Statistics in Epidemiology Section Young Investigator Award

1 October 2014 218 views No Comment

The Section on Statistics in Epidemiology (SIE) invites applications from young investigators who will present their papers at JSM 2015 in Seattle, Washington. The awards honor the best papers by young investigators in statistics in epidemiology presented at JSM and are open to all current graduate students in statistics, biostatistics, and epidemiology, as well as recent graduates who earned their degrees no earlier than December 31, 2012. Each award consists of $800 to help defray travel costs to JSM. A reception will be held at the Seattle meeting to honor award recipients.

Preference will be given to papers with both methodological contributions and substantive epidemiological applications. Jointly authored papers are certainly acceptable, but the applicant is expected to be the lead author and present the work at JSM 2015. The presentation at JSM may be in a regular session, speed session, or poster session. Further, the presentation does not have to be in a session sponsored by SIE, nor must applicants necessarily be current members of SIE. The presentation at JSM must correspond to the paper receiving the award, however.

To apply for the award, submit a paper no later than December 15. Early submissions are encouraged. Along with the paper, include a cover letter stating where you are a current student or your year of graduation if you are a recent graduate. Submissions should be sent to Susan Shortreed at shortreed.s@ghc.org. Questions about the award can be addressed to Babette Brumback at brumback@ufl.edu.
