Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards are designed to support early-career researchers under the mentorship of an independent investigator. These fellowships are awarded to qualified applicants whose proposed projects investigate hypotheses directly related to Dravet syndrome. Proposals are scored according to NIH guidelines based on the quality of preliminary data, research design, feasibility, investigator’s qualifications, and overall impact. Grants are awarded for $50,000 (beginning January 1 of each year), intended to support a full-time research effort with salary and benefits (no indirect costs).
Applicants should ensure their proposed project addresses the needs of the Dravet syndrome community and DSF’s mission to support research toward better treatments and a cure for Dravet syndrome.
Eligibility: Successful applicants hold an MD, PhD, or equivalent degree, are a clinical or post-doctoral fellow at an academic institution, may be US or foreign based, and do not hold a higher level faculty appointment.
Applications are due by Friday, September 10, 2021.
