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 in the range of $50,000 to $75,000 through a generous donation from Jazz Pharmaceuticals. The awards will provide support for 2-4 individuals and may be renewed for a second year, based on accomplishment of milestones specified in the application and funding availability. Recipients are expected to apply for a mentored or independent research award during the period of funding.
The awards are intended to further our understanding of sleep and wake disorders in particular, the mechanisms or treatment of narcolepsy and other hypersomnias. Research can range from molecular neuroscience to clinical outcomes research.
Applications must be submitted in English. Applying for the award involves submitting the following items via e-mail as an attached WORD file or PDF. Applications that do not adhere to the following guidelines will be judged non-responsive and not reviewed.
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 research award outlined in the application?
