Milosh Perovitch - Johns Hopkins Travel Grant Announcement

Milosh Perovitch - Johns Hopkins Travel Grant Announcement

Milosh Perovitch was a Yugoslav physician who spent several years of his academic career in the Department of Radiology at Johns Hopkins Medical Institution in the 1960’s and 1970's. Upon his death in 2006, he bequeathed a modest sum of money to the Neuroradiology Division of JHMI. The annual interest on this money amounts to about $10,000 per year and the JHMI neuroradiology division has, in deference to Dr. Perovitch's close ties to Europe, created reverse sabbaticals to Europeans willing to visit our Division for a period from 2-4 weeks, depending upon the visitor’s budgetary constraints. The goal of the visit is to exchange knowledge and develop collaborations. The stipend would be used to defray the visitors' expenses for the month as a travel grant. Expenses above this allotted amount would have to be covered by the grantee.


The Division of Neuroradiology is now accepting applications for a visit for calendar year 2018-9. The application process is a 1-2 page letter addressed to David M. Yousem detailing: 


 1) Proposed material (educational, clinical, research) to be exchanged with Johns Hopkins Faculty and fellows and residents in the area of neuroradiology

2) If appropriate, proposed technique (interventional or otherwise) which could be taught/shared

3) Months of availability in 2018-2019 and length of stay requested (minimum 2 weeks)

4) One letter of support from a neuroradiology colleague

 Please include a CV and a single reprint or PDF file of your work in the research/clinical  area appropriate for us to use to evaluate your proposal.

 Decisions will be made based on merit and a vote of the JHMI Neuroradiology faculty.

Deadline for receipt of application for 2018-9 is July 1, 2018. Decisions will be made by August 1, 2018.


Call for Neuroradiology Editor-in-Chief Candidates

Call for Neuroradiology Editor-in-Chief Candidates

The European Society of Neuroradiology and the publisher Springer are seeking applications and nominations for the position of the Editor-in-Chief for the journal Neuroradiology, a journal dedicated to Neuroimaging and Interventional Neuroradiology. Neuroradiology is the official journal of the European Society of Neuroradiology (ESNR), the Japanese Neuroradiological Society and more than 20 national Neuroradiology societies.

Neuroradiology aims to cover all aspects of adult and pediatric brain, spine and skull base neuroradiology (e.g. Diagnostic, Interventional, Morphological, Advanced Imaging, Head & Neck), with emphasis on clinical research; important advances and findings on neuroanatomy, neurobiology and neurophysiology that affect neuroradiology are also presented. The journal publishes papers that offer critical guidance in neuroradiology and includes the application of the latest techniques. Technical and clinical results in the field of Interventional Neuroradiology are also presented. The journal receives submissions on all aspects of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology from all over the world and publishes scientific articles and review articles on timely topics.


The Editor-in-Chief, working in consultation with Section Editors, is responsible for encouraging and commissioning submissions of scientific manuscripts to the journal, for setting high standards for scientific integrity, for release of accepted manuscripts on a timely basis, for formulating and interpreting editorial policies and philosophy and for cooperating with the ESNR Publication Committee, the ESNR Executive Committee and the publisher in the production of a self-supporting, peer-reviewed journal. The Editor-in-Chief adheres to standards of editorial good practice as recommended by organizations such as the Committee of Publication Ethics (COPE). Furthermore, the Editor-in-Chief is responsible for maintaining close contact with the latest trends in electronic media and for ensuring that the journal is able to serve its scientific and educational purposes in multiple formats, as the demands of communication evolve. The Editor-in-Chief works with members of the neuroradiological community, including authors, editors, readers, etc. to reinforce strong relationships within the neuroradiological field.


The ideal candidate should have a vision of how to lead the journal and increase its impact in the international community. The successful candidate should have a broad interest and experience in neuroradiology and research, a commitment to leading this journal to a preeminent position in the specialty, and a clear idea of the pragmatic issues involved in accomplishing this mission. Eligible for this position are ESNR members with full membership for at least five years.


The new Editor in Chief will be appointed by the publisher in consultation and agreement with the ESNR. The Editor in Chief is expected to work closely with the publisher on all aspects of publishing, to be an active member of the ESNR, and to liaise with the ESNR executive committee.

· Vision statement that provides a clear description of your vision for Neuroradiology under your leadership. The statement should set forth goals and plans for the content of the journal and how to put the plan into action.

· Curriculum vitae that accurately portrays your experience, indicates your current affiliations, and lists your current contact information.


Applications will be reviewed by members of the ESNR Executive Committee and the publisher immediately after the submission deadline.
