Call for the IRTG start-up grant
The International Research Training Group: The neuroscience of modulating aggression and impulsivity in psychopathology (IRTG 2150; funded by the German Research Foundation [DFG]) issues a call for the IRTG start-up grant.
The IRTG start-up grant will be awarded to one excellent IRTG scientist, who has at least one paper submitted. The grant is endowed with money of up to €50.000, which shall be used to finance pilot projects or also to fund an own position. Start-up grants are not intended for coverage of equipment, consumables, travel or publication costs only. Money received via the IRTG start-up grant must be utilized at RWTH Aachen University, starting in the summer of 2022. The start-up grant should be used to promote the scientific career by facilitating further third party funding. Thus, it may be used for pilot projects that are innovative, international and closely connected to the main topics of the IRTG.
The application deadline for the start-up grant is April 1st, 2022.
To be eligible for the grant, applicants
