Multiple Sclerosis Society Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Society welcomes applications for support of training of postdoctoral fellows in studies related to multiple sclerosis which may serve to advance the mission of the Society. To be considered for funding, all projects must show relevance to the Society’s mission. The proposed postdoctoral program should emphasize opportunities for new research training and broadening scientific competence of the applicant. Applicants with 0-36 months of previous postdoctoral training may apply for this award and must hold, or be candidates for, an MD, PhD or equivalent degree. Application deadline is August 13, 2010.

The National MS Society seeks to attract and train promising young investigators and doctors into the field of MS by supporting the training of postdoctoral fellows in studies related to MS. The Society supports fundamental as well as applied studies, non-clinical or clinical in nature, including projects in patient management, care and rehabilitation.

The Society offers postdoctoral fellowship grants to unusually promising recipients of M.D., Ph.D. or equivalent degrees when it appears that the program of training to be supported by the grant will enhance the likelihood that the trainee will perform meaningful and independent research relevant to MS in the future, and obtain a suitable position which will enable them to do so.

Before submitting a proposal for fellowship support, the investigator must consult the Research & Clinical Programs Department by phone or email to determine whether the research plan is appropriate and relevant to the mission of the Society.

Deadline: August 13
