New (Early Career) Investigator Program in Earth Science (ROSES 2017) -- Deadlines Extended
The New (Early Career) Investigator Program (NIP) in Earth Science is designed to support outstanding scientific research and career development of scientists and engineers at the early stage of their professional careers. The program aims to encourage innovative research initiatives and cultivate scientific leadership in Earth system science. The Earth Science Division (ESD) places particular emphasis on the investigators' ability to promote and increase the use of space-based remote sensing through the proposed research.
- Notice of Intent: August 14, 2017 (was July 31, 2017)
- Proposal: September 28, 2017 (was Aug. 31, 2017)
Areas of Interest
The NIP supports all aspects of scientific and technological research aimed to advance NASA’s mission in Earth system science (http://science.nasa.gov/about-us/sciencestrategy/). In research and analysis, the focus areas are: • Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems, • Climate Variability and Change, • Water and Energy Cycle, • Atmospheric Composition, • Weather, and • Earth Surface and Interior.
A NIP proposal PI must be a U.S. citizen or have lawful status of permanent residency (i.e., holder of a U.S. Permanent Resident Card, also referred to as the Green Card)1 . He/she must be a recent Ph.D. recipient, defined as having graduated on or after January 1 of the year that is no more than five years before the issuance date of this ROSES NASA Research Announcement (NRA) (i.e., after January 1, 2012; but see also third bullet below). Institutions and organizations are encouraged to submit proposals under the NIP on behalf of their outstanding new faculty members or employees in Earth system science and associated applications, as long as the individuals are the proposed PIs.
