The grant is for $20,000, of which just over $10,000 is to be paid to a survey company who will conduct the data collection (quote already in place). The successful research team will develop the final survey, obtain ethics approval, work with the survey company regarding recruitment, analyse the data and write up a report by early May 2016. Publications of papers in peer-reviewed journals subsequent to the completed report is strongly encouraged.

EOIs are due 6th November 2015.

Research Recruitment Service

The Sleep Health Foundation has launched a new service for members to help researchers find volunteers for their sleep studies.

The foundation's website now has a page dedicated to sleep-related studies that can be easily accessed by people wanting to sign up. The page will link potential recruits with study organisers, boosting the pool of new volunteers.

All members can list their institutional ethics approved studies on the website and they will also be promoted on the foundation's social media sites. Some studies could also be promoted to the media, increasing exposure to new recruits even further.

If you want to list your sleep-related study please send full details of the study to admin@sleephealthfoundation.org.au, includng evidence of ethics approval, a brief overview of the key research question, a few sentences about what participants would be expected to do, location of the study, who is eligible to participate, who to contact and by what date.
