The award cycle for the 2018 SRSF CDA is now closed. The award cycle for the 2019 SRSF CDA will open in fall 2018.
The SRS Foundation recognizes the challenges of transitioning from post-doctoral training to independent research funding. The goal of these mentored awards is to invest in promising early career researchers and assist with their transition into independence as junior investigators. The awards will be funded up to $50,000. The awards will provide one year of support for two (2) or more SRS Members. Recipients are expected to apply for a mentored or independent federal research award within the funding period. A second year of funding is not available in this award cycle.
The awards are intended to further our understanding of sleep and sleep disorders. Submitted proposals will need to be considered cutting edge sleep/circadian research.
Applications must be submitted in English using the official SRSF Career Development Application. Applying for the award involves submitting the fully completed application via e-mail as an attached PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org
The overarching question assessed by the reviewers will be: Will this support enable the candidate to develop the skills, knowledge and/or preliminary data needed to apply for the mentored or independent federal research award outlined in the application?
The deadline for the receipt of the proposal is 11:59 pm, December 1, 2017. All proposals must be submitted electronically, on the published form with attachments, as one complete PDF document to email@example.com. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Please contact Barbara Hoeft at firstname.lastname@example.org or (630) 737-9700 with any questions.
