ISU's Sarah Godsey Receives Prestigious NSF Award
Idaho State University geosciences Assistant Professor Sarah Godsey has received one of the "most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty" awarded by the National Science Foundation. Her award includes more than $500,000 to study streams and stream channels for five years.
The award is part of the NSF's Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER). According the NSF, the award is given to faculty "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 title of Godsey's CAREER award is "Active Learning Across Interfaces: Controls on Flow Intermittency and Water Age in Temporary Streams."
NSF Program Solicitation: INFEWS
Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy and Water Systems (INFEWS).
Funded awards will foster collaboration among research communities and accelerate discovery and innovation at the nexus of food, energy and water systems.
The overarching goal of INFEWS is to catalyze well-integrated interdisciplinary and convergent research to transform scientific understanding of the FEW nexus (integrating all three components rather than addressing them separately), in order to improve system function and management, address system stress, increase resilience, and ensure sustainability.
EPSCoR Research Fellows (RII Track-4)
Full proposal deadline: Feb 28, 2017
Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) Track-4 provides opportunities for non-tenured investigators to further develop their individual research potential through extended collaborative visits to the nation's premier private, governmental, or academic research centers. Through these visits, the EPSCoR Research Fellows will be able to learn new techniques, benefit from access to unique equipment and facilities, and shift their research toward transformative new directions.
PIs for all RII Track-4 proposals must hold a non-tenured faculty appointment or its close equivalent, either in the form of a pre-tenure tenure-track position or a long-term non-tenure-track position. There is a limit of three proposal submissions per eligible institution.
Informational webinars for RII Track-4 are planned 2:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on November 29, 2016 and November 30, 2016. Research administrators and potential PIs at EPSCoR-eligible institutions are encouraged to participate on one of these webinars; further details for webinar access will follow soon.
Questions regarding the new EPSCoR Research Fellows solicitation/program may be directed to Dr. Timothy VanReken (email@example.com; 703-292-7378).
