Upcoming Events

Morphing Matter: Design Bioinspired Transformative Material (MAE Graduate Seminar)

  • Dr. Lining Yao, Assistant Professor of Human Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University will be presenting on Friday, Sept 29 from 2:15 to 3:15 pm at Life Science Building 001 (LSB).

Funding Opportunities

FY 2017 Continuation of Solicitation for the Office of Science Financial Assistance Program (DOE)

  • Sep 30; The Office of Science (SC) of the DOE hereby announces its continuing interest in receiving grant applications for support of work in the following program areas: Advanced Scientific Computing Research, Basic Energy Sciences, Biological and Environmental Research, Fusion Energy Sciences, High Energy Physics, and Nuclear Physics.

Engineering of Biomedical Systems (NSF)

  • Oct 1; The goal of the Engineering of Biomedical Systems (EBMS) program is to provide research opportunities to develop novel ideas into discovery-level and transformative projects that integrate engineering and life sciences in solving biomedical problems that serve humanity in the long-term.

Heliophysics Supporting Research (NASA)

  •  Oct 12; The NRA covers all aspects of basic and applied supporting research and technology in space and Earth sciences.

Fossil Fuel Large-Scale Pilots (DOE)  

  • Oct 19; This FOA seeks applications for projects to design, construct, and operate large-scale pilots of transformational coal technologies aimed at enabling step change improvements in coal powered system performance, efficiency, and cost of electricity.

Thermal Transport Processes (NSF)

  • Oct 20; The Thermal Transport Processes (TTP) program supports engineering research projects that lay the foundation for new discoveries in thermal transport phenomena. These projects should either develop new fundamental knowledge or combine existing knowledge in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat and mass transfer to probe new areas of innovation.

Division of Physics: Investigator-Initiated Research Projects (NSF)

  •  Oct 25; The Division of Physics (PHY) supports physics research and the preparation of future scientists in the nation’s colleges and universities across a broad range of physics disciplines that span scales of space and time from the largest to the smallest and the oldest to the youngest.

Scalable Parallelism in the Extreme (NSF)

  • Jan 09, 2018; The Scalable Parallelism in the Extreme (SPX) program aims to support research addressing the challenges of increasing performance in this modern era of parallel computing. This will require a collaborative effort among researchers in multiple areas, from services and applications down to micro-architecture.

Centers without Walls for Collaborative Research in the Epilepsies: Functional Evaluation of Human Genetic Variants (U54) (NIH)

  • Jan 16, 2018; The purpose of FOA is to encourage cooperative agreement (U54) applications from multidisciplinary groups of investigators to accelerate the rate of progress in determining the functional, pharmacological, neuronal network and whole animal consequences of genetic variants discovered in patients with various types of epilepsy and to develop strategies for establishing diagnostic criteria and identifying potential targets for intervention.

Engineering for Civil Infrastructure (NSF)

  • Jan 24, 2018; The ECI program focuses on the physical infrastructure, such as the soil-foundation-structure-envelope-nonstructural building system; geostructures; and underground facilities.

Engineering Design and System Engineering (NSF)

  • Jan 24, 2018; The EDSE program supports fundamental research into the basic processes and phenomena of engineering design and systems engineering. The program seeks proposals leading to improved understanding about how processes, organizational structure, social interactions, strategic decision making, and other factors impact success in the planning and execution of engineering design and systems engineering projects.

BRAIN Initiative: Tools to target, identify and characterize non-neuronal cells in the brain (NIH)

  •  Feb 1, 2018; The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement [FOA] submitted through the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neuro-technologies (BRAIN) Initiative is to stimulate the development and validation of novel tools and analytical methods to target, identify and characterize non-neuronal cells in the brain.

Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF)

  • The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education. Deadlines are in October. Actual dates vary by discipline.
