Plasma Physics – November 15, 2021
Supports research that can be categorized by several broad, sometimes overlapping, sub-areas of the discipline, including: magnetized plasmas in the laboratory, space, and astrophysical environments; high energy density plasmas; low temperature plasmas; dusty, ultra-cold, and otherwise strongly coupled plasmas; non-neutral plasmas; and intense field-matter interaction in plasmas. $300-$500K for 3-5 years.
Algebra and Number Theory – October 8, 2021
Supports research in algebra, algebraic and arithmetic geometry, number theory, and representation theory. Up to ~$350K, 3 years.
Dear Colleague Letter: Advancing Discovery with AI-Powered Tools (ADAPT) in the Mathematical and Physical Sciences – rolling deadline
For the development or new application of AI-inspired tools and techniques, with opportunities in, but not limited to, four focus areas: (i) modeling and simulation, (ii) data and model analytics, (iii) concept discovery, and (iv) physical systems/experimentation. See link for different application and funding levels.
Other Opportunities and Announcements
UC Wildfire Symposium – June 4, 8 AM – Noon
Symposium program – Join UC Research and Innovation to learn how the cutting-edge work of experts from UC’s campuses and national labs can help California achieve its wildfire resilience and recovery goals Registration Link
NOAA Oceanic and Atmospheric Research – Required pre-proposal due June 21, 2021
Funding to conduct or support ocean exploration resulting in outcomes that provide or enable initial assessments about unknown or poorly understood regions of U.S. waters. Proposals should focus on one of the following themes: exploration of biological, chemical, and physical ocean environments, marine archaeology, or technology. Provides between $75K and $750K total over one or two years.
Submitting a proposal intake form will help streamline the proposal process. This initiates a proposal in Cayuse, notifies OSP, and enables Research Development Specialists to connect with you. For best support, contact us early and ensure you meet institutional deadlines.
Feel free to reach out to us with questions; we look forward to working with you!
Hardeep, Heather, and Elif
