Fecha límite: Premios McKnight Scholar Awards 2024

Applications for the McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience Scholar Award are due January 15, 2024.

The McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience supports innovative research designed to bring science closer to the day when diseases of the brain can be accurately diagnosed, prevented, and treated. To this end, the McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience invites applications for the 2024 McKnight Scholar Awards.

Objetivo

Los Premios McKnight Scholar se otorgan a científicos jóvenes excepcionales que se encuentran en las primeras etapas de establecer una carrera independiente de laboratorio e investigación. La intención del programa es fomentar el compromiso de estos científicos con carreras de investigación que tendrán un impacto importante en el estudio del cerebro. El programa busca apoyar a los científicos comprometidos con la tutoría de neurocientíficos de grupos subrepresentados en todos los niveles de formación. Los solicitantes del premio McKnight Scholar Award deben demostrar su capacidad para resolver problemas significativos en neurociencia, que pueden incluir la traducción de la investigación básica a la práctica clínica. Deben demostrar un compromiso con un entorno de laboratorio equitativo e inclusivo.

Elegibilidad

Applicants for the McKnight Scholar Award must be independent investigators at not-for-profit research institutions in the United States and must hold a faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor and must have served at that rank for less than five years at the application deadline (exceptions made be made for parental leave). Individuals holding other titles such as Instructor, Research Assistant Professor, Adjunct Assistant Professor, or Instructor are not eligible. If the host institution does not use professorial titles, a letter from a senior institutional official (e.g. Dean or Director of Research) must confirm that the applicant controls their own dedicated institutional resources, laboratory space, and/or facilities. We seek to enhance geographic, gender, and racial diversity in neuroscience, and we encourage women and members of communities of color to apply. Applicants may not apply in more than two rounds of competition, have already been granted tenure, or hold another award from the McKnight Endowment Fund.

Tenga en cuenta que a partir de 2024, el período de elegibilidad para los premios Scholar Awards se ha ampliado a cinco años.

Aplicación y selección

Para acceder a la solicitud y las pautas a través de nuestro portal en línea, haga clic aquí. A review committee will evaluate applications and invite a select few to interview with the committee. Applicants selected will be notified by early April 2024. The interviews are scheduled for May 3 and 4, 2024 and will be conducted remotely. The committee will then recommend candidates to the Board of Directors of the Endowment Fund for final decision. Awards will be announced by late June 2024. Each Scholar will receive $75,000 annually in 2024, 2025, and 2026. Funds may be used in any way that will facilitate development of the Scholar’s research program, but not for indirect costs.
