Annual Neuromuscular Postdoctoral Research and Clinical Fellowships Funding Competition Now Open

Together with Muscular Dystrophy Canada (MDC) and the Canadian Society of Clinical Neurophysiologists we are excited to announce the opening of our 2024 annual funding competition to award postdoctoral fellowships in neuromuscular disease (NMD) research, and clinical fellowship awards in neuromuscular medicine and electromyography! 

This annual funding competition provides salary support for early-career scientists to conduct postdoctoral studies in a laboratory focused on research of NMDs, and early-career clinicians to participate in a neuromuscular medicine and electromyography fellowship training program. Successful applicants are eligible to receive $40 000 in funding over a one-year period for a postdoctoral fellowship, and $80 000 in funding over a one-year period for a clinical fellowship.
