Dear friends and colleagues,
Thank you for visiting the Grass Foundation booth at SfN 2018! It was a pleasure to speak with so many of you and we hope to welcome you to the Grass Fellows program in the future.
The Grass Fellowship Program at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, USA, supports investigator-designed, independent research projects by scientists early in their career. Supported approaches include neurophysiology, biophysics, integrative neurobiology, neuroethology, neuroanatomy, neuropharmacology, systems neuroscience, cellular and developmental neurobiology, and computational approaches to neural systems. The Foundation also has a longstanding interest in epilepsy-related research.
Grass Fellowships are 14 weeks long (typically from the end of May to the start of September), and provide research support including laboratory space, animals, equipment and supplies for one summer at the MBL. Additionally, the investigator, his/her spouse or legal domestic partner, and dependent children are provided housing, a daily meal allowance and round-trip travel to the MBL. If applicable, Fellows must hold valid visas for the duration of the fellowship program.
Fellows function as an intellectual and social group within the MBL scientific community while sharing space in the Grass Laboratory. In a weekly private seminar series, eminent investigators at the MBL discuss their work with the Fellows. In addition, a yearly Forbes Lecturer will spend a portion of the summer in the Grass Lab interacting with Fellows.
Deadline: December 5, annually.
