National Multiple Sclerosis Society – Career Transition Fellowships

Expire le 10 juin 2024

Finding a way to stop MS, restore function and end MS forever will require a cadre of well-trained scientists engaged in MS-related research. The Society’s Career Transition Fellowship addresses this need by fostering the development and productivity of young scientists who have potential to make significant contributions to MS research and help ensure the future and stability of MS research. The award provides approximately $600,000 over five years to support a two-year period of advanced postdoctoral training in MS research and the first three years of research support in a new faculty appointment.

The Career Transition Fellowship targets current postdoctoral trainees who demonstrate both commitment and exceptional potential to conduct MS-related research.

  • Applicants must hold a doctoral degree (M.D., Ph.D. or equivalent) and must be in a research-oriented postdoctoral training program at an academic, government, or non-profit research institution.
  • Applicants must have more than two years of postdoctoral research experience and no more than five years of postdoctoral research experience at the time of application. (Clinically related training periods such as medical residencies or sub-specialty fellowships will not be counted towards postdoctoral research experience.)
