Brainbox Initiative Awards 2023: Deadline Approaching
If you're an early to mid-career neuroscientist with a passion for non-invasive brain stimulation and imaging, then these three prestigious awards are calling your name. The Brainbox Initiative Research Challenge Award, the Young Investigator Award, and the John Rothwell Award offer exceptional opportunities for recognition, support, and collaboration in the field. With the deadline for applications approaching on June 1st, you have less than a month left to seize these remarkable opportunities.
The Brainbox Initiative Research Challenge Award, established in 2016, is aimed at promising up-and-coming neuroscientists with ambitious research proposals in integrated non-invasive brain stimulation and imaging studies. By submitting your research proposal, you have a chance to win a loan of specialist non-invasive brain stimulation and/or imaging equipment for up to three months, expert technical help, a speaking slot at the Brainbox Initiative Conference, and more. Whether you work with TMS, tES, TUS, MEG, fNIRS, neuronavigation, or EEG, this award could provide you with the support you need to bring your research to life.
For early-career academics who have conducted notable research with non-invasive brain stimulation or imaging techniques, the Brainbox Initiative Young Investigator Award is an excellent opportunity. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are invited to submit their entries for consideration. The winner of this award will be granted a speaking slot at the Brainbox Initiative Conference in London, including a travel and accommodation bursary, a £500 cash prize, ongoing support and promotion of their research, and the chance to collaborate with the Brainbox Initiative as a Brainbox Ambassador. This award recognises and rewards the very best neuroscience research being carried out by emerging talent.
The prestigious John Rothwell Award, created by the Brainbox Initiative, is designed to acknowledge and reward excellence in non-invasive brain stimulation research. Open to postdoctoral researchers within 10-20 years of completing their PhD, this award recognises distinctive research that contributes directly to the advancement of knowledge in non-invasive brain stimulation. The winner will have the opportunity to present their research at the Brainbox Initiative Conference, be invited as a guest speaker at a workshop or webinar, receive a £1,000 cash prize, collaborate with the Brainbox Initiative to develop a workshop, and gain exposure through a profile and video detailing their award and research.
To be eligible for these awards, applicants must meet specific criteria related to their academic status, authorship of relevant publications, and their commitment to presenting their research. Make sure to review the eligibility requirements for each award carefully and submit your application before the approaching deadline.
As the deadline of June 1st draws near, it's time for early to mid-career neuroscientists specialising in non-invasive brain stimulation and imaging to seize these exceptional opportunities. Whether you aspire to gain access to cutting-edge equipment, present your research at a prestigious conference, receive financial support, or collaborate with renowned experts in the field, these awards provide a platform for recognition and advancement. Don't miss out on your chance to make a significant impact in the world of neuroscience. Submit your application today and take your research to new heights with the support of the Brainbox Initiative.
