Career Awards at the Scientific Interface
About the Award
BWF’s Career Awards at the Scientific Interface (CASI) provide $500,000 over five years to bridge advanced postdoctoral training and the first three years of faculty service. These awards are open to U.S. and Canadian citizens or permanent residents as well as to U.S. temporary residents.
These grants are intended to foster the early career development of researchers who have transitioned or are transitioning from undergraduate and/or graduate work in the physical/mathematical/computational sciences or engineering into postdoctoral work in the biological sciences, and who are dedicated to pursuing a career in academic research.
Scientific advances such as genomics, quantitative structural biology, imaging techniques, and modeling of complex systems have created opportunities for exciting research careers at the interface between the physical/computational sciences and the biological sciences. Tackling key problems in biology will require scientists trained in areas such as chemistry, physics, applied mathematics, computer science, and engineering.
The competition will employ a two-stage process. Pre-proposals will be reviewed and full proposal invitations will be sent by November 14, 2017.
All applicants will be required to complete a web-based questionnaire assessing their eligibility to apply for this award. If eligibility criteria are met, applicants will be automatically directed to the web-based pre-proposal application.
It is strongly recommended that potential applicants review the Request for Proposals prior to accessing the eligibility questionnaire.
For a full explanation of the eligibility requirements, view the Request for Proposals.

For each 8:30-noon class:
The University of Virginia School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The University of Virginia School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 3.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)(tm). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. The University of Virginia School of Medicine awards 3.25 hours of participation (equivalent to AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)(tm)) to each non-physician participant who successfully completes this educational activity. The University of Virginia School of Medicine maintains a record of participation for six (6) years. To obtain a copy of your continuing education transcript please go to www.cmevillage.com and click on Transcripts and follow the instructions.
The University of Virginia is convening a national workshop to define overarching challenges, explore opportunities, develop collaborations, and build strategies toward a research agenda to advance quality of life in under-connected (medium, small, remote, and rural) communities. Specifically, discussions will be through the lens of how technology, communications, and networking can advance polycentric development. The meeting will bring together researchers, practitioners, non-government and nonprofit organizations, industry partners, government representatives, and community stakeholders to identify and articulate opportunities for high-impact research.
The meeting will be held at the University of Virginia, on September 7-8th, 2017.
Due to sponsorship by the National Science Foundation, invited attendees are eligible for a stipend to offset travel costs (see workshop website for details).
POSITION PAPER: Participation in CRC17 is by invitation only. Interested members of the community must submit a position paper in order to be considered for invitation. Position papers should explore challenges and opportunities around the topics outlined in the program agenda. Proposers can take one (or more) of the following approaches to composing the position papers: (1) articulating overarching challenges in rural communities, (2) describe ongoing relevant research, or (3) propose forward-looking research efforts/agendas. Paper can be submitted at the workshop website below or at https://cps-vo.org/group/CRC17/submit-paper
