The selected candidate from Hopkins should be
a tenured professor or associate professor whose research focus is in
the studies of brain function in health and disease. NOTE: The
ideal candidate should have current major NIH or other peer-reviewed
funding or evidence of this type of support during the past three years.
Studies should be related to the areas of normal human brain development
or specifically identified disease states. This includes molecular and
clinical neuroscience as well as studies of neural, sensory, motor,
cognitive, behavioral and emotional functioning in health and disease.
The proposal should profile a new research project that has not yet
received funding from other sources. This grant should not be used for
"bridge funding." The Foundation anticipates the SIA program
will provide support of $300,000 in grant--maximum. Each award will
be limited to $150,000 (direct costs) for a two-year grant period from
the specified dates provided by the Foundation upon approval of the
proposal/application. More specific information about this award is

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has recently announced an amendment to the IGERT solicitation (NSF 11-533). This solicitation amendment is an opportunity for researchers to apply for a new track in the NSF's IGERT program as an instrument to address the training and education needs in computational and data enabled science and engineering (CDS&E) and cyberinfrastructure research.
The IGERT program was developed to meet the challenges
of educating U.S. Ph.D. scientists and engineers with interdisciplinary
backgrounds, knowledge in selected disciplines, as well as technical,
professional, and personal skills. This program establishes new models
for graduate education and training in a productive setting for collaborative
research that exceeds the traditional disciplinary boundaries. It enables
diversity in student participation and contributions to "a world-class,
broadly inclusive, and globally engaged science and engineering workforce."
The goal of this IGERT solicitation is to support new models in graduate
education in which students are engaged in an environment that supports
innovative learning through "hands-on experience" and how
their own research may benefit society. In addition, students will have
the opportunity to learn processes for the successful implementation
of their contributions. The anticipated funding amount is $6,000,000
(Up to $3.3M per award during five years-contingent upon availability
of funds). More specific information about this solicitation amendment
is available at: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2012/
Johns Hopkins can submit one proposal for this
program. Interested candidates should send a brief project summary (1-2
pages) with a budget summary, the CV of the principal investigator,
the names of all co-investigators and a completed JHU Submission Cover
Sheet (contact firstname.lastname@example.org
for a copy) to email@example.com no
later than Friday, May 11, 2012 for an internal review. The selected
PI will need to submit a Letter of Intent to NSF by June 4, 2012. The
full project proposal must be submitted to NSF by August 6, 2012.
Translational Research Partnership Award
