Scientists of Tomorrow

Promote and support basic science among young ESC members

Join the Scientists of Tomorrow nucleus

The Scientists of Tomorrow (SoT) is the group of young proactive basic and translational researchers (PhDs and/or MDs), who work closely with the ESC Council on Basic Cardiovascular Science since 2013 to promote and support basic science among young ESC members.

If you are a driven early career basic researcher or a physician-scientist working on cardiovascular field willing to share your ideas with the young ESC community and actively contribute to the scientific, educational and advocacy activities of the ESC, apply to join the SoT nucleus!

Two new SoT nucleus members will join our team starting on January 2018. Priority will be given to early career group leaders or young faculty members (till max. 5 years after the first faculty position) working on basic or translational cardiovascular science in Europe, who are usually under 40 years old and have made a considerable impactful contribution in basic cardiovascular science.

Further, gender and geographical representation in the SoT nucleus will be taken into consideration. Importantly, applicants MUST be SoT members (via our LinkedIn network) to apply for being part of the SoT nucleus.

To find out more about our group and activities, visit our web pages and connect with us on LinkedIn! We are already more than 600 members.

Applicants should submit a CV including the 5 most important publications and a motivation letter explaining in detail how the SoTs shall serve the young basic scientists in Europe to before 1st of November 2017. A support letter by the employer or a mentor and/or a Fellow of the ESC is recommended, but not required.


The “Scientists of Tomorrow” (SoT) is the new group of young proactive basic and clinical researchers, who will work closely with the Council on Basic Cardiovascular Science to fulfill its mission in promoting and supporting basic science among young ESC members. Members of the "Scientists of Tomorrow" will contribute to the scientific, educational and advocacy activities of the ESC paving the way of its future. 

The SoT community continues its development by opening its online platform. Via the LinkedIn platform, basic scientists from all around the world will be able to exchange easily about major issues and discoveries.
Reaching the SoT community on LinkedIn means strengthening your network.
