Upcoming Funding Opportunities for Faculty
SBI Proposal Development Grants For Multidisciplinary
Research, Research Centers, Research Partnerships, Equipment
- The SBI is seeking requests from faculty that will aid in the development
of proposals for externally funded grants for: multidisciplinary research,
research centers, research partnerships, or for equipment. The maximum
amount of an SBI award will be $10K, which can be used to fund salary
(release time, summer salary, and increases in FTE up to 1.0) for generating
the proposal, clerical support, cost share, or matching funds for equipment.
Call for Participants for OSU Proposal
to the Superfund Basic Research Program - The SBRP
program is funded by the National Institutes of Environmental Health
Sciences and has an April 2007 deadline. The OSU goal is to create a multi-project,
multi-disciplinary center that integrates basic biomedical research with
related ecological or engineering projects. The emphasis for the OSU application
will be on polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Centers must focus on multiple
levels of investigation including, but not limited to: mechanisms of action,
environmental fate, transport, biomarkers, complex mixtures, epidemiology,
and remediation. OSU investigators interested in participating should
submit a one-page pre-proposal consisting of tentative project title,
description, significance, and specific aims by February 20, 2006. FMI:

National Research Initiative: Microbial
Genome Sequencing Program FY 2006 - As a collaborative,
interagency effort, the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Cooperative
State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES) of the U.S.
Department of Agriculture invite research proposals (i) to support high-throughput
sequencing of the genomes of microorganisms (including viruses, bacteria,
archaea, fungi, oomycetes, protists and agriculturally important nematodes)
and (ii) to develop and implement strategies, tools and technologies to
make currently available genome sequences more valuable to the user community.
Submission Deadline: March 2. FMI: http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5688&org=BIO&from=home

Upcoming Funding Opportunities for Students
SBI Summer 2006 Undergraduate Internships
- SBI will offer paid internships for undergraduates to work on research
projects related to the subsurface biosphere. The goal of these internships
is to provide undergraduates with rewarding research experiences at OSU
that will stimulate their interest in the subsurface biosphere and encourage
them to pursue graduate studies. The program will focus on, but is not
limited to, under-represented minority and women students. The
application deadline is April 15. FMI: http://sbi.oregonstate.edu/education/interns.htm.
Sigma Xi Research Grants
- March 15 is the deadline for Sigma Xi grants of up to $1,000
to support undergraduate and graduate student research in any field of
science and engineering including social sciences. There are no citizenship
restrictions for these grants. International students and non-U.S. citizens
are encouraged to apply. Undergraduate or graduate students in a degree
program are eligible. FMI: http://www.sigmaxi.org/programs/giar
