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.

This award recognizes an outstanding research effort by a student in the field of sleep research.

The basis for evaluation of candidates is the scientific merit of a single publication in a peer-reviewed journal. The candidate should be the first author, and the article must be published or officially accepted for publication by the application deadline.

This honorarium is made possible by donations to the CSS student fund. The award consists of a $500 honorarium. The award winner will be announced at the Canadian Sleep Society Annual General Meeting.

To apply, candidates must follow the guidelines and conditions outlined below. The paper does not have to be published in the same year as the application. Repeat applications from unsuccessful applicants from previous years are encouraged. The CSS Student Outstanding Achievement Award can only be received once by an individual.

Deadline for submission:
August 1, 2019

Eligibility:

  • The applicant must be a full-time student registered at a Canadian university, or a post-doctoral student within 1 year of degree completion, at both the time of the publication and the application.
  • Applicants are expected to have a current membership to the CSS prior to application for this award.

Submission requirements:

  • Send a copy of the meeting abstract (CSS or SLEEP) and confirmation of its acceptance
  • Applicants are expected to have a current membership to the CSS prior to application for this award.
