|JSID/SID Young Investigator Collegiality Awards|
The Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) is pleased to promote a continued joint initiative between the Japanese Society for Investigative Dermatology (JSID) and the SID. The Young Investigator Collegiality Travel Awards are designed to promote the academic career development of researchers and clinician-scientists in investigative dermatology.
The joint vision of the two societies is to help promising researchers obtain international exposure of their work and thereby enhance their professionalism and sense of achievement. The hope is that this will be a great way to stimulate academic exchange as well as new professional interactions and collaborations.
The program: The intent is for a young researcher in the US (who is active in SID activities), to submit an abstract (new data) for presentation at the 2019 JSID Meeting. Either en route to the JSID Meeting or immediately after, the SID will support travel to visit a department or institute at which the individual could present some data and experience academic discussions/feedback (as well as local hospitality).
Eligibility: To be eligible for consideration of these travel grants, applicants must be a member of the SID (in good standing) and active in investigative dermatology in a US-based department, laboratory, or institution. The applicant must also be employed as a Resident, PhD student, Post-Doctoral Fellow, or Assistant Professor.
Selection: A committee made up of leaders from both the JSID and SID will choose up to three applicants for the award.
The award: The successful applicants will be awarded a travel grant in the amount of $1,500 to assist with travel and accommodation expenses. The JSID will waive the registration fee associated with the 44th Annual Meeting of the JSID to be held November 8-10, 2019 in Aomori, Japan. There will also be an opportunity for the successful applicant to present and discuss their data when visiting a department in Japan. A senior member of your department should help to assist with the coordination of the visit to a host department. Any additional costs associated with the travel will be borne on the applicant or by the host department.
Applications are to include the following for consideration:
Submission: Apply by email (with needed application materials attached) to email@example.com or via fax at 216/579-9333.
Deadline: The deadline for applications is June 16, 2019
Notification: Awardees will be notified by a representative of the SID no later than July 2019.
