CSS Roger Broughton Young Investigator Award 2019

The Roger Broughton Young Investigator Award honours the contributions of Dr. Roger Broughton, founding President of the Canadian Sleep Society (1986-88), and one of the founding figures of Canadian sleep research.

The award will be made to a young scientist for important early career research contributions, rather than a single submitted abstract or paper. The winner will receive an award of $1,000.

The award will be made on the basis of an assessment by a distinguished panel of judges including former Presidents of the CSS and the past winners of this award. This is not intended to be a post-doctoral level award, but instead is open to members of the CSS who are conducting research at a Canadian institution (i.e., in a junior Faculty position). Eligibility is restricted to candidates up to seven years after completion of a terminal degree (Ph.D. or M.D.) at the time of application.

Deadline for submission:
August 1, 2019

Submission requirements:

  • A current curriculum vitae
  • Two reference letters (sent directly to the CSS by the referees) and
  • A one-page (500 word) statement summarizing their early career contribution to sleep research and its significance.
  • Applicants are expected to have a current membership to the CSS prior to application for this award.
