The Grass Foundation 2016 Grass Fellowship Program

09 September, 2015 in Neuroscience News

Grass Fellowships at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, USA, support investigator-designed, independent research projects by scientists early in their career.

The 14-week Grass Fellowship Program provides early-career investigators with an unparalleled opportunity to develop and conduct independent neuroscience research projects within the vibrant scientific community of the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole. Fellows function as both an intellectual and social group during their stay and routinely interact with prominent scientists to build a support network of peers and researchers in their field. In addition to US citizens and permanent residents, international trainees are encouraged to apply. The fellowship is open to graduate students, postdocs and junior faculty. Your proposal does not have to be different from the project you are working on to take advantage of the equipment loaner program, the imaging opportunities at the MBL, the cool summer and resident researchers etc! Former fellows have called the program: “the most enriching experience of my early scientific life,” “the greatest training experience imaginable,” and "one of the most important experiences of my career.”

Applications for the 2016 Grass Fellowship Program are now available at the Grass Foundation website. The deadline for applications is December 5, 2015.
