MISSISSIPPI NSF EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM TO STIMULATE COMPETITIVE RESEARCH (MS EPSCoR) MODELING AND SIMULATION OF COMPLEX SYSTEMS COMPUTATIONAL CHEMISTRY GRANT PROGRAM FOR MISSISSIPPI PREDOMINANTLY UNDERGRADUATE INSTITUTIONS 2013
Deadline: July 20, 2013
BACKGROUND The 2009-2014 Mississippi EPSCoR award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Experimental Program promotes research in Modeling and Simulation of Complex Systems. One of the three research focus areas within this grant is computational chemistry (CompChem). The overall grant provides support for one research grant per year for a faculty member from a Mississippi Predominantly Undergraduate Institution (PUI) to perform collaborative research with EPSCoR computational chemistry faculty members.
COMPUTATIONAL CHEMISTRY PUI RESEARCH GRANT OBJECTIVES The PUI grant is designed to encourage a PUI faculty member to collaborate on computational chemistry research with researchers at Mississippi research universities, to encourage undergraduate research in computational chemistry at the PUI, and to encourage students to pursue graduate education in computational chemistry or a related field. The research universities are Jackson State University, Mississippi State University, the University of Mississippi (including the University of Mississippi Medical Center), and the University of Southern Mississippi. The PUI grant is for one year. All research must be tightly integrated with core goals of the Mississippi NSF EPSCoR CompChem research focus area. Applicants are encouraged to read the description of the 2009-2015 NSF EPSCoR project at: http://www.msepscor.org/ prior to submission to ensure that the proposed project is consistent with the objectives of the NSF EPSCoR grant.
FUNDING AMOUNT Funding for each proposal is for one year and will not exceed $25,000 including F & A, pending availability of funds from NSF.
