Klingenstein Fund: Klingenstein-Simons Fellowship Awards in Neuroscience

Grant Amount: $225,000 over three years
Deadline: February 15, 2022

Additional Information -
The Klingenstein-Simons Fellowship supports early-career investigators engaged in basic or clinical research that may lead to a better understanding of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Several areas within neuroscience are of particular interest:

  • Cellular and molecular neuroscience. Studies of the mechanisms of neuronal excitability and development, and of the genetic basis of behavior.
  • Neural systems. Studies of the integrative function of the nervous system.
  • Translational research. Studies designed to improve our understanding of the causes, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders.

To qualify for an award, investigators must hold a Ph.D. and/or an M.D, and have completed all research training, including post-doctoral training. 

The award of $225,000 is payable over a three-year period beginning July 1. It may be used for salary support, research assistants, equipment, or for any other purpose which promotes the scientific activities of the Klingenstein-Simons Fellow. The award is for the exclusive use of the Fellow and may not be used for institutional or departmental support. No provision is made for institutional overhead, but fringe benefits may be charged to the award. Payments will be made to the investigator’s institution with the understanding that the total amount of the award is to be made available to the Klingenstein-Simons Fellow, and will be transferred (together with any purchased equipment) should the Fellow change institutions. 

Please contact Lynn Wong if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
