Deadline: 2021 McKnight Technology Awards

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 letters of intent for the 2021 McKnight Technological Innovations in Neuroscience awards.

Matumizi ya Mfuko wa Tuzo

Tuzo hizi zinahimiza na kusaidia wanasayansi wanaofanya kazi katika maendeleo ya riwaya na mbinu za ubunifu za kuelewa kazi ya ubongo. Mfuko wa Endowment una nia jinsi teknolojia mpya inaweza kutumika kufuatilia, kudhibiti, kuchambua, au kufanya kazi kwa mfano wa ubongo katika kiwango chochote, kutoka Masi hadi kiumbe kizima. Teknolojia hiyo inaweza kuchukua fomu yoyote, kutoka kwa vifaa vya biochemical hadi vyombo hadi programu na njia za hisabati. Kwa sababu mpango huo unatafuta kuendeleza na kupanua teknolojia mbali mbali zinazopatikana kwa neuroscience, utafiti msingi wa mbinu zilizopo haitazingatiwa.

Lengo la tuzo za Teknolojia ya Ufundi ni kukuza ushirikiano kati ya mishipa na taaluma zingine; kwa hivyo, maombi ya kushirikiana na ya nidhamu yamalikwa waziwazi. Kwa maelezo ya tuzo za zamani, visit past awardees.

Uhalali

Applicants must be working at not-for-profit institutions within the United States and must hold full-time appointments at the rank of assistant professor or higher, e.g. associate professor or professor. Scientists holding other titles such as research professor, adjunct professor, professor research track, visiting professor, or instructor are not eligible. Funds may be used for a variety of research activities, but not the recipient’s salary. Applicants may not be intramural employees such as those at the Allen Institute, National Institutes of Health, Howard Hughes Medical Institute and similar institutions, and may not hold another type of McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience Award that would overlap with the Technological Innovations Award.

Mchakato wa Uchaguzi

There is a two-stage selection process, beginning with a letter of intent (LOI). The selection committee will review the LOIs and invite a few applicants to submit full proposals which will be evaluated on the basis of creativity, the potential benefit of the new approach, and the significance of the problems to be addressed. Up to three awards are made annually, each providing $100,000 per year for two years. LOIs are due on December 7, 2020 (midnight in the last time zone on earth). Full proposals will be due April 26, 2021, and funding begins on August 1, 2021.

Jinsi ya Kuomba

Hatua ya kwanza: Bonyeza hapa kupata Fomu ya LOI ya Stage Moja. PI itahitajika kusanidi jina la mtumiaji na nywila (tafadhalihifadhi jina lako la mtumiaji na nywila kwani utaihitaji katika mchakato wote), jaza karatasi ya mkondoni, na upakie maelezo ya mradi wa kurasa mbili bila kurasa mbili. rejea; picha zozote lazima ziwe ndani ya kikomo cha kurasa mbili. Maelezo na miradi ya marejeo inapaswa kupakiwa kama PDF moja. Kwa PI nyingi, PI moja inapaswa kujaza fomu ya LOI; tafadhali ni pamoja na majina yote ya PI kwenye LOI ya kurasa mbili na ni pamoja na NIH Biosketch kwa kila mchunguzi. Waombaji wote wanapaswa kupanga kurasa za PDF kwa njia ifuatayo:

  • LOI ya kurasa mbili
  • NIH Biosketch for each investigator

Wanaomaliza utaalikwa kupitia barua pepe kuwasilisha ombi kamili; maagizo ya uwasilishaji yatatolewa wakati huo. Ushindani ni mkubwa sana; waombaji wanakaribishwa kuomba zaidi ya mara moja.

If you do not receive email confirmation of receipt of your LOI within a week of submission, please contact Eileen Maler.
