ECNP launches research grant for young scientists

The European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) announces a unique opportunity for ECNP-members to support young scientists by offering a maximum of three ECNP Research Grants for Young Scientists each year. Each grant consists of a maximum amount of € 50,000.

The objective of the grant is to provide the opportunity for committed, promising European young scientists in neuropsychopharmacology and/or closely related disciplines to expand their knowledge and/or skills by working on scientific projects and to study the practice of neuropsychopharmacology preferably in a different country, thereby also creating new and international connections. Accordingly, the research work should be carried out at a European academic department of neuropsychopharmacology and/or closely related discipline.

To qualify for an ECNP Research Grant for Young Scientists, the applicant must:

•be a citizen of a European country (including Russia, Turkey and Israel)
•have a PhD or MD degree
•be within the first 5 years of employment after receiving the PhD or MD degree
•be actively engaged full-time in clinical or basic research, in neuropsychopharmacology and/or closely related disciplines at an institute or department with an ECNP-member as supervisor
•have a good working knowledge of the English language
•be able to fulfil the obligations of an awardee
The duration of the project to be proposed is between 3 and 12 months, starting within a year after the application is granted. For this year the applications can be submitted until 28 February 2008.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
