Junior Faculty
The SRBR Junior Faculty Research Award recognizes exemplary scholarly work in Chronobiology by principal investigators at the Assistant Professor level (untenured). This award is typically given to researchers having published one or more distinguished research papers as a corresponding author, based on work in their own laboratory. Decisions will be made prior to the 2018 SRBR meeting and will be announced during the banquet of the 2018 SRBR meeting (as part of the Presidential address), where each awardee will receive a plaque.

Nominations may be made by any SRBR member, who is a tenured principal investigator, excluding self-nominations and nominations of former lab members. Nominations must include a nomination letter outlining the nominee’s accomplishments and the nominee’s CV.


Directors’ Award
The goals of the SRBR Directors’ Awards are to honor and thank people for their broad contributions to the field of Chronobiology. People could be recognized due to:

a) Service, be it to the Society, the field or outreach.
b) Trail-blazing research, i.e., if their discoveries opened a subfield or a new area in chronobiology.
c) Training (mentorship at any level).

Nominations may be made by any SRBR member, who is a tenured principal investigator, excluding self-nominations and nominations of former lab members. Nominations must include a nomination letter outlining the nominee’s accomplishments and the nominee’s CV.
