If you are considering applying for the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty, consider attending an upcoming CAREER program informational session. The deadline for CAREER submissions (NSF 22-586) is July 26th, so get your questions in early! Program directors from the BIO directorates and the CAREER Coordinating Committee will be available to answer your questions at the following sessions.
Please join the Biology Integration Institutes (BII) program for a webinar on December 13, 2022 from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST. There will be a short presentation, followed by an open Q&A session with cognizant Program Officers.
The BII Program supports diverse, collaborative teams that perform research, education and training on critical questions that span multiple disciplines within and beyond biology. The next deadline is February 21, 2023. For more information about previously funded awards under this program and registration for the webinar, see the links below.
On May 18, the Division of Molecular and Cellular Biosciences (MCB) joined the Division of Environmental Biology (DEB) to provide an informational Office Hour about the Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) (NSF 20-525). Attendees posted over 30 questions; a full transcript of those questions and responses, as well as a link to the presentation slides, are available on the DEB blog.
At MCB’s first Virtual Office Hour on October 9, MCB Division and Deputy Division Directors (Basil Nikolau and Theresa Good) as well as cluster leaders/representatives (Charlie Cunningham, CDF; Karen Cone, GM; Wilson Francisco, MB; David Rockcliffe, SSB) will give an overview of the MCB division, its clusters, and their respective priorities. The meeting will be held via WebEx. Participants may submit questions via the Q&A function. Questions should be broad and of potential interest to others.
At each Virtual Office Hour thereafter, MCB plans to discuss a specific topic, followed by an open question and answer session. Registered participants may post questions during the Virtual Office Hour. Click on the hotlink to register – and be sure to select “Join by browser” when the option appears on your screen.
