The National Science Foundation is currently accepting proposals for funding through the EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement Track 4: Research Fellows Program.
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,” according to the solicitation.
Research fellows are expected to “learn new techniques, benefit from access to unique equipment and facilities, and shift their research toward transformative new directions.”
Awards may not exceed $300,000 over a two-year period. The deadline for submission of the full proposal is February 28, 2017.
