In collaboration with EJN - the European Journal of Neuroscience - we are launching a Distinguished Achievement Award in 2008: the "FENS EJN Award".
This biennial award donated by Wiley-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 2006, the Award was given to John Garthwaite from the Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research, University College London, UK. Details of Prof. Garthwaites ground breaking discoveries can be found here: FENS EJN Award 2006.
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 working abroad. There is no age limit.
The award 2008 has been attributed and will be presented at the FENS Forum in Geneva (12 - 16 July 2008). 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 deadline for application was 31 July 2007.
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.
