Young Investigator Award
The Brainbox Initiative Young Investigator Award aims to stimulate and reward the very best, most novel neuroscience research being carried out by early-career academics. We welcome applications from current graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, and encourage anyone who has carried out notable research with non-invasive brain stimulation or imaging techniques to submit an application for consideration.
Each year, we award one successful applicant with:
- A presentation slot to speak about their research at the Brainbox Initiative Conference in London (including a travel and accommodation bursary);
- A £500 cash prize;
- Ongoing support and promotion of your research by the Brainbox Initiative;
- The opportunity to work with the Brainbox Initiative as a Brainbox Ambassador as part of our workshop and webinar series.
In order to be eligible for the Young Investigator Award, applicants must:
- Be currently-enrolled graduate students or postdoctoral fellows within five years of gaining their PhD (excluding parental leave), and should be primarily responsible for the research described in the application;
- Agree to present their results/data at the Brainbox Initiative Conference;
- Be first or second author on at least one peer-reviewed paper relevant to the field of non-invasive brain stimulation and/or imaging.
““The Young Investigator Award and the possibility to collaborate with the Brainbox Initiative in the future will play a very important role in leading my future research in brain stimulation and neuroimaging"”
Young Investigator Award Winner 2020
Dr Davide Folloni of the University of Oxford is interested in understanding the architecture and functional dynamics of the neural circuits supporting learning and decision making. Its research uses a multi-modal approach to describe the anatomy, organization and neural activity of higher-order brain networks.
Thank you for your award application.
