Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation -
Damon Runyon Quantitative Biology Fellowship Award
Full announcement
This award program is designed to encourage quantitative scientists (trained in fields such as mathematics, computer science, physics, engineering, or related) to pursue research careers in computational biology under the joint mentorship of leaders in both computational science (“dry lab”) and cancer biology (“wet lab”). By investing in this area, Damon Runyon will bring additional attention to the importance of these specially trained scientists for making meaningful progress in cancer biology. December 1, 2020
American Association of University Women -
Research Publication Grant in Engineering, Medicine and Science
Full announcement
For women conducting basic research in engineering, medicine or the physical or biological sciences and who have a doctorate degree in one of those fields. Grantees are required to publish their research in a scholarly scientific publication and be listed as a primary author. The grants are for tenure track, part-time and temporary faculty, as well as new and established researchers at universities. Tenured professors are not eligible. December 1, 2020
Carbon Cycle Science
Full announcement
Proposals for research focused on carbon stocks and fluxes between and within freshwater, marine systems, and land ecosystems, and their exchange with the atmosphere. It also targets improving understanding of carbon cycle processes and feedbacks in critical ecosystems that are particularly vulnerable to environmental change. Substantive use of remote sensing and/or airborne data is required in all studies. December 3, 2020
Marine Debris
Full announcement
The NOAA Marine Debris Program supports the development and implementation of locally-driven, marine debris assessment, removal and prevention projects that benefit coastal habitat, waterways, and NOAA trust resources. Projects awarded thro?ugh this grant competition will create long-term, quantifiable ecological benefits and habitat improvements for NOAA trust resources through on-the-ground marine debris removal activities, with highest priority for those targeting derelict fishing gear and other medium- and large-scale debris. The typical funding level for the federal share of project awards ranges from $50,000 to $150,000. December 4, 2020
National AI Research Institutes
Full announcement
This program is a joint government effort between the National Science Foundation (NSF), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science & Technology Directorate (S&T), and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). New to the program this year are contributions from partners in U.S. industry who share in the government’s goal to advance national competitiveness through National AI Research Institutes. This year’s industry partners are Accenture, Amazon, Google, and Intel Corporation. This program solicitation invites proposals for full institutes that have a principal focus in one or more of the following themes, detailed in the Program Description: Theme 1: Human-AI Interaction and Collaboration Theme 2: AI Institute for Advances in Optimization Theme 3: AI and Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Theme 4: Advances in AI and Computer and Network Systems Theme 5: AI Institute in Dynamic Systems Theme 6: AI-Augmented Learning Theme 7: AI to Advance Biology Theme 8: AI-Driven Innovation in Agriculture and the Food System December 4, 2020
Western IPM Center -
2021 Annual Grant Program
Full announcement
The Center works to reduce the risks that pests and pest-management practices pose to people, the environment and the economy of the American West by supporting the development and adoption of integrated pest management. Our vision is a healthier West with fewer pests. Center grants provide funds to complement other federal, state and private funding sources by supporting project initiation, outreach and implementation, work groups, and IPM planning document development. We encourage projects that extend IPM practices to stakeholders who will use IPM strategies to decrease the risks associated with pests and pest management while addressing Center goals. Projects must start March 1, 2021 and end by February 28, 2022. December 4, 2020
PepsiCo -
Moisture barriers for packaging dry goods
Full announcement
PepsiCo is seeking novel barrier layers and coatings for use with bio-based films that achieve moisture barrier requirements of packaged dry foods. We are seeking barrier materials and coatings for bio-based films that achieve the high moisture barrier requirements for packaging dry foods without sacrificing biodegradability. The barrier material should be able to be co-extruded with our core resins to form a skin layer that can anchor metal films or other functional coatings. Coatings that are applied as primer layers or top coats over metal are also acceptable. Possible partnerships include, but are not limited to, sponsored research, supplier agreement, consulting engagement or licensing. December 6, 2020
Planetary Science Early Career Award Program
Full announcement
The Planetary Science Early Career Award (ECA) program supports the professional development of outstanding early-career scientists in areas relevant to the Planetary Science Division (PSD). Support from this program will allow promising individuals to play an increasing and meaningful role in the planetary science community. December 8, 2020
