- NSF Weekly Update
- The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity
that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards for faculty
members beginning their independent careers who have the potential to serve as academic
role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their
department or organization. The intent of the program is to provide stable support
at a sufficient level and duration to enable awardees to develop careers not only
as outstanding researchers but also as educators demonstrating commitment to teaching,
learning, and dissemination of knowledge. NSF encourages submission of CAREER proposals
from eligible early-career faculty at all CAREER-eligible organizations, especially
women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and persons with disabilities.
Please visit the program page for eligibility information along with the program solicitation and FAQs. A presentation on the NSF CAREER funding program from the December 3, 2020, NSF Fall 2020 Virtual Grants Conference can be viewed at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcojeEoz4AI&feature=youtu.be.

- Call for Rapid Access Proposals for COVID-19 Research Using Neutron Scattering Resources (https://snsapp1.sns.ornl.gov/xprod_ro/f?p=109:26)
With the continuing spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Energy Basic Energy Sciences neutron sources will provide remote rapid access to support research into the COVID-19 virus and the search for effective diagnostics and therapies. Beamlines that will be made available at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) and High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, include neutron macromolecular crystallography, small angle scattering, reflectometry, spectroscopy and imaging beamlines.
Researchers who would like to use these resources should submit a short rapid access proposal, outlining experiment aims and scope, at https://snsapp1.sns.ornl.gov/xprod_ro/f?p=109:26. A facility scientist will contact you regarding your proposal within 2 days. Scientific and technical questions should be sent to Dean Myles at email@example.com.
