Society for Neuroscience Satellite Event
October 16, 2015
The University of Chicago and the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) announce a competition for travel awards to attend the Summer Program in Neuroscience, Ethics, and Survival’s (SPINES) Neuroscience Symposium. This inaugural symposium will be held the day before the 2015 Annual Society for Neuroscience (SfN) conference in Chicago IL on Friday, October 16th. The SPINES course is directed towards increasing the success of underrepresented doctoral, postdoctoral, and assistant professors. However, SPINES course directors welcome anyone who is a neuroscience scholar and who is interested in its curriculum.
The SPINES Neuroscience Symposium will highlight the successful research of past and present SPINES students, current and former SPINES faculty, prominent invited speakers, and NIH Program staff. There will be a poster session, mentoring sessions, and outreach to local high schools and universities that have a high proportion of underrepresented students.
The University of Chicago and the MBL welcome travel applications from pre-doctoral and postdoctoral neuroscience scholars, as well as professors at academic institutions and those in industry. There is a special interest in receiving applications from past and present SPINES students.
Each travel award is for a maximum of $750 and can be used to reimburse documented travel to and from Chicago, local transportation, and hotel accommodations on October 15th. Per Diem will not be reimbursed, however meals will be provided at the symposium.
Application deadline is July 31st.
