    GENERAL

    39-1 NSF-NATO Postdoctoral Fellowships in Science and Engineering (NSF)

    The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites applications for 12 month postdoctoral fellowships from beginning scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. Approximately 30 fellowships will be offered for research and/or study abroad and approximately 5 awards will be made to US institutions that would like to invite Visiting Scientist from Cooperation Partner Countries. Eligible fields of research are: mathematics, engineering, computer, and information science, geosciences, and the physical, biological, social, behavioral, and economic sciences, the history and philosophy of science, and interdisciplinary areas comprised of two or more of these fields.

    EDUCATION

    39-2 Adult Literacy (NIFL)

    The National Institute for Literacy (NIFL) is inviting cooperative agreement applications to develop and build consensus for content standards that communicate what adults need to know to perform in their various roles as citizen, worker and parent/family member. This project should build consensus at the national, state and local levels for the goals of NIFL's Equipped for the Future program and a standards framework; develop and refine content standards and performance indicators; and work in collaboration with NIFL, the Education and Labor departments and other grantees to create a national framework for reform of adult education and training delivery systems.

    Deadline: 12/20/96

     

    39-3 Technical Assistance to the Support for Teritiary Education Project (USAID)

    USAID/South Africa plans to solicit offers from qualified U.S. entities to provide services to the Support for Tertiary Education Project. Under the proposed contract, the contractor will provide (1) long-and short-term level-of effort technical assistance to the government departments and NGOs at the national and provincial levels, (2) short-term training and (3) grants management support for new and existing project grant agreements. The primary objective of the activities to be implemented under the contract is to support the Republic of South Africa in: (1) enacting and approving policies for transforming the Further Education Sector, (2) developing responsible and functional systems to sustain a transformed education system, (3) strengthening organizational capacity within the education sector through NGOs, civil society organizations (CSOs) and government partnerships at the national and provincial levels, and (4) the formulation, dissemination of model education practices, and implementation of policies and a system at national and provincial levels in the Further Education and Youth Development sectors.

    ENGINEERING, MATHEMATICS & PHYSICAL SCIENCES

    39-4 Grants to Address the Infrastructure Needs of Research Groups in the Mathematical Sciences (NSF)

    The Division of Mathematical Sciences plans to make a small number of awards in Fiscal Year 1997 addressing infrastructure needs of research groups. Proposals for these Group Infrastructure Grants may include requests for any infrastructure or research-supportive needs, including but not limited to such needs as support for graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral investigators, computer support, personnel and maintenance, visitors and consultant services, support for travel, workshops, conferences, special research years, and other budget items essential for the success of proposed activities, including indirect costs. Groups of researchers, possibly at different institutions, with related research goals, are invited to submit proposals. (NSF 97-8)

    HEALTH & LIFE SCIENCES

    39-5 Molecular and Genetic Studies in Pancreatitis and Pancreatic Cancer (NIH)

    The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) wish to encourage experienced and new investigators to pursue basic and clinical investigations into the molecular genetics of acute and chronic pancreatitis as well as the `preneoplastic' genetic changes that occur and predispose individuals to adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. Basic studies include the generation of transgenic animal models of pancreatitis that show inherited forms of pancreatitis. Particularly, organ-specific transgenic mice are sought which exhibit acute or chronic pancreatitis. Alternatively, for pancreatic cancer, the fifth most common cause of death from cancer, basic science studies are sought which identify the numerous genetic alterations that are involved in this form of carcinogenesis. Such studies could utilize transgenic mice or gene knock-out mice to systematically determine pancreatic preneoplastic genetic events. PA-97-004 (NIHG 10/25/96)

    STUDENT

    39-6 Biomedical Engineering (Whitaker)

    The goal of the Whitaker Foundation Graduate Fellowship Program is to help especially talented individuals develop the skills required for a successful career in biomedical engineering research. Students who are in the final year of undergraduate study in engineering or science programs at universities in the United States and who plan to study for a Ph.D. or Sc.D degree in engineering, with an educational program concentrated in biomedical engineering, are eligible to apply. First year graduate students may also apply. Individuals who are awarded fellowships must study at institutions of higher education in the United States that offer Ph.D. or Sc.D. degrees in engineering and provide significant opportunities for biomedical engineering research.

    Deadline: 12/11/96

     

    39-7 Summer Programs in Japan and Korea (NSF)

    The National Science Foundation (NSF), as cosponsor of the Summer Programs together with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Agricultural Research Service (ARS), and as the agency in charge of administering the programs, welcomes applications from all qualified graduate students in science and engineering, including the biomedical and agricultural sciences. These three summer programs provide U.S. graduate students in science and engineering first-hand experience in Japanese and Korean research environments, and introduction to the science and science policy infrastructure of the respective countries, and language training. The primary goals of the programs are to introduce students to Japanese and Korean science and engineering in the context of a research laboratory and to initiate personal relationships that will better enable them to collaborate with Japanese and Korean counterparts in the future. (NSF 96-151)

    Deadline: 12/01/96

    39-8 Biology of Aging (AFAR)

    Scholarships for research on the biology of aging are available for 3-month projects related to the basic sciences and aging. The program allows both M.D. and Ph.D. students an opportunity to acquire an understanding of the challenges involved in improving the quality of life in older people.
