Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program

Tue, 01/31/2017 - 3:25pm -- C00254654

The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of early-career 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. Activities pursued by early-career faculty should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research. NSF encourages submission of CAREER proposals from early-career faculty at all CAREER-eligible organizations and especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and persons with disabilities to apply. Each year NSF selects nominees for the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from among the most meritorious recent CAREER awardees.

Policies for Action: Policy and Law Research to Build a Culture of Health

Tue, 01/31/2017 - 3:21pm -- C00254654

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has issued a call for proposals (CFP) to help build an evidence base for policies that can lead to a Culture of Health. Policies for Action: Policy and Law Research to Build a Culture of Health (P4A) seeks to engage long-standing health care, mental and behavioral health, and public health researchers, as well as experts in areas that have an influence on health, well-being and equity -- such as labor, criminal justice, education, transportation, housing and the built environment.

For 2017, in addition to supporting research on a broad range of topics, RWJF has set aside supplementary funds for research on actionable policies that support children’s healthy weight and/or reduce childhood obesity. The goals of this set-aside are the same as those of the overall call for proposals: to generate evidence that policymakers and other stakeholders can act upon with the aims of improving population health, well-being, and equity.

Cognitive Neuroscience (CogNeuro)

Tue, 01/31/2017 - 3:18pm -- C00254654

The National Science Foundation announces the area of Cognitive Neuroscience within the Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences in the Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences. Cognitive neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field of research to understand the neural basis of human cognition. The cognitive neuroscience program therefore seeks to fund highly innovative proposals that employ brain-based measurements in order to advance our understanding of the neural systems that mediate cognitive processes. Human cognitive science encompasses a wide range of topics, including attention, learning, memory, decision-making, language, social cognition, and emotions. Proposals will be considered that investigate a particular cognitive process using human brain data.

Research, Development, and Evaluation of Technologies to Improve School Safety

Thu, 01/26/2017 - 2:46pm -- C00254654

This solicitation will support projects that (1) demonstrate and evaluate existing technologies, or that (2) develop, demonstrate, and evaluate innovative technologies. Potential applicants will be directed to NIJ-funded reports published in 2016 that describe current uses of and identified needs for school safety technology. Key findings from these reports will be presented in the solicitation as will key findings from recent literature reviews commissioned by NIJ that address issues of effectiveness and perceptions of school security. Potential areas of emphasis may include interventions based on principles of crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED), data integration systems, benefit-cost analyses, and low cost technology options.

Research and Evaluation on Victims of Crime

Thu, 01/26/2017 - 2:45pm -- C00254654

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) has a longstanding history of collaborating with and supporting the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) on research, evaluation, and programmatic projects. Over the years, the shared priorities of OVC and NIJ have resulted in a number of collective projects, workshops, and research. In 2013, OVC began Vision 21: Transforming Victim Services which called for the development of research to build a body of evidence-based knowledge on victims and victimization. With this solicitation, NIJ is collaborating with OVC to build on areas of research that are of interest to both.

Juvenile Protective Factors and Their Effects on Aging (R03)

Thu, 01/26/2017 - 2:40pm -- C00254654

The purpose of this FOA is to invite pilot/feasibility projects for: 1) descriptive studies to identify putative juvenile protective factors, 2) experimental studies to test hypotheses about their effects on aging and 3) translational studies to characterize potential beneficial and adverse effects of maintaining or modulating the level of juvenile protective factors in adult life. Juvenile protective factors (JPFs), intrinsic to an immature organism, help to maintain or enhance certain physiological functions across all or some stages of postnatal development (i.e., segment of the life span between birth and sexual maturity), but diminish or disappear as the organism transitions from one maturational stage to the next. The loss or diminution of JPFs after a given stage of postnatal development or at time of sexual maturity may contribute to the onset of deleterious aging changes (e.g., compromised stem cell function and reparative capacity) across adulthood. This FOA is uniquely focused on animal and clinical studies which involve comparisons between juvenile versus adult states or between stages of postnatal development to identify putative JPFs and their effects on aging.

Pilot studies which involve comparisons between young and old adults will not be supported by this FOA.
