Amicitia Excellence Prize

The Amicitia Association awards an Excellence Prize in recognition of outstanding scientific research in all areas of neuroscience. Its aim is to support graduates from the neuroscience doctoral programs in the Lemanic area who are continuing their scientific career in an international academic institution.

 

Requirements
The candidate must have obtained a PhD degree from a local doctoral program in neuroscience (i.e. Lemanic Neuroscience Doctoral School or EDNE-EPFL) after December 31, 2014 and have a contract for a research position in a foreign academic institution.

 

Prize
This is a personal prize that will vary between 5’000 to 10’000, depending on the funds of the association available. The award is given to one single candidate and aims to complement the salary of graduates who start(ed) a new life in a foreign country. The prize is awarded once a year on the occasion of the Annual Neuroscience Meeting in Diablerets. The prize winner may be required to give a special lecture at this occasion and/or at an event organized by the Amiticia Association.

 

Procedure
The application must include:

  • Your thesis in pdf format
  • Motivation letter (max. 2 pages)
  • CV (max. 1 page)
  • Publication list
  • Copy of the contract from the foreign academic institution hosting you

The candidates are evaluated by a committee formed by members of the Amicitia Association and local faculty. The decision of the committee is final. Given your application is chosen for the award, two printed copies of your thesis must be sent in time before the award ceremony.
