Overview and Award Criteria

The CSEP Young Investigator Award (YIA) is presented annually to an outstanding CSEP member who received received their first faculty appointment in the last 7 calendar years. Any medical or parental leave(s) taken since receiving their appointment will not count towards the time limit. The individual must be acknowledged to have an excellent reputation throughout Canada and to have achieved notable international recognition. Candidates shall have demonstrated evidence of a sustainable program of research funding beyond the first grant cycle, publications in peer-reviewed journals that establish the candidate as an independent scientist, and evidence of training of highly qualified personnel. The candidate must be a CSEP member at the time of nomination.

The individual must be acknowledged to have an excellent reputation throughout Canada and to have achieved notable international recognition. Candidates shall have demonstrated evidence of a sustainable program of research funding beyond the first grant cycle, publications in peer-reviewed journals that establish the candidate as an independent scientist, and evidence of training of highly qualified personnel. Clinical research funded by CIHR should be viewed equally meritorious as basic science funded by NSERC, rather than comparing monetary value of grants which is typically much higher for clinical research. The nomination may also include evidence of research impact with respect to how the early research program as an independent scientist has achieved recognition or influence in a field, community or policy. The nomination will demonstrate how the candidate’s research has aligned with CSEP’s Vision and Mission Statement.

The candidate must be a CSEP member at the time of nomination and have been a member of CSEP before the current year. The nomination will include a statement about any evidence that demonstrates how the applicant has contributed to CSEP activities. 


Nomination Procedure

Any member of CSEP may submit nominations on behalf of the applicant. A complete nomination will consist of the following:

  1. Completion of an YIA 2020 Nomination Form which includes:
    1. the nominator’s contact information;
    2. the nominee’s contact information;
    3. information regarding when and where the PhD or MD was obtained; and date of first faculty appointment
    4. a list of up to four sample publications and brief comment on the significance of each;
  2. A maximum two-page (~600 word) letter in support of the candidate’s nomination.
  3. A copy of the candidate’s curriculum vitae using the “Common CV” format.
  4. One copy of each sample publication referenced on the Nomination Form.
Nominees who are not selected automatically remain in the pool for an additional year (if they agree);

Re-nominations (within a three-year period) may be submitted in the form of an update to the original submission, as long as the nominee continues to meet the award eligibility criteria.

Deadline for nominations: July 31, 2020

Selection Procedure

An evaluation committee will review all applications received prior to the submission deadline, which is usually the same date as the AGM abstract submission deadline. The committee will consist of the Vice Chair Research (or their designate in case of conflict), Director Academic, and one other senior CSEP member. Nominators may be contacted by the committee to provide additional information on the nominees. The award recipient and other nominees will be contacted by the CSEP Chair and informed of the competition results at least two months prior to the AGM.

Award Format

The award recipient will be expected to give a 30-minute presentation based on his/her research during the AGM. The award includes an invitation from Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism to write a review. In addition, Canadian Science Publishing will provide free open access for such a publication. The recipient will receive a framed citation, complimentary registration, an honorarium and reimbursement of his/her expenses to attend the conference.

 

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Statement

The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in all aspects of the Society's business. This includes, but is not limited to, applications for membership, awards and grant review, and employment and volunteer positions. CSEP welcomes applications and participation from women, members of racialized groups/visible minorities, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of any sexual orientation, and persons of any gender identity or gender expression. In its commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion, members of the Society, its committees and employees and/or any award/grant recipients are expected to uphold the same policies in their work related to the Society.
