The Sleep Research Society offers trainee members a number of different opportunities, both during the SLEEP 2017 meeting and throughout the year. These include:
SLEEP 2017 opportunities for trainees have been designed to foster scientific investigation, professional education, career development and networking in sleep and circadian research and academic sleep medicine. The Trainee Symposia Series and awards are open to SRS Trainee Members, along with the Leadership Workshop and SMMP. The Trainee Development Suite is open to all trainees, but registration is required. Trainees are also encouraged to join the SRS Trainee Facebook page to learn about informal social gatherings during the meeting.
The upcoming SLEEP 2017 meeting is the perfect place for networking with sleep researchers from around the world. However, for trainees and junior faculty, networking with potential mentors and new colleagues for the first time can be intimidating. So the Trainee Education and Advisory Committee (TEAC) has prepared the 10 Commandments of Networking to encourage SRS members to reach out during the SLEEP meeting. While this was originally developed with trainees in mind, we hope all SRS members will take a moment to review and be prepared should a trainee or junior faculty approach you during the conference.
The 22nd Annual Sleep Research Society Trainee Symposia Series will be held Sunday, June 4, 2017 at the Hynes Convention Center. The series is free to SRS student members. You must be registered for the SLEEP 2017 general session to participate. The deadline to register for the Trainee Symposia Series was April 21, 2017. View the full schedule.
Trainee Merit Awards have been determined for 2017 with applicants notified March 20, 2017. If you applied and did not receive notification, please contact SRS Coordinator, Barb Hoeft.

The half-day workshop will include speakers, interactive panels, and small group discussions. View the full schedule. Attendees have been notified. If you applied and did not receive notification, please contact SRS Coordinator, Barb Hoeft.
The Sleep Meeting Mentor Program offers a unique opportunity to interact with a faculty mentor in sleep and circadian research at the SLEEP 2017 meeting. Pairs have been notified. If you applied and did not receive notification, please contact SRS Coordinator, Barb Hoeft.
The SRS Trainee Development Suite offers trainee members an opportunity to network with other trainees, experienced researchers, and mentors in sleep and circadian science throughout SLEEP 2017. The Suite is open during the meeting, with the exception of breakfast and lunch sessions. View the full schedule, which are ticketed events. These ticketed sessions are free, but those who pre-registered and hold a ticket have priority.
The SRS Trainee Education Advisory Committee (TEAC) is excited for the first year of this program. Watch for follow-up!
