Summer SWIM at Pittsburgh


The University of Pittsburgh Center for Sleep and Circadian Science (CSCS) is accepting applications for its inaugural Summer SWIM: Sleep and Circadian Workshop on Indispensable Methods, August 10-14, 2020. Individuals from groups under-represented in sleep and circadian science are strongly encouraged to apply.

The Summer SWIM is an immersive one-week training program addressing state-of-the-art methodologies in human and animal research on sleep and circadian rhythms. The program aims to provide state-of-the art didactic and experiential learning opportunities addressing sleep and circadian research methods; to demonstrate how these methods are applied in translational sleep and circadian research studies; and to foster career development and networking for early stage investigators.

The intended audience is graduate students, post-baccalaureates, post-docs, medical students, residents, and fellows, and junior faculty who are interested in pursuing sleep and circadian research. Prior sleep and circadian science experience is not required.
