The Promising Scientist award is designed to acknowledge people who have performed superior biomechanics research early in their career. It entails a certificate and a monetary award of US$ 5000 for scientific purposes, such as visiting another research group to collaborate on a project. The competition is held each year in which there is an ISB-conference. The winner of the award is expected to give a 30 min. plenary presentation over the recent studies that have contributed to the award at the ISB-congress of the same year.

Requirements: To be eligible for the award, a candidate must (1) be a member of the ISB, (2) be post-doctoral but not more than 5 years. Each candidate must submit his or her full curriculum vitae, identify at least two first author full articles in peer reviewed scientific journals that he or she has written in a single area of Biomechanics, and provide interpretative summaries describing the contribution of each article. Applications for the award are to be sent to the Jury chairman. Please send your applications to ISB Awards Officer, Prof Catherine Disselhorst-Klug (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by February 28, 2017. Additionally, please download the PSA tick-box questionnaire here, answer the questions and send it back to the ISB Awards Officer.

    "The ASB Graduate Student Grant-in-Aid (GIA) deadline is January 15th. The GIA supports ASB student members pursuing biomechanics research by offering a source of research funding. The grants are distributed on a competitive basis and are intended to offset the costs directly associated with conducting research. Funds may be used for small equipment items, materials and supplies, and animal or participant costs, but cannot be used to support travel costs, salaries or indirect costs of research. The ASB anticipates awarding 3-5 grants of $2000 each for a one-year period beginning in May. "
