Program Guidelines: PD 17-7479 The BMMB Program supports fundamental research in biomechanics and mechanobiology. An emphasis is placed on multiscale mechanics approaches in the study of organisms that integrate across molecular, cell, tissue, and organ domains. The influence of in vivo mechanical forces on cell and matrix biology in the histomorphogenesis, maintenance, regeneration, and aging of tissues is an important concern. In addition, the relationships between mechanical behavior and …More at https://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=13523&WT.mc_id=USNSF_39&WT.mc_ev=click
Program Guidelines: PD 17-8085 The Systems Science (SYS) program supports fundamental research leading to a theoretical foundation for design and systems engineering. In particular, the Systems Science program seeks intellectual advances in which underlying theories (such as probability theory, decision theory, game theory, organizational sociology, behavioral economics or cognitive psychology) are integrated and abstracted to develop explanatory models for design and systems engineering in a general, …More at https://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=504788&WT.mc_id=USNSF_39&WT.mc_ev=click
Program Guidelines: PD 17-014Y The Engineering for Natural Hazards (ENH) program supports fundamental research that advances knowledge for understanding and mitigating the impact of natural hazards on constructed civil infrastructure. Natural hazards considered by the ENH program include earthquakes, windstorms (such as tornadoes and hurricanes), tsunamis, storm surge, and landslides. The constructed civil infrastructure supported by the ENH program includes building systems, such as the …More at https://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=505177&WT.mc_id=USNSF_39&WT.mc_ev=click
Program Guidelines: PD 17-1637 The overall goal of the Structural and Architectural Engineering and Materials (SAEM) program is to enable sustainable buildings and other structures that can be continuously occupied and/or operated during the structure’s useful life. The SAEM program supports fundamental research for advancing knowledge and innovation in structural and architectural engineering and materials that promotes a holistic approach to analysis and design, construction, operation, maintenance, retrofit, and …More at https://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=13358&WT.mc_id=USNSF_39&WT.mc_ev=click
Program Guidelines: PD 17-1788 Nanomanufacturing is the production of useful nano-scale materials, structures, devices and systems in an economically viable manner. The NSF Nanomanufacturing Program supports fundamental research in novel methods and techniques for batch and continuous processes, top-down (addition/subtraction) and bottom-up (directed self-assembly) processes leading to the formation of complex heterogeneous nanosystems. The program supports basic research in nanostructure and process design principles, …More at https://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=13347&WT.mc_id=USNSF_39&WT.mc_ev=click
I am reaching out to you to alert you of a NEW Entrepreneurial Research Experience for Undergraduates that will happen in the Summer 2017! The aim of this E-REU is to provide students with a truly integrated research and entrepreneurship training experience, giving them both depth in fundamental engineering research, as well as breadth in entrepreneurial skills. Please pass along and share the attached flier with those that may be interested. For more information: http://e-reu.engr.uconn.edu/
World’s Richest and Largest Student Startup Competition
The Human Computer Interaction Graduate Program at Iowa State University hosts a summer Undergraduate Research Experience, sponsored by the National Science Foundation. This is a ten-week research experience where students take short courses in HCI and work in interdisciplinary teams on research projects. Housing and meals are provided, as well as a $5000 stipend. More information about this program can be found athttp://www.vrac.iastate.edu/hci/reu/
The application deadline is January 9, 2017.
After you review the materials on the website, please let us know if you have questions.
Please share this information with any of your students who may be interested.
Thanks so much.

Wiley has a series of great, short guides called Essential Knowledge Briefings on the latest techniques, applications and equipment used in analytical science and research laboratories. They are free and available in different formats (pdf, mobi, epub).They have one for WDS, EDS, EPMA, EBSD, Micro XRF, XPS etc.It is a nice thing for teaching to share with students or other interested users. You can also often find hard copies at their exhibition at big conferences (so if you are at AGU… I have definitely seen them at the M&M conference).You can find them here:It requires a registration but then it is free.

Landing a grant involves patience, persistence, and a lot of back and forth to hone an idea until it aligns with both sides’ missions and goals.
Proposals are being solicited for the Research Excellence Fund (REF) program, an internal award of the Office of the Vice President for Research.
Budgets are due no later than 4 p.m. Thursday, March 3 and proposals are due no later than 4 p.m. Thursday, March 10. Both must be submitted electronically per the guidelines.
Incomplete proposals or those received after the deadline will not be accepted for consideration by the review committee and will be returned. Any proposals that do not follow the guidelines will also not be accepted for consideration. Review the guidelines on the website.
For additional information, see Research Excellence Fund.
If you are interested in serving on a proposal review committee or if you have any questions, contact Natasha Chopp.
