Excellence in Sleep and Circadian Research
Each of the SRS awards is presented at SLEEP, the annual meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies. Members can nominate their colleagues for the awards or self-nominate. For research funding opportunities, the Sleep Research Society’s foundation, the SRSF, offers awards to sleep researchers.
SRS Mentor-Mentee Program
SRS Mentor Mentee Award
The goal of the Award is to link trainees with limited sleep/circadian mentoring options in their chosen field of interest to mentors that can provide rich, face-to-face opportunities in state-of-the-art research techniques and methods. The mentor-mentee relationship should also extend beyond the face-to-face portion and, as appropriate, include career guidance via ongoing phone or web-based meetings over the course of the funded year.
Collaborative Mentor Mentee Award
The goal of the Sleep Research Society/Australasian Sleep Association International Mentor-Mentee Program is to link trainees from institutions with limited sleep/circadian mentoring options in their chosen field of interest to mentors that can provide rich, face-to-face opportunities in state-of-the-art research techniques and methods.
Grant Guidance with a Guru Award
Past Presidents of the Sleep Research Society have graciously offered their time and expertise to give directed guidance in the NIH Grant Writing process. This relationship is intended to last during the writing, review and revision process for one major NIH grant and may be accomplished through telecommunication or in-person visits.
The SRS is committed to improving sleep research through awards and other SRS membership benefits.
If none of the awards match your needs at the moment feel free to look at our membership page for more ways the SRS can help you network with colleagues, gain insight into cutting edge technology and collaborate with peers worldwide.
