Trainee days

The SRBR Trainee Day is to foster the growth and success of the next generation of biological rhythm researchers by providing opportunities for scientific and career development of trainees spanning the undergraduate to postdoctoral levels. This day-long event which is held prior to the meeting allows trainees to interact with one another and established leaders in the field in a relaxed and informal setting, helping to establish connections and foundations that can enrich the main conference. Only those attendees who have pre-registered will be able to participate in Trainee Day.

Many recurring chronobiology meetings start off with a trainee day, specifically targeted to students and trainees that are new to the field of chronobiology. This includes the biennial meetings of the SRBR, EBRS, and GRS Chronobiology.


Coursera course – Circadian clocks: how rhythms structure life

A free online course that you can follow at your own pace covering the basics of chronobiology developed by researchers at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in München. The material includes video lectures, reading material, and exercises. You can find the course and register here.

BioClock Studio

The BioClock Studio is an initiative from the Center for Circadian Biology at UC San Diego and contains  educational material on chronobiology developed by undergraduate students. The material includes tutorials, videos, infographics and games that can be freely explored here.


Open data sources for undergraduate projects

A collection of research tools related to biological rhythms that can be freely used for undergraduate research projects can be found here.


iBiology lectures on circadian rhythms

iBiology’s mission is to convey the excitement of modern biology and the process by which scientific discoveries are made in the form of open-access free videos. Several lectures are available covering circadian rhythms, each of them given by leading scientists in the field of chronobiology. Check them out here.


SRBR YouTube channel

The SRBR YouTube channel contains a series of videos about biological rhythms and the scientists that study these rhythms, including a recording of the lectures given by the Nobel prize winners at the 2018 SRBR meeting.


Teaching video on biological rhythms

Dr. Eric Bittman from the University of Massachusetts has recorded a lecture covering the basics of biological rhythms, which is freely available on the SRBR website here.
