The Sleep Research Society offers trainee members a number of different opportunities, both during the annual SLEEP meeting and throughout the year. These include:
The annual SLEEP meeting offers 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 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 always be prepared should a trainee or junior faculty approach you.
The 23rd Annual Sleep Research Society Trainee Symposia Series will be held Sunday, June 3, 2018 in Baltimore, MD. The series is free to SRS student members. You must be registered for the SLEEP 2018 general session to participate. Registration will open in mid-January, 2017 with a mid-April deadline.
The Sleep Meeting Mentor Program offers a unique opportunity to interact with a faculty mentor in sleep and circadian research at the SLEEP 2018 meeting. More details will be available in January of 2018.
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 2018. The Suite is open during the meeting, with the exception of breakfast and lunch sessions.
The SRS Trainee Education Advisory Committee (TEAC) is excited for the first year of this program. Watch for follow-up!
