Title: Basic Behavioral Research on Multisensory Processing (R21) (RFA-EY-13-001)

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Deadline: 10/12/2012

Amount: $200,000 

Description/Eligibility: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued as part of the NIH Basic Behavioral and Social Sciences Opportunity Network (OppNet), encourages research grant applications investigating multisensory processing in perception or other behavioral and social outcomes. The FOA is intended to support basic behavioral research projects focused on two or more sensory modalities. This includes research examining ways in which cognitive or affective processes interact with multisensory input to influence basic behavioral targets. While evidence suggests that sensory input is processed interactively instead of additively, research is less developed regarding how different modalities are integrated for perception and behavioral or social outcomes.

Title: Science, Engineering and Education for Sustainability Fellows (SEES) (12-601)

Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Deadline: 10/29/2012

Amount: $324,000-$354,000

Description/Eligibility: Through the SEES Fellows Program, NSF seeks to advance science, engineering, and education to inform the societal actions needed for environmental and economic sustainability and human wellbeing while creating the necessary workforce to address these challenges. The Program's emphasis is to facilitate investigations that cross-traditional disciplinary boundaries and address issues of sustainability through a systems approach, building bridges between academic inquiry, economic growth, and societal needs. The Fellow's proposed investigation must be interdisciplinary and allow him/her to obtain research experiences beyond his/her current core disciplinary expertise. Fellows are required to develop a research partnership(s) that will advance and broaden the impact/scope of the proposed research, and present a plan for their own professional development in the area of sustainability science and engineering.

How to Apply: Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Kathy Thatcher (thatcher@austin.utexas.edu) in the COLA Office of Research and return Proposal Review Form by October 29.
