With these Fellowships, The Grass Foundation encourages independent research by investigators early in their careers and increases research opportunities for persons planning careers in neurobiological investigation. Supported approaches include neurophysiology, biophysics, integrative neurobiology, neuroethology, neuroanatomy, neuropharmacology, systems neuroscience, cellular and developmental neurobiology, and computational approaches to neural systems. The Foundation also has a longstanding interest in epilepsy-related research.
Grass Fellowships provide funds to support an investigator, his/her spouse or legal domestic partner, and dependent children for one summer at the MBL in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, USA. Laboratory research space, equipment, housing, a meal allowance and round-trip travel expenses to the MBL are provided.
Grass Fellowships at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) support investigator-designed, independent research projects. While sharing space in the Grass Laboratory, Fellows function as an intellectual and social group within the MBL community. The normal tenure is 14 weeks.
Applicants may be in the late stages of predoctoral training or be postdoctoral researchers. Applicants should not attempt to combine a Grass Fellowship with writing a Ph.D. thesis.
