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. These grants will be funded up to $75,000. The awards will provide one year of support for 2-4 SRS Members. Recipients are expected to apply for a mentored or independent federal research award within the funding period. In any year that this request for applications is posted, awardees may apply for a second year of funding, providing they have submitted an application for a federally funded research award.
The awards are intended to further our understanding of sleep and sleep disorders. All areas of and approaches to sleep research will be considered.
Applications must be submitted in English using the official SRSF Early Career Development Application Form. Applying for the award involves submitting the fully completed application via e-mail as an attached PDF to email@example.com.
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, 2015. All proposals must be submitted electronically, on the published form, as one complete PDF document to firstname.lastname@example.org Incomplete applications will not be considered.
