Burroughs Wellcome Fund

- Career Awards at the Scientific Interface
www.bwfund.org/CASI
Program Description: The complexity inherent in biological research has always provided a fertile field for the development of new mathematical and physical approaches to biological problems. But now, with advances in genomics, quantitative structural biology, and modeling of complex systems, the possibilities for an exciting research career at the interface between the physical/computational sciences and the biological sciences have never been greater. Tackling key problems in biology will require scientists trained in areas such as chemistry, physics, applied mathematics, computer science, and engineering. In recognition of the vital role such cross-trained scientists will play in furthering biomedical science, the Burroughs Wellcome Fund has developed Career Awards at the Scientific Interface. These grants are intended to foster the early career development of researchers with backgrounds in the physical/computational sciences whose work addresses biological questions and who are dedicated to pursuing a career in academic research. Candidates are expected to draw from their training in a scientific field other than biology to propose innovative approaches to answer important questions in the biological sciences. Examples of approaches include, but are not limited to, physical measurement of biological phenomena, computer simulation of complex processes in physiological systems, mathematical modeling of self-organizing behavior, building probabilistic tools for medical diagnosis, developing novel imaging tools or biosensors, applying nanotechnology to manipulate cellular systems, predicting cellular responses to topological clues and mechanical forces, and developing a new conceptual understanding of the complexity of living organisms. Proposals that include experimental validation of theoretical models are particularly encouraged.
Eligibility: Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry (physical, theoretical, or computational), computer science, statistics, or engineering. Exceptions will be made only if the applicant can demonstrate significant expertise in one of these areas, evidenced by publications or advanced course work. Candidates must have completed at least six months but not more than 48 months of postdoctoral training at the time of application and must not hold or have accepted a faculty appointment as a tenuretrack assistant professor at the time of application. These awards are open to U.S. and Canadian citizens or permanent residents. Limited eligibility for temporary residents—please see guidelines.
Deadline: September 4 2012
Grant Amount: Career Awards at the Scientific Interface provide $500,000 over five years to support up to two years of advanced postdoctoral training and the first three years of a faculty appointment. During both the postdoctoral and the faculty periods, grants must be made to degree-granting institutions in the United States or Canada on behalf of the award recipient.
Application information: Full application information is available on the Burroughs Wellcome Fund website. Please follow web link, above. Or write to Burroughs Wellcome Fund, Interfaces Program, 21 T. W. Alexander Dr., P.O. Box 13901, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709-3901.

Grants are considered especially suitable for post-graduate scholars, professionals, and candidates in the arts to carry out research or study visits of one to three months duration. Fellowships are intended to support a year-long stay. Priority is given to candidates at the graduate level for dissertation-related study or research. The awards support project-related costs, including maintenance, trans-Atlantic round-trip travel, in-country travel, tuition and fees (where applicable) and materials expenditures (e.g., books, photocopying, art supplies). ASF awards may require supplementation from other sources, but they should not duplicate the benefits of additional awards (and vice versa). Candidates must notify the ASF if they have received other award offers. The ASF will not provide funds if, in its judgment, a proposal can be carried out without its assistance.
Eligibility: Applicants must have a well-defined research or study project that makes a stay in Scandinavia essential. Applicants must be United States citizens or permanent residents. Applicants must have completed their undergraduate education by the start of their project in Scandinavia.

First priority will be given to applicants who have not previously received an ASF award. Only in exceptional cases will a third award be considered. The ASF considers it desirable that all candidates have at least some ability in the language of the host country, even if it is not essential for the execution of the research plan. For projects that require a command of one or more Scandinavian (or other) languages, candidates should defer application until they have the necessary proficiency.


Deadline: The deadline for completed applications is November 1, 2012. Decisions announced March 15, 2013.
Grant Amount: The American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) offers fellowships (up to $23,000) and grants (normally $5,000) to individuals to pursue research or study in one or more Scandinavian country for up to one year. Awards are made in all fields.

Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program

- Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program
www.fulbrightteacherexchange.org
Program Description: Sponsored by the United States Department of State, the Fulbright Classroom Teacher Exchange program provides opportunities for full-time K-12 grade teachers to participate in direct exchanges of positions with colleagues from other countries for a semester or academic year. By living and working in the cultures of their host countries, Fulbright teachers gain an understanding and appreciation of the similarities and differences in national cultures and education systems. Fulbright teachers enrich their schools and communities with a new awareness of other cultures and of events occurring in different parts of the world, providing students and citizens with new perspectives about the world in which they live. Participating countries for 2012-2013 include: the Czech Republic, France, Hungary, India, Mexico, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

The Distinguished Fulbright Awards in Teaching program recognizes and encourages excellence in teaching in the U.S. and abroad. The program sends highly accomplished primary and secondary teachers from the U.S. abroad and brings international teachers to the U.S for a three to six month long program. This program provides U.S. award recipients with the opportunity to study in an overseas research center or university. International participants gather at a U.S. host university school of education, which will provide a broad range of education classes and faculty support. Participants take graduate level classes, conduct research, lead classes and seminars for host country teachers and students, and engage in other teaching related activities. During the program Distinguished Teachers work towards the completion of an action-based resarch project of their own design. The teachers are placed at a local K-12 school, where they team teach or guest lecture in classes. Upon returning home, teachers are expected to share the knowledge and experience gained on the program with teachers and students in their home schools and within their communities.

Eligibility: Eligibility requirements are U.S. citizenship, fluency in English, a bachelor’s degree or higher, three years’ full-time teaching/administrative experience, a current full-time teaching/administrative position, approval of school administration, and no participation in a Fulbright Program longer than eight weeks in the last five years. In addition to the general eligibility requirements, each applicant must meet the specific subject, level, and language fluency requirements for the countries to which he/she applies; these requirements are detailed in the application booklet.
Deadline: The application deadline is October 15 for the following year’s program.
