The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to address a workforce shortfall in critical technical topic areas by training graduate students in specific disciplines or sub-disciplines aligned with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) workforce needs in the area of instrumentation, particularly as they apply to HEP’s mission-space.
The DOE SC program in High Energy Physics (HEP) is interested in receiving applications for the DOE Traineeship in HEP Instrumentation, which will provide support to address critical, targeted workforce development in fields of interest to the DOE mission. Up to two cooperative agreements may be awarded to provide funding to universities or consortia of universities to support tuition, stipend, and travel costs for students enrolled in specific academic programs aimed at training graduate students in the physics and technology of detectors and instrumentation for HEP and related fields, and to provide modest support for curriculum development and program administration. Award terms are expected to be up to five years, with the possibility of renewal for a second term. This program does not support dedicated research efforts to develop new technologies for HEP; such efforts are supported through the HEP Detector research and development subprogram.

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to advance research on the impact of SARS-CoV-2 and associated mitigation efforts on individual, family, and community behavior and on how subsequent economic disruption affects health-related outcomes, with close attention to underserved and vulnerable populations.
To address these questions, this FOA aims to form a research consortium to access, extract, integrate, share, and analyze existing data from various sources with broad population coverage including underserved and vulnerable populations. Examples of existing data include public health data; personal digital data; economic, labor, and commerce data; electronic health records (EHRs); claims data; and ongoing health, demographic, and social surveys. This FOA solicits applications for individual population research projects that will be linked to a Social, Behavioral, and Economic Research on COVID-19 Consortium Coordination Center (SBECCC) to foster collaboration and synergies across consortium member projects. Investigators will work with the SBECCC to enhance as well as share data resources used in proposed research both within the consortium as well as with others for health research purposes. The SBECCC will organize annual meetings of the consortium investigators to share results, foster harmonization among measures collected, identify new opportunities for interaction/collaboration, and share results with NIH and the public. Further, the SBECCC will support the development of reports and analyses summarizing and integrating the findings/products of the consortium.

The NIH Director’s Pioneer Award Program supports individual scientists of exceptional creativity who propose highly innovative research projects with the potential to produce a major impact on broad, important areas relevant to the mission of NIH. For the program to support the best possible researchers and research, applications are sought which reflect the full diversity of the nation’s research workforce. Individuals from diverse backgrounds and from the full spectrum of eligible institutions in all geographic locations are strongly encouraged to apply to this Funding Opportunity Announcement. In addition, applications in all topics relevant to the broad mission of NIH are welcome, including, but not limited to, topics in the behavioral, social, biomedical, applied, and formal sciences and topics that may involve basic, translational, or clinical research. To be considered pioneering, the proposed research must reflect substantially different scientific directions from those already being pursued in the investigator’s research program or elsewhere. The NIH Director’s Pioneer Award is a component of the High-Risk, High-Reward Research (HRHR) Program of the NIH Common Fund.

The CDDRR program’s goal is to improve the performance of all operational meteorological hydrological, and disaster/emergency management services worldwide. Improving agencies’ performance for enhanced decision support services is done through collaboration between operational hydrologists/meteorologists, scientists, and other staff with expertise across a wide range of environmental, economic, and social and behavioral sciences.
The purpose of this FOA is to support multi-disciplinary, Program Project applications aimed at understanding changes in the HIV reservoir over time in different cell types and tissues. A better understanding of the mechanisms that govern HIV reservoir dynamics over time is essential to inform the development of strategies to cure HIV or control viral infection to overcome the need for life-long antiretroviral therapy.
This program will 1) support an increased understanding of cancer through comprehensive proteogenomic approaches, 2) expand support for the development of novel cancer diagnostics and therapeutics by implementing proteogenomic strategies to understand drug response and development of resistance in the context of a clinical trial, and 3) accelerate its translation through public resources (such as data, assays, images and reagents) that catalyze hypothesis-driven science.
This FOA invites applications for Comprehensive Alcohol Research Centers using the P60 mechanism which requires a dissemination core to initiate and expand community education related to the activities of the center. The overall purpose of the NIAAA Alcohol Research Center program is to provide leadership in conducting and fostering interdisciplinary, collaborative research on a wide variety of topics relevant to the Institutes mission.
This FOA is issued by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke to enable submission of program project grant applications that propose to conduct innovative, interactive research to answer significant scientific questions that are important for the mission of NINDS, via a synergistic collaboration between outstanding scientists who might not otherwise collaborate.
This FOA seeks to improve the cyber and cyber-physical security posture of the electric sector through the integration of the DOE Cybersecurity Roadmap Vision statement of ensuring that resilient energy delivery systems are designed, installed, operated, and maintained to survive a cyber incident while sustaining critical functions.
