Apply for the 2nd CINP Research Fellowship for Early Careers

Application Deadline 15th December 2023

The CINP Early Careers Committee is organizing the 2nd CINP Research Fellowship for Early Careers with the theme ‘The Biomarker Quest: A Focus on Methodology’. This Fellowship programme will bring together a select group of early career clinicians and researchers to design and conduct their research projects under the mentorship of renowned experts.

Check-out information about the 1st edition of the CINP Research Fellowship for Early Careers for reference.

The programme includes online teaching modules with top researchers in their fields, such as Profs Allan Young, Samuele Cortese, Dominique Andres and Jennifer Phillips as well as an in-person colloquium that will take place immediately before the 35th CINP World Congress in Tokyo, Japan on 22nd May 2024 at 14:00 - 17:00. The in-person session will follow a reception and will include discussions on assigned papers and presentations from the participants on their research projects. 

The expected outcome is a collaborative research project on biomarkers in psychiatry.

Selected participants are required to register for the 35th CINP World Congress (the registration fee will be waived for the successful applicants) and to attend both the online and in-person components of the fellowship programme. Participants who successfully complete the full programme will be awarded with ‘CINP Research Fellow’ certificates.
