The Trainee Symposia Series includes seminars on the science of sleep and circadian rhythms, career development, grant writing, a leadership workshop, mentorship opportunities, breakfast and luncheon expert sessions, as well as social activities for trainees to foster a collegial atmosphere.
Meeting date and location determined by Trainee Pairs
The SRS Trainee Education Advisory Committee (TEAC) is excited for the third year of this program—a free networking opportunity for trainees. International and domestic participants who apply will be matched based on research interests into Trainee Pairs, and are encouraged to meet during Trainee Day.
Trainee Networking Development Suite
Open throughout SLEEP 2019
Network with other trainees, experienced researchers, and mentors in sleep and circadian science. During breakfast and lunch, up to 50 trainees will be welcomed on a first-come, first-serve basis to enjoy a complimentary meal and beverages. This new and improved space will remain an ‘open space’ during other times of the meeting.

The Trainee Education and Advisory Committee (TEAC) has prepared this resource 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.
Trainees are encouraged to join the SRS/AASM Trainee Members Group on Facebook to learn about informal social gatherings during the meeting.
SRS competitive awards exist to support a trainee’s effort to grow in the field. Applications for SRS Awards are limited to SRS Trainee Members. Please apply to all awards for which you are eligible and interested, attending to the requirements in the online application. Each application will be reviewed on its own merit. Only applicants who are registered for the Trainee Symposia Series at SLEEP 2019 will be considered.
Awards Application Deadline: February 3, 2019 at 11:59 PM
