43-7 AIP and APS Congressional Fellowships (AIP)

Members of the physics community who want to spend a unique year learning about the inner workings of the federal government while getting involved on a personal level should consider applying to the American Institute of Physics and the American Physical Society Congressional Science Fellowship program. For physicists who want to apply their knowledge and skills beyond the lab bench, and who believe there is a need for technical advice and analysis in the conduct of national policy, the Congressional Fellowships are an opportunity to make a difference. After a two-week orientation in Washington, Fellows work with congressional offices to select an assignment in the office of a Member of Congress or for a congressional committee. Scientists of all ages and career levels are encouraged to apply.

43-11 Science of Design (NSF)

The Science of Design Program seeks to initiate new activities to bring together the necessary knowledge and expertise to develop a rigorous science of design for software-intensive systems. The program seeks ideas that will broaden the ways in which software design research is conducted, particularly in light of increasing software sophistication, diversity, dependences, and risks. The focus on design as the central theme of this program is intended to raise the level of discourse, generate new interdisciplinary perspectives, and take a more holistic view of the major challenges of building software-intensive systems. A person may be a participant (i.e., PI, co-PI, senior personnel) on at most one proposal to the Science of Design program. NSF 07-505 (Posted 10/12/06)

INTERNATIONAL/MULTICULTURAL

43-12 U.S.-China Collaboration in Mathematical Research (NSF)

This letter is to inform the community of U.S. scientists that the Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) has entered into an agreement with the Department of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (DMPS) of the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NFSC) in supporting joint projects between U.S.-based mathematicians/statisticians and China-based mathematicians in all research areas of mathematical and statistical sciences. To promote direct collaboration between U.S. and China based researchers, both NSF and NSFC will consider collaborative research projects that are innovative and beneficial to both sides. Because face to face interaction is important to effective collaborations, NSF expects visits of U.S.- based researchers to Chinese institutions for a period of two or more weeks, sufficient to establish new and innovative research collaborations. NSFC also expects visits of China-based researchers to U.S. institutions for a period of two or more weeks. NSF will accept requests for funding from collaborative teams in the form of a supplement to an existing award to DMS disciplinary programs. NSF 07-005 (Posted 11/1/06)

SOCIAL SCIENCES

43-13 Intimate Partner Violence and Stalking: Research for Policy and Practice (DOJ)

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is the research, development, and evaluation agency of the U.S. Department of Justice and a component of the Office of Justice Programs (OJP). NIJ seeks proposals to gain research knowledge to increase victim safety and improve the justice system and related responses to intimate partner violence and stalking. Research is sought on victim safety and protection; programs and policies to hold offenders accountable; law enforcement, prosecution, and judicial responses; coordinated community responses; and effective responses in diverse communities. Proposals on foundational and developmental research may be submitted, although the primary goal of the program is to support research on the effectiveness of strategies and interventions that will result in general and useful information for policy and practice. 2007-NIJ-1414 (GG 10/25/06)

Deadline: 1/23/2007

43-14 Research on Policing and Public Safety Interventions (DOJ)

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is the research, development, and evaluation agency of the U.S. Department of Justice and a component of the Office of Justice Programs (OJP). NIJ is seeking proposals to conduct research on policing and public safety interventions to improve law enforcement policies and operations at the State and local levels. Effective law enforcement and crime prevention are of critical importance to ensuring the safety of communities throughout the country. Given the limited resources of most police departments and other local agencies and groups, it is especially important to determine the effectiveness of police department policies and public safety interventions. 2007-NIJ-1419 (GG 10/30/06)
