Connecting European Neuroscience

FENS EJN Award 2006

Dear FENS member,

In collaboration with EJN - the European Journal of Neuroscience - we are launching a Distinguished Achievement Award in 2006: the "FENS EJN Award".

 This biennial award donated by Blackwell, publishers of EJN, will be given in recognition of outstanding scientific work in all areas of neuroscience. This is a personal prize of 18.000 Euro.

In 2004, the Award was given to Richard Morris from the Division of Neuroscience, University of Edinburgh, UK. Details of Prof. Morris' ground breaking discoveries can be found here: FENS EJN Award 2004.

Candidates should be nominated by a FENS member (i.e. no self application) and must be either working in a European institute or be of European origin. There is no age limit.

The Award will be presented at the FENS Forum in Vienna (8-12 July 2006). The prize winner will be required to give a Special Lecture at the Forum and write a minireview for publication in EJN (these are conditions of the Award).

The nomination should be accompanied by the following documents:

  • short CV
  • list of publications
  • short summary outlining the main scientific contributions of the candidate, supported by key publications
  • two letters of nomination and recommendation from two key scientists in the field who are FENS members

 The candidate will be evaluated by a Committee formed by the EJN Receiving Editors.

The deadline for application is 30 June 2005.
