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 (tvanreke@nsf.gov; 703-292-7378).
