Parkinson’s Foundation: Postdoctoral Fellowships for Basic Scientists

The Parkinson’s Foundation invites applications for its postdoctoral fellowships for basic scientists. These enable young scientists to study at major research institutions.

Funding & Duration

Fellowships each consist of a stipend worth USD $50,000 (approx. AUD $70,000) per year over two years to cover salary and an annual research allowance of USD $5,000 (approx. AUD $7,000) to be used to pay for books, training courses, travel costs up to USD $2,000 (approx. AUD $2,800), or a computer.

The foundation may approve USD $3,000 (approx. AUD $4,200) of the research allowance to defray health insurance costs.


Applicants must be within five years of receiving their PhD at the start of the award and must name an individual who will serve as their research supervisor. US and non-US researchers may apply. Fellows must commit 90 per cent of their time to a foundation-funded project.
