NSF/NOAA SEES Fellows Program submissions due Nov. 21

The National Science Foundation has issued the following program announcement.

Dear Colleague Letter: NSF/NOAA SEES Fellows http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2013/nsf13123/nsf13123.jsp?WT.mc_ev=click&WT.mc_id=USNSF_25&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery

This solicitation requires that applicants develop a plan for a research partnership. NSF and NOAA believe that NOAA program offices, centers, and laboratories, which are based throughout the country, provide an opportunity for such partnerships between SBE scientists and NOAA staff. Although there is no set-aside, as proposals to reside at NOAA facilities must compete with all the other proposals, the willingness of NOAA administrators to work with SBE scientists should enable SBE scholars to develop strong proposals. This opportunity is open to early-career scholars. Awards provide salary support, research expenses and travel support for a maximum of 3 years. Proposals are due Nov. 21, 2013.
