IBRO – MBL and CSHL Fellowships

The IBRO (International Brain Research Organization) US-Canada Regional Committee (USCRC) is pleased to announce our 2021 fellowships program that will cover the cost for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows training in neuroscience in Canada to attend advanced neuroscience courses or meetings at the Marine Biological Laboratories (MBL) at Woods Hole, MA., and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL), NY.

For MBL, all trainees are welcomed to apply but preference will be given to trainees belonging to minority groups (Indigenous communities in Canada, visible minorities, persons with disabilities, women, and other minorities) as
well as those in non-U15 Universities (http://u15.ca/). The MBL awards will cover the cost of tuition, room, and board. Fellowships are worth up to $11,000 per trainee depending on the course taken.

For CSHL, reduced registration fees for virtual meetings are available for trainees from non-U15 Universities (http://u15.ca/). If in-person courses resume in the second half of 2021, partial tuition support of up to $8,000 per trainee will be available.

The aim of this program is to increase diversity in neuroscience in Canada, by providing such trainees with access to cutting-edge research training in contemporary neuroscience.

Interested trainees should submit applications directly to the course of interest (see link below). Evaluation of applications and offers of admission to courses are made by the course leaders. Accepted candidates with the backgrounds mentioned above will be automatically considered for IBRO fellowship.

Eligible MBL courses: Neural Systems and Behavior, Neurobiology: Mechanisms & Advanced Approaches, Methods in Computational Neuroscience, Biology of the Inner Ear: Experimental and Analytical Approaches, Brains, Minds and Mechanisms, Physiology: Modern Cell Biology Using Microscopic, Biochemical and Computational Approaches, and Frontiers in Stem Cells and Regeneration.

Eligible CSHL courses: see link below.
