Call for Applications: Japan Neuroscience Society Young Investigator Award 2018

Call for Nominations of the 2018 Japan Neuroscience Society Young Investigator Award
We now accept nominations for the 2018 Japan Neuroscience Society Young Investigator Award.

This Award is directed to 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 for more than three years (researchers who have temporarily suspended research activities due to childbirth, child rearing or others may well be considered).

Award recipients will be selected based on their research achievements, research plans, and contributions to the field, but not individual publications. We encourage applications from a wide variety of research fields, without any bias toward the research fields where publications are relatively easy. Please note the deadline as well as the eligibility requirement of membership duration (at least three years in total, Rules and Regulations 2). Additionally, award nominees that have been selected during documentation evaluation will be required to submit a review article related to their research to Neuroscience Research (deadline planned for March 31, 2018). The Selection Committee will check the submitted manuscripts before determining the award winners (Rules and Regulations 3). The manuscript will be further evaluated by Neuroscience Research Editorial Board for publication in the journal. The details of the selection processes are described in the Rules and Regulations.

We expect to receive many applications.

For application, 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).

rearing or other life events)
