ECNP Research Internship (ERI)
The ECNP Research Internship (ERI) is an initiative of ECNP and its Early Career Advisory Panel (ECAP), it aims to provide short-term research internship opportunities for early career scientists, across the spectrum of applied and translational neuroscience.
For the 2020-2021 ERI round fifteen research internships will be supported.
A selected group of senior researchers will offer a short two-week exploratory experience in their institutions.
The hosting mentor teaches the intern a basic translational research method which should be implemented at home upon return. The host is encouraged to establish a long term relationship with the intern.
ECNP will fund up to 1,000 EUR to the early career scientist for the entire internship period to cover the travel and accommodation expenses.
- It is not possible to apply for an internship if you have already participated in the programme during previous rounds.
- The ECNP Research Internship is only meant for researchers that fit the ECNP early career scientist criteria.
- Upon application you will be requested to insert your motivation, including a short summary on what you would like to do in the two-week period, and if your project can be continued when back home.
- Upon application you will be requested to upload a copy of your passport/identity card and a signed letter from your institute to confirm that you meet the ECNP Early career scientist criteria.
- The internship is especially intended for early career scientists who do not have this opportunity in their own organisation or country.
- The initiative aims to provide opportunities for early career scientists, across the spectrum of applied and translational neuroscience: translational internships are therefore valued positively.
All applications were reviewed by the ECNP Educational Committee. Applicants were informed of the review outcome before 1 June 2020.
