Program Title: EAR Postdoctoral Fellowships (EAR-PF)

Synopsis of Program: The Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) awards Postdoctoral Fellowships to recent recipients of doctoral degrees to carry out an integrated program of independent research and education. The research and education plans of each fellowship must address scientific questions within the scope of EAR disciplines. The program supports researchers for a period of up to two years with fellowships that can be taken to the institution of their choice (including facilities abroad). The program is intended to recognize beginning investigators of significant potential, and provide them with research experience, mentorship, and training that will establish them in leadership positions in the Earth Sciences community. Because the fellowships are offered only to postdoctoral scientists early in their career, doctoral advisors are encouraged to discuss the availability of EAR postdoctoral fellowships with their graduate students early in their doctoral programs. Fellowships are awards to individuals, not institutions, and are administered by the Fellows.

Robert Katzman, MD, Clinical Research Training Fellowship in Alzheimer’s Research

Robert Katzman, MD, Clinical Research Training Fellowship in Alzheimer’s Research

Robert Katzman, MD, Clinical Research Training Fellowship in Alzheimer’s Research Cosponsored by the American Academy of Neurology, the American Brain Foundation, and the Alzheimer’s Association

Application Deadline: October 1, 2015

The American Academy of Neurology, the American Brain Foundation, and the Alzheimer’s Association are pleased to announce a fellowship to support clinical research training in Alzheimer’s. The fellowship is supported by the Alzheimer’s Association, the American Academy of Neurology, and the American Brain Foundation. Each fellowship will consist of a commitment of $55,000 per year for two years, plus $10,000 per year for tuition to support formal education in clinical research methodology at the applicant’s institution or elsewhere. Supplementation of the stipend with other grants or by the fellowship institution is permissible, but fellows may not accept other fellowships, similar awards, or have another source of support for more than 50 percent of their research salary during the first year of a Clinical Research Training Fellowship. If similar awards are obtained after completion of the first year of the Clinical Research Training Fellowship, fellows are required to submit a revised budget for review or may need to forfeit the rest of the award. Only direct costs will be funded by this fellowship.

IMPORTANT DATES October 1, 2015: Application deadline January 2016: Notification of recipients July 1, 2016: Funding begins ELIGIBILITY 1. For the purpose of this fellowship, clinical research is defined as “patient-oriented research conducted with human subjects, or translational research specifically designed to develop treatments or enhance diagnosis of neurological disease. These areas of research include epidemiologic or behavioral studies, clinical trials, studies of disease mechanisms, the development of new technologies, and health services and outcomes research.” Disease related studies not directly involving humans or human tissue are also encouraged if the primary goal is the development of therapies, diagnostic tests, or other tools to prevent or mitigate neurological diseases. 2. Applicant must be an AAN member interested in an academic career in clinical research who has completed residency or a post-doctoral fellowship (for a PhD) within the past five years. Those early in their clinical research careers will be given priority. EVALUATION AND SELECTION Applications are evaluated by members of the Clinical Research Subcommittee, Translational Neuroscience Subcommittee, and various ad-hoc reviewers based on the following criteria: • Applicant’s ability and promise as a clinician-scientist based on prior record of achievement and career plan, letters of reference, and curriculum vitae (30 percent) • Quality and nature of the training to be provided and the institutional, departmental, and mentor-specific training environment (30 percent) • Quality and originality of the research plan (40 percent)
