Neurodegeneration Award


Thanks to the great support from the Joachim Herz Stiftung in Hamburg, the NCL Foundation is pleased to announce a new call for proposals.


The aim of the Neurodegeneration Award is to improve synergies in research on CLN3 childhood dementia and age-related neurodegeneration. The grant (100.000 EUR) covers a postdoctoral fellowship salary for approx. two years.


Applications must meet the following requirements:


1. Two collaborating partners must co-apply for the fellowship

2. One partner must actively engage in CLN3 research

3. The second partner must be engaged in research on age-related neurodegeneration


The successful postdoctoral candidate should conduct a considerable part of his/her work in both laboratories. Laboratories interested in applying should first send us a brief letter of intent. After acceptance you will be asked to send in a full proposal. You can find the application form HERE.


Deadline for full proposals:February 28, 2018
