Two prizes of $1000 each will be awarded for the most original and important accomplishments in neuroscience research by a predoctoral or postdoctoral fellow. Current Washington University predoctoral students, postdoctoral fellows and residents are invited to submit five copies of a summary of their work to Brad Schlaggar at Campus Box 8111 (or bring directly to Room 2220K East Building). Alternatively, an electronic file may be sent to email@example.com. The submission must arrive no later than 5pm, FEBRUARY 8, 2013.
The summary should include a title page indicating the applicant's name, preceptor, campus box, telephone number, email address and status (e.g. graduate student, postdoctoral fellow, resident). The summary itself should begin with a 250 word abstract and be no longer than 5 double spaced pages, including figures but not references. A separate listing of no more than 10 references is allowed. In addition, a letter from the applicant's preceptor attesting to the contents of the summary should accompany the submission. A letter of recommendation is not needed; just attestation to the work.
All work to be considered for the prizes must have been carried out by the applicant while a student, resident, or fellow at Washington University. From the submitted summaries the Selection Committee will choose those to be presented at the O'Leary Prize program on Monday afternoon, March 11, 2013 from 1:00-4:00pm, Location TBD
