Eligible are all young scientists not yet in a permanent position (e.g. PhD student, junior post-doc or medical trainee) working in the field of myositis.
Applications shall include:

– time plan and methods planned to be applied (1 page)
– brief CV (1 page)
– description of the laboratory where the project is carried out (1 page)
– confirmation of financing of the applicant’s post for the duration of the project
Decision will be made in a two-step evaluation process.

March 2019, 16:45-18:45), where a final decision will be made based on the quality of the presentation and the scientific relevance of the project.
