     Guidelines and Rules 

     

    THE TAU GLOBAL RESEARCH & TRAINING FELLOWSHIP IN MEDICAL AND LIFE SCIENCES FUND (GRTF) was launched in May 2013 to support research visits of up to three months by TAU scientists to laboratories in the United States, Europe and around the world. The GRTF is made possible through a generous gift from the Bedford, NY-based Naomi Prawer Kadar Foundation, known hereafter as “The Naomi Foundation.”

     

    THE GOAL is to facilitate, encourage and strengthen true collaborations between Tel Aviv University and equally prestigious international research institutions that lead to expedited discovery and the swift transfer of new research techniques and methods. The emphasis is on the acquisition by the visiting fellows of techniques and methods that are not available in their home laboratories.

     

     

    ELIGIBILITY

    • The Fellowships are open to Tel Aviv University graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and senior team members currently working in research groups at the Sackler School of Medicine and/or the George S. Wise Faculty of Life Sciences.
    • Principal investigators are not eligible.  
    • Fellowships will be granted solely for formally established joint research projects.
    • Applications for international consultations, or to attend courses, workshops or symposia will not be considered.
    • Fellows must return to their home laboratory for a minimum of six months on completion of the Fellowship.

     

     

    APPLICATIONS will be accepted three times during the year: before or on January 1, May 1 and September 1. Awards will be announced within six weeks of the application deadline.

     

    Applications must be submitted on-line, in English. Applications should include curriculum vitae, including a list of publications of the applicant, synopsis of current work, statement of career plans,  description of the proposed collaboration and the letter of acceptance from the receiving institute. See Appendix 1 for the exact outlay of the proposal and word limits of each part.

     

     

    A single PDF file including all the above mentioned information should be emailed to the GRTF Scientific Committee at grtf@post.tau.ac.il prior to the deadline.

     

     

    In addition to the proposal, two confidential reference letters, including one from the applicant’s current supervisor, must be sent by those writing the reference letters directly to the GRTF Scientific Committee at: grtf@post.tau.ac.il. Letters must be received a week prior to the submission of the application. It is the applicant’s responsibility to make sure the letters arrive on time.

     

    Applications that do not conform to these guidelines will not be considered.

     

     

    REVIEW PROCESS

    Every application will undergo an initial review by the GRTF Scientific Committee. Those applications that pass the initial acceptance stage will be assigned to one committee member for in-depth review. The responsible committee member will solicit external reviews by experts in the field.  External reviewers will establish:

     

    • The quality of the proposal and the recommendations.
    • The proven abilities and academic record of the applicant.
    • The quality of research in the home and host labs.
    • The potential benefits of the collaboration, including the acquisition of new research methods and techniques.

     

    The responsible committee member will then prepare a summary statement based on the external reviews and his/her own opinion, which will be distributed to the committee members for final decision.

    The applicant will be promptly informed of the decision.

     

    Applications not selected for funding may be eligible for one resubmission as determined by the committee. Eligibility for resubmission will be indicated in the decision announcement.

     

     

    AWARD

    Fellowship awards will be announced within 6 weeks after the application deadline. Awards will be given for up to $6,000 for 3 months. This includes airfare and a maximum of $1,500 / month stipend. Each applicant will be subsidized according to need, as decided by the committee.

     

    Fellowship awardees who have started their visit to a host laboratory before the final decision has been made, but after the submission of the application, will be reimbursed. Reimbursement will not be provided in cases when the visit has been paid for by research grants that explicitly include budget allocations for such collaboration, such as BSF of GIF.

     

    Recipients are requested to use the allocated budget within six months of the decision announcement.

     

    Recipients are requested to read and agree to the terms and conditions of the agreement between TAU and The Naomi Foundation, and to credit the participation and support of THE TAU GLOBAL RESEARCH & TRAINING FELLOWSHIP IN MEDICAL AND LIFE SCIENCES FUND and The Naomi Foundation in any advertisements, publications resulting from the project, publicity or public comments related to the project. See Appendix 2 for details.

     

    Recipients will be asked to provide the GRTF with a report of their activity at the host lab within 60 days after returning from the visit. See Appendix 3 for report guidelines.
