Klingenstein Fellowship Awards to Support Young Investigators Researching Epilepsy
Deadline: December 7, 2007
The Esther A. & Joseph Klingenstein Fund (http://www.klingfund.org/) is accepting applications for the Klingenstein Fellowship Awards. The awards are designed to support, in the early stages of their careers, young investigators engaged in basic or clinical research that may lead to a better understanding of epilepsy.
Several areas within the neurosciences are of particular interest to the fund: cellular and molecular neuroscience -- studies of the mechanisms of neuronal excitability and development, and of the genetic basis of seizure disorders; neural systems -- studies of the integrative function of the nervous system; and clinical research -- studies designed to improve the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and understanding of the causes of epilepsy.
Up to ten fellows will be appointed in 2008. The fellow who is judged to be the most outstanding physician-scientist will be identified as the Robert H. Ebert Clinical Scholar.
To qualify for an award, investigators must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degrees, and have completed all research training, including post-doctoral training. U.S. citizenship is not a requirement, but it is expected that candidates will be permanent residents of the U.S. and that their research will be carried out in U.S. institutions. The candidate should be an independent investigator, holding a tenure-track academic rank (but not yet tenured) in a university or medical school, or the equivalent standing in a research institute or medical center.
The award of $150,000 is payable over a three-year period. Complete program information is available at the Klingenstein Fund Web site.
