Military Suicide Research Consortium Pre-Conference Research Training Day

The Military Suicide Research Consortium (MSRC) co-Directors, Drs. Gutierrez and Joiner, are pleased to announce the fifth annual MSRC pre-conference research training day. The MSRC pre-conference research training day is to be held Wednesday, April 26th prior to the 2017 American Association of Suicidology (AAS) conference, in Phoenix, AZ. This opportunity is available to up to 30 trainees who at the time of application are students or research fellows across levels of training (graduate to post-doctoral). The purpose of the training day is to provide those with an interest in developing their skills as military/Veteran suicide researchers with intensive training to move a specific relevant project forward. Project ideas do not necessarily need to utilize Veteran/military samples, but must have relevance for those populations. For example, a study of adult psychiatric patient findings could apply to either group.

The core features of the Research Training Day include a) a didactic session including a presentation on grant writing, grants mechanisms, data analysis, and research ethics; b) small group meetings of mentors and fellows to discuss fellows’ grant applications, research papers, and career issues; c) and a networking luncheon. A Travel Award of $1,000 is provided to support travel expenses, registration fees for the conference, and accommodations.

A top-notch faculty will provide the didactic sessions and serve as mentors. In addition to Drs. Gutierrez and Joiner, faculty will include MSRC members and funded Principal Investigators.

Applications and supporting materials are to be submitted online at Applications are due on or before Friday, January 13, 2017. Applicants will be contacted regarding their award status by Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
