In an attempt to ease the pre-summer link verbiage, we’ve now adopted new functionality that changes how we promote relevant and interesting links. Instead of putting them into various forms of individual or combined posts, the most relevant sources have been collected in two fields in the sidebar to the right of the main text (or underneath it, if you are accessing the site via a mobile phone or similar). These will cover the following two themes:
- The “FENS Job Postings (including Ph.D.)” field automatically covers – as the name implies – all recent job postings at the FENS Jobs site, the primary site for academic neuroscience positions, including available Ph.D. openings.
- The “Cognitive Neuroscience Online” field automatically covers all recent updates from the following sources:
The benefits of doing this will be that our website news updates – and associated (RSS) feed – will instead focus on more immediately department-related issues (department-specific publications, events, etc.), as well as saving us a lot of time that previously went into creating and curating various link-containing posts. The drawbacks will include that the linked-to content will now not be filtered for relevance (as it was before), nor will it be pushed out to our (RSS) feed subscribers, insofar as the links won’t occur in posts from this website. For those interested in subscribing directly to either or both of the feeds above (i.e. the FENS Job Postings and the combination-feed for the six cognitive neuroscience sites), links to the feeds can be found in the sidebar, in each respective field.
