The WBI Research Fellowship Program is an important component of WBI. Each year, for three years, the WBI Fellowship Program is designed to select two early-career neuroscientists at the Brigham who wish to explore how biological sex may affect neurologic or psychiatric disorders, and related conditions of the nervous system, as well as how female-specific life transitions may influence brain health. The Program is structured to enable selected fellows to pursue new ideas not covered by their mentors’ laboratory and to develop their careers as independent investigators.
Each selected WBI Research Fellow shall receive $50,000 per annum for two years. The next WBI Research Fellowship RFP will be issued in February 2020. This Program is geared toward junior investigators. Postdoctoral research fellows, clinical fellows, Instructors, and Assistant Professors (within 3 years of Assistant Professor appointment) at the Brigham, with support from their mentors, are eligible to submit an application.
To date, the WBI Fellowship Selection Committee has selected the following investigators to join the WBI Research Fellowship Program. Congratulations to the awardees!
