    Applications open for IBRO-APRC Exchange Fellowships Program 2018

    IBRO-APRC Exchange Fellowships Program 2018

    The IBRO-APRC Exchange Fellowships program aims to allow high-quality junior scientists at the level of postdoctoral fellow or junior faculty (under the age of 45) from diverse geographic and scientific areas to broaden the scope of their training in neuroscience by working for six months (minimum four months) abroad in established laboratories. Senior Ph.D. students with a good publication record and strong justification for the exchange program will also be considered. Both the applicant and the host laboratory must be within the Asia-Pacific Region.

    Selection criteria include academic credentials of the applicant and the host, as well as the quality of the research proposal with a structured research plan. Priority will be given to applicants from less developed and less well-funded countries. Strong justification must be made by the applicant that he/she will return home after the exchange, bringing with them new knowledge and skills to advance neuroscience in their home countries. The laboratory exchange should be completed by the end of March 2019. Please also declare all instances of IBRO funding you have received for travel of any kind in the past 4 years.

    Funding of up to US$8,500 is available in principle to cover each fellowship. The award may vary, depending on the period and the country in which the successful candidate studies. The grant will be used along with matching funds from the host laboratory to defray the cost of travel and to subsidize living costs. The grant from IBRO should not be used for the research costs including “bench fees”. Applications are available online only. The applications will be selected by IBRO-APRC members.

Deadline for applications: January 31st, 2018.
