AKN Outstanding Research Awards:

We will present AKN Outstanding Research Awards in four different categories: Postdoctoral abroad, Postdoctoral in Korea, Pre-doctoral abroad, and Pre-doctoral in Korea. The number of awards may vary, depending on the number of qualified applicants and the availability of funding. Each award recipient will receive a $400 prize along with an award certificate.


Award recipients will be selected according to 1) the quality of their abstract and 2) their overall research accomplishments. An award recipient must be physically present at the award ceremony (if not, the awardee will be disqualified).


There is a special category for the Junior Faculty Award. One or two winners will be selected from junior members (≤5 years of faculty appointment) at the rank of Assistant Professor or an equivalent level at an academic institution in North America. The winner will be invited to present their work orally at the meeting and given a $1,000 prize. A full CV should be sent to Dr. Tae-Kyung Kim ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).


Deadline – October 20, 2017 (Friday)


What to send

  • a full CV (including complete publication record) for all applicants

  • a copy of the SfN abstract for poster/oral presentation and related information (presentation time & poster board number) for student and postdoctoral applicants - not necessary for Junior Faculty Award applicants)


The format of the application material – one PDF file.


Disqualifications – 1) previous winners of the same category awards; 2) applicants who are over qualified (over 5 years in the current position, appointment to a higher position than the category applied for, etc.); and 3) non-presenting author of the abstract (for students/postdoctoral applicants).
