The Early Career Faculty Innovator Program is a new funding opportunity for early career faculty in the social sciences and STEM outside of NCAR’s core expertise to co-develop interdisciplinary research projects in partnership with scientists and engineers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado. The Innovators Program aims to fund six faculty and one graduate student of each faculty participant for two years, starting in summer 2019. Research themes that align with NSF and NCAR strategic priorities are selected for each two-year cohort.
2019-2020 Research Theme: Coastal Regions and Human Settlements
Prospective applicants to the Innovators Program are invited to propose an interdisciplinary research project that can leverage expertise at NCAR and occur over a 2-year period. NCAR is committed to broadening participation in the geosciences and specifically invites scholars from Minority Serving Institutions to apply.
Applications to the Innovators Program will be accepted from January 15th, 2019 until March 1st, 2019. Before the start of the program, faculty are expected to nominate a graduate student who will be part of this project.
