Interdisciplinary Faculty Research Seed Grants
Deadline: March 1, 2019

This seed grant program is sponsored by the Global Change and Sustainability Center in collaboration with the Society Water and Climate Research Group and Nexus: Interdisciplinary Exchange for Utah Science to incentivize new or expanded interdisciplinary collaborations between two or more U of U faculty researchers from different disciplines or departments.  These grants are intended to help foster new interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary sustainability and global / environmental change research. Read more and apply here.


Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier: Core Research (FW-HTF)
Deadline: March 6, 2019

The Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier (FW-HTF), one of the Big Ideas, is one mechanism by which NSF is responding to the challenges and opportunities for the future of jobs and work. The overarching vision is to support convergent research to understand and develop the human-technology partnership, design new technologies to augment human performance, illuminate the emerging socio-technological landscape, understand the risks and benefits of new technologies, understand and influence the impact of artificial intelligence on workers and work, and foster lifelong and pervasive learning.

The specific objectives of the Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier program are:

  1. To facilitate convergent research that employs the joint perspectives, methods, and knowledge of computer science, engineering, learning sciences, research on education and workforce training, and social, behavioral, and economic sciences;
  2. To encourage the development of a research community dedicated to designing intelligent technologies and work organization and modes inspired by their positive impact on individual workers, the work at hand, the way people learn and adapt to technological change, creative and supportive workplaces (including remote locations, homes, classrooms, or virtual spaces), and benefits for social, economic, and environmental systems at different scales;
  3. To promote deeper basic understanding of the interdependent human-technology partnership to advance societal needs by advancing design of intelligent work technologies that operate in harmony with human workers, including consideration of how adults learn the new skills needed to interact with these technologies in the workplace, and by enabling broad workforce participation, including improving accessibility for those challenged by physical or cognitive impairment; and
  4. To understand, anticipate, and explore ways of mitigating potential risks arising from future work at the human-technology frontier.

A proposal for a research grant in this program must focus on advancing fundamental understanding of future work, and potential improvements to work, workplaces, workforce preparation, or work outcomes for workers and society. It must be convergent research that addresses the technological as well as the human and societal dimensions and potential impact of future work, and in doing so, make significant contributions to both intellectual merit and broader impact. Achieving this goal requires integration and convergence of disciplines across computer science, engineering, learning sciences, research on education and workforce training, and social, behavioral, and economic sciences.


Young Investigator Grant for Probiotics Research
Deadline: March 6, 2019

The Global Probiotics Council (GPC), a committee established in 2004 by DANONE NUTRICIA RESEARCH and YAKULT HONSHA CO., LTD., has announced the twelfth annual Young Investigator Grant for Probiotics Research (YIGPRO).  The Council is offering two grants in the amount of $50,000 each for 2019. The purpose of these grants is to support new research on probiotics and gastrointestinal microbiota in the United States.  Young Investigators committed to basic research on gastrointestinal microbiota, probiotics and their role in health and wellness should apply.
