The National MS Society is seeking proposals from promising investigators to train and transition into research careers focused on multiple sclerosis:
Preliminary applications due May 9; full applications due August 15
The Career Transition Fellowship targets current postdoctoral trainees who demonstrate both commitment and exceptional potential to conduct MS-related research.
Applicants must hold a doctoral degree (MD, PhD or equivalent) and must be in a research-oriented postdoctoral training program at an academic, government, or non-profit research institution.
Applicants must have between three to five years of postdoctoral research experience at the time of application.
The award provides approximately $550,000 over five years to support a two-year period of advanced postdoctoral training in MS research and the first three years of research support in a new faculty appointment.
To submit a preliminary application for research support, investigators must use our Apply Online site and complete a pre-application. Staff will review the pre-applications and selected applicants will be invited to submit full proposals.
Deadline: Preliminary application due May 9; Full application due August 15
