NSF: Launching Early-Career Academic Pathways in the Mathematical and Physical Sciences (LEAPS-MPS)

Synopsis of Program: With emphasis in helping to launch the careers of pre-tenure faculty in Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) fields at minority-serving institutions (MSIs), predominantly undergraduate institutions (PUIs), and Carnegie Research 2 (R2) universities, and with the goal of achieving excellence through diversity, the Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences hereby announces a call for Launching Early-Career Academic Pathways (LEAPS-MPS) proposals.

DOE Announces $30M for Research to Secure Domestic Supply Chain of Critical Elements and Minerals

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced up to $30 million to support scientific research that will ensure American businesses can reliably tap into a domestic supply of critical elements and minerals, such as lithium, cobalt and nickel, needed to produce clean energy technologies. Currently, the U.S. is grappling with chronic shortages in the domestic supply of these critical materials, forcing the country to rely on imported materials.

DoE Announces $34.5M for Data Science and Computation Tools to Advance Climate Solutions

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced up to $34.5 million to harness cutting-edge research tools for new scientific discoveries, including clean energy and climate solutions. Two new funding opportunities will support researchers using data science and computation-based methods—including artificial intelligence and machine learning—to tackle basic science challenges, advance clean energy technologies, improve energy efficiency, and predict extreme weather and climate patterns.

NIH Changes to Biosketch

NIH recently announced some changes to the Biosketch that are effective for due dates on or after May 25, 2021. Beginning with applications submitted on or after January 25, 2022, failure to follow this new guidance may cause NIH to withdraw the application from consideration.

NEH Summer Stipends Program Webinar

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) will be offering a webinar for administrators and prospective applicants, introducing this highly competitive, limited submission program focused on junior faculty, describing the application and nomination process, and offering application-writing suggestions. There will be a chance to ask questions, captions will be available, and the webinar will be recorded so others can watch it later.

Webinar for Junior Investigators Writing NIH Grants

This webinar, hosted by the National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN), will address best practices for effective grantsmanship, approaches for competitive applications, common mistakes made by junior investigators and tips to increase chances for success. The focus will be on NIH’s research grants, especially the common R01 funding mechanism.
Date: Tuesday, March 16
Time: 12:00 – 2:00 pm
