2019 Moore Inventor Fellows – Limited Submission RFP

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation announces the fourth competition for Moore Inventor Fellows. The foundation seeks to identify outstanding inventors and innovators who harness science and technology to enhance the conduct of scientific research, strengthen environmental conservation, or improve the experience and outcomes of patient care. The Moore Inventor Fellows program focuses on supporting scientist-inventors at a critical stage of research to capture opportunities that otherwise might be missed. We seek to provide freedom and support to promising inventors with the most compelling ideas to pursue creative work.

All candidates must be no more than ten years past receiving their Ph.D., M.D., M.S. or other terminal degree. A degree received on any date in 2009 is acceptable.

Syracuse University can nominate up to two candidates for this opportunity.

Funding Opportunity – 2019 Great Lakes Research Consortium Small Grants Program

Program Goals:

This small grants program provides seed funding for new, cooperative projects that improve our understanding of, and/or management of, New York’s Great Lakes basin. The program supports collaborative projects and grant awards can be used for basic or applied research and project planning that will lead to larger projects. Routine monitoring and one-time site-specific infrastructure projects are not appropriate topics for this program.

Deadline

Electronic versions of the proposals should be received no later than midnight on January 23, 2019.

Request for Applications: 2019 Small Equipment Grant

Online application form https://syracuse.infoready4.com/#competitionDetail/1777917

DEADLINE: 5:00 PM DECEMBER 10th

Research infrastructure often becomes a limiting factor for routine operations of laboratories and research programs. This is particularly true with relatively small-size equipment because such equipment often is more expensive than is affordable on a research grant, but less expensive than those that can be funded through extramural equipment grant programs. The Small Equipment Grant Program is designed to strengthen research capacity and capability at Syracuse University.

Request for Proposals: Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (PFP)

Online application form http://syracuse.infoready4.com
Application Deadline: January 15, 2019

Postdoctoral fellows are next generation educators, scholars, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and societal leaders. They are among the most important research personnel at universities. Postdoctoral fellows significantly contribute to the generation of scholarly research output of a university from the research they conduct during the fellowship period. As such, an institution’s postdoctoral fellow data is often used as an indicator of research activities. For example, the number of postdoctoral fellows is one of the major metrics used by Carnegie for classification of research universities. Postdoctoral fellows are not only important for research excellence, they are also an integral part of the driving force for high-quality college education. For instance, postdoctoral fellows are most often the trainers of graduate and undergraduate researchers; they work closely with tenure-track faculty to design research studies, set up research protocols, maintain research equipment, and provide day-to-day training of graduate and undergraduate students. The provision of such hands-on experiential learning by postdoctoral fellows has been demonstrated to be an effective path to increasing the success of undergraduate students.

In an effort to further strengthen our identification as a student-focused and research-most active (R1) university, Syracuse University has decided to invest $700,000 in dedicated postdoctoral support through its Invest Syracuse program. This document provides guidelines for the Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (PFP).

Request for Proposals: 2019 Collaborations for Unprecedented Success and Excellence (CUSE) Grant Program

The Office of Research is pleased to announce the request for proposals for the 2019 Collaboration for Unprecedented Success and Excellence (CUSE) Grant Program

Applications are now being accepted through Syracuse University’s Applicant Portal https://syracuse.infoready4.com

Deadline: 5:00 PM JANUARY 31, 2019

 Purpose: The purpose of this intramural grant program is to enhance interdisciplinary collaborations, to grow the research enterprise and enhance scholarship at Syracuse University in order to increase extramural funding and high-quality scholarly output. The program is designed to support faculty in becoming competitive in securing external funding and sponsorship. CUSE Grants should not be viewed as funds to conduct or complete projects, but rather to seed funding for faculty to build interdisciplinary teams, to produce preliminary data, and/or to seek help to obtain extramural funding that will advance knowledge and technologies through basic, translational and applied research. The grant program will support faculty research in all disciplines that span from basic, translational and applied sciences, social sciences, physical and life sciences, engineering, liberal arts, humanities, professional schools, creative research and various forms of all scholarly activities. The expectation is for the CUSE Grant Program funded faculty members to seek extramural support that will increase the national and international recognition of the awardees, their programs, and the university.
