The Esther A. & Joseph Klingenstein Fund and the Simons Foundation are inviting applications for the Klingensten-Simons Fellowship Awards in Neuroscience, among the nation's oldest and most illustrious fellowships for young investigators in neuroscience research.
Through the program, fellowships of $225,000 over three years will be awarded to young investigators in support of basic or clinical research that leads to a better understanding of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Areas of particular interest within the neurosciences include:
Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience — Studies of the mechanisms of neuronal excitability and development, and of the genetic basis of behavior.
Neural Systems — Studies of the integrative function of the nervous system.
Translational Research — Studies designed to improve the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and our understanding of the causes of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
To be eligible, applicants must hold a PhD and/or MD degree and have completed all research training, including postdoctoral training; and have a tenure track appointment or the equivalent.
