Post-docs! Apply for a Travel Bursary to ISMRM-ESMRMB 2018: The Mansfield Research Innovation Award

Hopefully, you are well aware of the looming abstract deadline for ISMRM 2018: 8th November. What you may not know is that the British Chapter have a new travel bursary available to post-docs.

Siemens Healthineers are the generous sponsor of the Mansfield Research Innovation (MRI) Award, which helps to enable top post-doc members of the British Chapter working in the areas of neurology, cancer, interventional radiology, molecular imaging, physics or engineering, to attend the annual ISMRM meeting.

The aim of the award is to support ISMRM members who are too senior to qualify for trainee awards, but too junior to have established posts. If you fall into this category (normally within ~5 years of finishing your PhD) and your abstract is in an appropriate area, apply before December 1st by emailing your submitted abstract(s) and a brief CV to Penny: Final decisions will be made shortly after the meeting programme is announced in the spring.
