topices such as presentation and communication skills, time management, curriculum vitae tips, grant writing, leadership skills and more.
