Support for researchers in cognitive sci/neuro/psy from Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus
We are a small community of cognitive scientists working or studying in Europe / US, who wish to support those fleeing Ukraine because of the Russian invasion, or those fleeing Russia and Belarus in fear of persecution for their political views or for other reasons.

To those who are willing to provide assistance to the researchers in cognitive sciences fleeing Ukraine, Russia and Belarus:

If you are interested in providing any help (e.g., you are a P.I. who has a position opening or you are interested in supporting a grant application), please get in touch with Mara Kuvaldina (Columbia University,

To the researchers in cognitive sciences who need assistance:

What we can do:

1) look at your CV / cover letters / anything else in your application package to bring it into shape
2) help you get in touch with relevant labs
3) provide advice on academia-related topics

Please take a look at the page listing different resources here. If you are a student and look for general advice on how to apply for BA/MA/PhD programs, please take a look at these Telegram channels first: "Карьера в науке. Виктория Коржова", "Дорогие коллеги".

If you need support, please fill in the form here and we will get in touch ASAP.

This is a volunteer effort and unfortunately, we cannot promise anything but we will try our best to help you.
