IBRO’s Latin America Regional Committee (LARC) will evaluate applications for funding (up to 1200 euros) for short research/training lab visits within the Latin American region to take place between July 1st and December 31st, 2017. Applications must be submitted on-line. Applications by e-mail will not be accepted.

Candidates should not be older than 40 years. Priority will be given to doctoral students and postdocs who wish to attend a foreign lab within the region and who plan to link their lab stay with attendance to a course or congress. When the short lab stay is linked to attendance to a course or congress, an application for a LARC Travel Grant must also be submitted.  Applications for activities within the applicant’s own country will be considered only if adequately justified.  Applicants must supply an activity plan, a letter of support from their director – specifically for the proposed activities – and a letter of acceptance from the host institution.

Deadline for applications: March 31, 2017 (11:59 p.m. CET). 

Apply here.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————

TRAVEL GRANTS

IBRO’s Latin America Regional Committee (LARC) will evaluate possible funding (up to 1200 euros) for attending courses/workshops and/or presenting results at meetings within the region to take place between July 1st and December 31st, 2017. Applications must be submitted on-line. Applications by e-mail will not be accepted.

Candidates should not be older than 40 years. Priority will be given to doctoral students and postdocs who plan to link their attendance to a course or congress with a research or training lab stay. When the attendance to a course or congress is linked to a short lab stay, an application for a LARC Short Stay Grant must also be submitted. Applications for activities within the applicant’s own country will be considered only if adequately justified.  Applicants must supply an activity plan and a letter of support from their director – specifically for the proposed activities.

APPLICATION RESTRICTIONS 

1) Applicants that have previously received an IBRO LARC travel grant will only be eligible for another grant after a 3 year interval.
2) Only one applicant from the same lab and director working on the same subject will be accepted.
3) Travel grant applicants will be classified into 2 categories:

  • Graduate Students/ Ph.D. candidates: For students below 35 years old.
  • Postdoctoral students: Below 40 years old.

4) Travel grants will be classified into two categories:

  • Short distances: 800 Euros (e.g. South-South)
  • Long distances: 1200 Euros (e.g. South-North)

Deadline for applications: March 31, 2017 (11:59 p.m. CET).

Apply here.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————

SCHOOLS

IBRO’s Latin America Regional Committee (LARC) will evaluate possible funding for Schools targeted to advanced students and young researchers in the field of neuroscience throughout Latin America. The current round of funding is for schools taking place between July 1st and December 31st, 2017.

This activity should foster cooperation among regional neuroscientists (students and researchers). Failure to incorporate participants from the region seriously forfeits chances for approval. Contact any LARC member if you have doubts about your proposal.

Within 60 days after the activity, the coordinator must submit a report on the event and the use of IBRO funds. A summary of up to 200 words in English should also be submitted suitable for posting to the IBRO website. Please send all this information to the IBRO Secretariat.

TRANSYLVANIAN EXPERIMENTAL NEUROSCIENCE SUMMER SCHOOL Deadline March 5th, 2017

Transylvanian Experimental Neuroscience Summer School (TENSS)

 We have started a worldwide initiative to train young brain researchers, from both developed and poor countries, in understanding and using the most advanced tools in brain research today. We do this in an idyllic location, without any pre-existing infrastructure, where students and instructors alike enjoy the adventure, work hard, and build a sophisticated research lab from scratch.

The main objective of TENSS is to provide participants top-level, hands-on training in experimental techniques used in neuroscience, from optical to electrophysiological and behavioral methods. The philosophy of the school is learning by doing and while doing so, openly sharing ideas and expertise.

This is TENSS, the Transylvanian Experimental Neuroscience Summer School:
June 1-19, 2017. The Pike Lake, Transylvania, Romania

– http://www.tenss.ro/

• 3 weeks of 24/7 hands-on practical and theoretical courses in building, debugging,
using and interpreting data from cutting-edge experimental methods in modern neuroscience.
• A select group of the best applicants: for the 2016 edition, top 12 were selected from an excellent pool of 120 applicants from all over the world – 42 countries across 6 continents.
• A wide collection of experts: 20 instructors and 18 dedicated teaching assistants from Brain research institutes in the USA, UK, Germany, Portugal, Romania, India, Switzerland, Hungary and Slovakia.
• A knowledge base of Open-Source solutions to complex problems in brain research.

Coursework will take place in a land of myth and legend, beyond large forests (Transylvania), on the shores of a picturesque natural reserve called Pike Lake.

Applications are welcome from interested (and interesting) graduate students and postdocs. Please note that there is a significant number of fee waivers and travel support grants available for supporting our applicants.

Curso: Aprendizaje automático para el análisis de neuroimágenes

unnamed.png

El curso tiene por objetivo formar investigadores en la utilización de algoritmos de aprendizaje automático (Machine Learning) para el análisis de imágenes de resonancia magnética (RM) y electroencefalografía (EEG). Estos algoritmos han demostrado ser extremadamente eficientes en la detección de diferencias sutiles en los datos que no pueden ser identificadas por medio de análisis estadísticos tradicionales. Se trata de un curso intensivo de inmersión hands-on, de cinco días consecutivos, que comprenderá desde la adquisición de datos hasta su  análisis. El análisis se llevará a cabo a través de una herramienta de uso y distribución gratuita (http://www.cosmomvpa.org/) creada por el Dr. Nick Oosterhof.
Este curso es un satélite del II Congreso de LABMAN (Latin American Brain Mapping Network). Como parte de las actividades, los asistentes participarán del congreso los días 16 y 17 de marzo.

La capacidad del curso es 45 vacantes y cuenta con dos modalidades de inscripción:

  • Inscripción sin financiamiento: 25 vacantes
  • Inscripción a Becas: hay 20 becas para latinoamericanos que residan en Latinoamérica y a más de 70km de la Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires. Las becas cubren pasajes, seguro, viáticos, estipendio y matrícula.
