Call for Applications: Japan Neuroscience Society Young Investigator Award 2017 Closed

Applications for 2016 Japan Neuroscience Society Young Investigator Award 2017 are now closed.

Nominations for the 2017 Japan Neuroscience Society Young Investigator Award are now being accepted.

This Award is targeted towards young researchers who have obtained their PhD or equivalent degrees within the past 10 years and who have been active members of the Japan Neuroscience Society (researchers who have temporarily suspended research activities due to pregnancy or child rearing will also be considered).

Award recipients will be selected based on an evaluation of the applicant’s research achievements, plans, and contributions, and not individual manuscripts. We encourage applications from young researchers in a wide variety of research fields, not limited to fields of research that are easier to publish in. Please note the deadline as well as the eligibility requirement that the applicant must have been a member of the Society for a total of at least three years (Rules and Regulations 2). Additionally, award nominees that have been selected during documentation evaluation will be required to submit a review article on their research to Neuroscience Research (deadline planned for March 31, 2017). The award recipient will be finalized once the submitted manuscript is confirmed by the Neuroscience Young Investigator Award Selection Committee (Rules and Regulations 5). The submitted manuscript will be evaluated by Neuroscience Research Editorial Board for publication in this journal.

We hope to receive many eligible applications that adhere to the requirements.

Please send 10 copies of each of the documents listed below (1-3) to the Neuroscience Young Investigator Award Selection Committee (The Japan Neuroscience Society, 9th floor Hongo Building, 2-2 Hongo 7-chome, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, 113-0033).

1) The Japan Neuroscience Society Young Investigator Award Application Form in the predetermined format (color copy and figures are permitted)

2) CV (indicate if research activities were suspended temporarily due to pregnancy or child rearing)

3) Reprints (limit of three articles) related to the application (provide copies of manuscripts in press, or copies of published articles)

Deadline: October 1, 2016
(Please note that submitted applications and manuscripts will not be returned.)
