GrantWatch ID#: 157693
Research support by the National Institute for Psychobiology is up to $15,000 per annum, with matching funds supplied by the host Institution or another source of another $10,000 per annum.
Applications for funding can be made for one or two years, although formal approval of a grant is given for only one year.
Applications for funding may be submitted by researchers associated with institutions of higher learning, accredited research institutes, and hospitals.
Preference will be given to young researchers, i.e. holders of a Ph.D. or M.D degree with appointments at the level of Lecturer or Senior Lecturer (up to 3 years after the initial Senior Lecturer rank appointment).
Only in extremely exceptional cases will support be granted to more senior staff, e.g. researchers from other fields who have changed their focus to psychobiology and lack other sources of financial support.
A research grant will be approved on condition that the researcher does not leave Israel for a period of more than four months during the year of his research. In the event that a researcher wishes to travel abroad for longer, he or she must inform the Institute of his or her intentions, and the grant will be frozen during the period that he or she is abroad.
Each application should be submitted by e-mail, along with three printed copies in English, and a diskette or CD of the application by mail. The total scope of the application should not exceed 15 pages.
