Hatua ya kwanza ni kuwasilisha barua ya ukurasa wa mbili ya nia ya kuelezea jinsi tuzo ya McKnight itakubali mbinu mpya na mafanikio kuelekea maendeleo ya utafiti wa kutafsiri.
Barua hiyo inapaswa kushughulikia maswali yafuatayo:
- Ni shida gani ya kliniki unayozungumzia?
- Ni malengo gani maalum?
- Je! Ujuzi na ujuzi uliopata katika utafiti wa msingi unatumikaje kuboresha uelewa wa ugonjwa wa ubongo au magonjwa?
- How are you fostering an inclusive and equitable lab environment?
Barua hiyo inapaswa kufafanua wazi jinsi utafiti uliopendekezwa utafunua utaratibu wa kuumia kwa ubongo au magonjwa na jinsi utavyotafuta kwa uchunguzi, kuzuia, matibabu, au tiba.
Barua ya nia inapaswa kujumuisha anwani za barua pepe za wachunguzi wakuu na kichwa cha mradi huo.
Maelezo ya LOI
The application process is completely online. Bonyeza hapa to access the Stage One LOI form. One investigator (the primary contact for the proposal) will be required to set up a user name and password (please retain your username and password as you will need it throughout the process); then complete an online face sheet and upload a two-page project description (images must be within the two-page project description); please limit references to two pages (in addition to project description). Please single-space in 12-point font using one-inch margins. In this order A) project description and references, and B) NIH Biosketches for each PI should be uploaded as a single PDF.
Finalists will be invited via email to submit a full proposal. Competition is very intense; applicants are welcome to apply more than once.
If you do not receive email confirmation of receipt of your LOI within a week of submission, please contact Eileen Maler.
Mchakato wa Uchaguzi
Kamati ya ukaguzi itapima barua na itaalika wagombea wachache kuwasilisha mapendekezo kamili.
Kufuatilia mapitio ya mapendekezo, a kamati itapendekeza hadi tuzo nne kwa Bodi ya Wakurugenzi wa Mfuko wa Uwezeshaji. Bodi itafanya uamuzi wa mwisho.
The Endowment Fund will fund up to four awards, each providing $100,000 per year for three years. Awards will be announced in July and begin in August 2023.
A candidate for a McKnight Neurobiology of Brain Disorders Award must work as an independent investigator at a not-for-profit research institution in the United States, and must hold a faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor or higher. Those holding other titles such as Research Professor, Adjunct Professor, Professor Research Track, Visiting 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 has his/her own dedicated institutional resources, laboratory space, and/or facilities.
A candidate may not hold another award from the McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience that would overlap in time with the Neurobiology of Brain Disorders award.
