Navigating the FRC Guidelines and Application Process: Katie Watkins-Wendell, Asst. VP for Research is once again offering training on the successful navigation of the FRC guidelines and application process for the upcoming 2014-2015 Summer Fellowship Competition.

Training sessions will be offered twice. Applicants only need to attend one session.

Tuesday, December 2, Student Union 312, 11:30am-1pm

Wednesday, December 3, Student Union 312, 11:30am-1pm

Please RSVP to Kelly Meyer at RschSrvsGA8@uakron.edu and designate which session you plan to attend.

Sundress Academy for the Arts: Sundress Academy

Deadline: Not Specified

The Sundress Academy for the Arts (SAFTA) accepts applications for short-term artists’ residencies in creative writing, visual art, film/theater, music, and more. These residencies are designed to give artists time and space to complete their creative projects in a quiet and productive environment.

Golden Field Office/Department of Energy: Wind Energy – Bat Impact Minimization Technologies and Field Testing Opportunities

Deadline: November 21, 2014

The intent of this funding opportunity is to support research and development projects that advance the technical readiness of bat impact mitigation and minimization technologies. This FOA will also support the field testing and evaluation of near‐commercial bat impact mitigation technologies, which if successful, will provide regulators and wind facility owner‐operators with viable and cost effective tools to reduce their impacts on bats and ease the regulatory & financial uncertainty related to the development and long‐term operation of wind farms in bat habitat.

Directorate for Engineering/NSF: Systems Science (SYS)

Deadline: February 17, 2015

The Systems Science (SYS) program supports fundamental research leading to a theoretical foundation for design and systems engineering. In particular, the Systems Science program seeks intellectual advances in which underlying theories (such as probability theory, decision theory, game theory, organizational sociology, behavioral economics or cognitive psychology) are integrated and abstracted to develop explanatory models for design and systems engineering in a general, domain-independent fashion. Ideally, the explanatory models, derived from the underlying theoretical foundations will lead to testable hypotheses. Based on collected evidence supporting or falsifying the hypotheses, new insights are gained allowing the explanatory models to be refined or updated.

Directorate for Engineering/NSF: Engineering and Systems Design

Deadline: February 17, 2015

The Engineering and Systems Design (ESD) program supports fundamental research leading to new engineering and systems design methods and practices for specific global contexts. In particular, ESD seeks intellectual advances in which the theoretical foundations underlying design and systems engineering are operationalized into rigorous and pragmatic methods for a specific context. In addition, the program funds the rigorous theoretical and empirical characterization of new or existing methods for design and systems engineering, identifying in which global contexts and under which assumptions these methods are effective and efficient. Such a global context includes both a domain (such as energy systems, consumer products, cyber-physical systems) and an economic, socio-political, environmental and technological context.

National Cancer Institute/NIH/DHHS: Physical Sciences-Oncology Network (PS-ON): Physical Sciences-Oncology Projects (PS-OP) (U01)

Deadline:January 15, 2015

National Institutes of Health (NIH) and its participating Institutes and Centers invite applications for Physical Science-Oncology Projects (PS-OP). The goal of the PS-OPs is to foster the convergence of physical sciences approaches and perspectives with cancer research to advance our understanding of cancer biology and oncology by forming small transdisciplinary teams of physical scientists and cancer biologists/physician scientists. Examples of physical scientists may include engineers, physicists, mathematicians, chemists, and computer scientists. The PS-OPs, individually and as a collaborative Network along with other PS-OPs and the Physical Sciences-Oncology Centers (PS-OC), will support transdisciplinary research that: (1) establishes a physical sciences perspective within the cancer research community; (2) facilitates team science and field convergence at the intersection of physical sciences and cancer research; and (3) collectively tests physical sciences-based experimental and theoretical concepts of cancer and promotes innovative solutions to address outstanding questions in cancer research. This program will use the NIH U01 Research Project Cooperative Agreements award mechanism.
