MCDONNELL-PEW CENTRE FOR COGNITIVE
NEUROSCIENCE


Visiting Fellowship awards

An award from the J.S. McDonnell Foundation, St Louis, USA, will continue
to fund the Oxford McDonnell–Pew Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience
until April 2003. The centre, which is closely integrated with the Medical
Research Council Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, links work on many
aspects of brain research relevant to human cognition in several
departments at Oxford and other institutions.

The McDonnell–Pew Centre encourages work in all areas of cognitive
neuroscience across all relevant disciplines and embraces research on
experimental, theoretical, and clinical studies of perceptual analysis,
memory, language, and motor control, including philosophical approaches to
cognition. Current and fuller information on the centre is available at
http://www.cogneuro.ox.ac.uk.

The renewed centre offers several forms of support, including visiting
fellowships for distinguished researchers from overseas or elsewhere in
Britain who wish to work within the centre for periods between a week and
several months. A modest grant may be provided to help with costs of
travel and accommodation (but not salary or stipend), and to pay a bench
fee to the host department.

There is no application form. Applications should include the following
information:

name, address and status of applicant (in the form of a very brief
curriculum vitae);

names and addresses of collaborators in
Oxford;

a brief statement (up to 300 words) of the proposed research;

a list of any publications that have already resulted from the research;

an outline plan of visit/s and expenditure, with total estimated budget;

other sources of funding and the amount requested.

Applications can be submitted at any time (e-mail is acceptable), to Sally
Harte, Administrative Secretary, McDonnell–Pew Centre for Cognitive
Neuroscience, University Laboratory of Physiology, Parks Road, Oxford OX1
3PT (telephone: (2)72497, fax: (2)72488, e-mail: admin@cogneuro.ox.ac.uk).
