One of the main objectives of the Circadian Mental Health Network is to the support the development of Early Career Researchers (ECRs) working at the interface of mental health, sleep and circadian science.
Today, on #WorldMentalHealthDay, we are excited to announce the launch of our first ECR funding call.
This funding call is open to ECRs at any early career stage. The funding will be awarded to up to 8 ECRs to support networking activities, conference attendance, cross-training activities (e.g., ECR working in mental health training to develop their skills in circadian biology), mentoring visits (supporting ECR visits to their mentors’ labs to learn and develop new skills), and public engagement activities.
We ask interested ECRs to submit their application and a two-page CV to us by Friday 15th December.
Successful applicants will share their activities with the Network to show how this funding has supported their development and contributed to creating an inclusive Network in the field of mental health, sleep and circadian science.
This is the first of many ECR funding opportunities to be provided by the Circadian Mental Health Network. So, watch this space!
You can find the application form and further details on our Opportunities page.
