SLEEP 2016 Trainee Opportunities
The SLEEP 2016 opportunities 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 the Trainee Development Suite are open to all, but
is required. Trainees are also encouraged to join the SRS Trainee Facebook page to learn about informal social gatherings during the meeting.
Competitive opportunities exist to support the trainee’s efforts to grow in the field, including the Grant Writing Workshop, the Mentor/Mentee Program, and the Trainee Merit Award. Please apply to the award/program(s) for which you are eligible and interested. However, depending on the number of applications received, it is possible that each trainee may only be selected for one of these opportunities (award/program). Please note, only applicants who are registered to attend the Trainee Symposia Series at SLEEP 2016 on Sunday June 12, 2016 will be considered for all awards/programs. Registration for both SLEEP 2016 and the Trainee Symposia Series will be verified prior to the final selection.
Trainee Merit Awards are only distributed at the conclusion of the Sunday workshops. No awards will be mailed.

On Saturday, June 11, a Grant Writing Workshop will be held for a select group of trainees who are seeking additional training and guidance in the grant writing process. The workshop will include practical information on the grant writing process, from initial planning to funding, a mock NIH review, as well as an opportunity to have specific aims reviewed by a faculty member. Applicants for the Grant Writing Workshop must provide a brief summary of their intent to apply for a grant by December 2016, include the award type (e.g., F/K, foundation, etc.), targeted funding agency, and the date of the targeted grant deadline. Further, it is expected that all attendees submit a draft, rough draft or outline of their specific aims two weeks before the workshop to be reviewed by a faculty member and bring a printed copy to the workshop. Joint Application is available

Trainee Development Suite
Monday, June 13-Wednesday, June 15, 2016
The Trainee Development Suite serves several purposes throughout the SLEEP meeting for Trainee members. It is intended to be a central location to network, let down, and connect/reconnect with colleagues and friends. New for 2016, during breakfast and lunch, programming has been designed to support trainees at all levels. Because of the limited number of seats for each meal, trainees may only be allowed to attend one breakfast/lunch session, although outside of these times the suite is open to all trainees. While these programs/meals are provided to trainees at no cost,
Trainee Social Events
There will be a number of events throughout the meeting that provide trainees the opportunity to network and socialize with one another. This will tentatively include a faculty/trainee softball game, as well as more informal gatherings. We encourage all trainees to join the
SRS Trainee Facebook Group
to stay up to date with these events.

SLEEP 2016 Mentor/Mentee Program
The Mentor/Mentee program offers a unique opportunity to be connected with a faculty mentor in sleep and circadian research at SLEEP 2016.
