Title: Early Career Faculty (ECF)
Program Summary: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Headquarters has released a solicitation, titled “Early Career Faculty (ECF)”, as an Appendix to the Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) NASA Research Announcement (NRA), titled “Space Technology Research, Development, Demonstration, and Infusion 2014 (SpaceTech-REDDI-2014)”, on January 22, 2014. To access the Appendix, please follow these steps: 1. Open the NSPIRES homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ 2. Select “Solicitations” 3. Select “Open Solicitations” 4. Select “Space Technology Research, Development, Demonstration, and Infusion 2014 (SpaceTech-REDDI-2014)” 5. Select the “List of Open Program Elements” 6. Select “NNH14ZOA001N-14ECF-B1” STMD’s Space Technology Research Grants Program seeks proposals from accredited U.S. universities on behalf of faculty members beginning their independent careers. This Appendix is focused on supporting outstanding faculty researchers early in their careers as they conduct space technology research of high priority to NASA’s Mission Directorates. NASA is seeking proposals that plan to pursue innovative, early-stage space technology research in the topic areas specifically described in the Appendix. Our Nation’s universities couple fundamental research with education, encouraging a culture of innovation based on the discovery of knowledge. Universities are, therefore, ideally positioned to both conduct fundamental space technology research and diffuse newly-found knowledge into society at large through graduate students and industrial, government, and other partnerships. STMD investments in space technology research at U.S. universities will promote the continued leadership of our universities as an international symbol of the country’s scientific innovation, engineering creativity, and technological skill. Only accredited U.S. universities are eligible to submit proposals on behalf of their outstanding new faculty members who intend to develop academic careers related to space technology. The proposed research project must be led by a single, eligible Principal Investigator (PI). The PI must be a recent Ph.D. recipient, defined as having graduated on or after January 1, 2007. The PI must be an untenured Assistant Professor on the tenure track at the sponsoring U.S. university at the time of award. The 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 a Green Card). The PI may not be a current or former recipient of a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). The PI must be the primary researcher on the effort. Co-Investigators are not permitted. Collaborators are permitted. A PI may submit only one proposal in response to this Appendix. There is no limit on the number of proposals which may be submitted by an accredited U.S. university. NASA encourages submission of ECF proposals on behalf of early career faculty members at all institutions and especially encourages proposals submitted on behalf of women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and persons with disabilities.

Title: Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) – 2013
Program Summary: This National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Research Announcement (NRA), entitled Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES)–2013, solicits basic and applied research in support of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD). This NRA covers all aspects of basic and applied supporting research and technology in space and Earth sciences, including, but not limited to: theory, modeling, and analysis of SMD science data; aircraft, stratospheric balloon, suborbital rocket, International Space Station, and suborbital reusable launch vehicle investigations; development of experiment techniques suitable for future SMD space missions; development of concepts for future SMD space missions; development of advanced technologies relevant to SMD missions; development of techniques for and the laboratory analysis of both extraterrestrial samples returned by spacecraft, as well as terrestrial samples that support or otherwise help verify observations from SMD Earth system science missions; determination of atomic and composition parameters needed to analyze space data, as well as returned samples from the Earth or space; Earth surface observations and field campaigns that support SMD science missions; development of integrated Earth system models; development of systems for applying Earth science research data to societal needs; and development of applied information systems applicable to SMD objectives and data.
Due Date: April 30, 2014 and September 24, 2014
