APPLICATION DEADLINE 3/1/2019: International Sleep Research Training Program

January 28, 2019

The application deadline for this opportunity is March 1, 2019.

The International Sleep Research Training Program (ISRTP) will provide an opportunity for such trainees, especially those in developing countries, to train at major academic institutions so they can acquire sleep research skills and observe management of patients with sleep
disorders from experienced scientists and clinicians. In turn, the program will foster a cohort of future sleep research leaders who will keep the field of sleep research and medicine vibrant with their ideas, plans and goals.

The trainees will be matched to sleep research mentors at host academic institutions. Each trainee must have funds to support his or her trainee year at the host institution. The program will provide trainees with travel funds to participate in two major international sleep meetings. Selection of trainees will be based on their research plans; plans to further research in their home country; English communication skills; motivation; educational level; and availability of continued mentorship in their home countries.

The first class of trainees will start on July 1, 2019 and end on June 30, 2020. An application packet for interested trainees can be found here. The application deadline is March 1, 2019.

The application deadline is March 1, 2019.
