ECNP launches research grant for young scientists

12.02.2008
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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
