4th call for projects and travel awards

The McGill-Oxford-ZNZ Partnership in the Neurosciences announces the fourth call for joint projects and travel awards. The goal of the programs is to promote collaborative research between the three neuroscience centers.  

Joint projects/workshops for principal investigators
Considered are proposals for joint pilot projects and workshops that are submitted together with colleagues from Brain@McGill and/or Oxford Neuroscience. This call for proposals applies to projects concerning any area relevant to the nervous system and its disorders. Preference will be given to new, innovative, or high-risk collaborative projects.

Applications may be made in two categories:

  • Workshops: C$10,000 (or the equivalent in £GB/SFr)
  • Pilot projects: C$30,000

Principal investigators from at least two partner universities can file an application. The deadline for application is Monday 31 October 2016. Full details and application forms are available here.

Kollar travel award for graduate students and postdocs
Student mobility and training are also an integral part of this joint program. Graduate students and postdocs of the ZNZ can directly apply for financial support of an individual research stay of 1-4 months in a partner laboratory at McGill. Submission is possible anytime, no deadline. See Laszlo and Etelka Kollar Brain@McGill Graduate/ Postdoctoral Travel Award.
