截止日期:2024 年麦克奈特学者奖

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.

目的

麦克奈特学者奖授予处于建立独立实验室和研究事业早期阶段的杰出青年科学家。该计划的目的是促进这些科学家对研究事业的承诺,这将对大脑研究产生重要影响。该计划旨在支持致力于在各级培训中指导来自代表性不足群体的神经科学家的科学家。麦克奈特学者奖的申请者必须证明他们有能力解决神经科学领域的重大问题,其中可能包括将基础研究转化为临床实践。他们应该表现出对公平和包容的实验室环境的承诺。

合格

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.

请注意,从 2024 年起,学者奖的资格期限已延长至五年。

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.
