UMSL Celebrates Early Career Research
On Sept 30, 2022, UMSL leadership welcomed the campus community to the fifth annual Early Career Research Symposium. The event recognizes and celebrates the emerging research of new and early career faculty and provides a valuable networking platform to foster multidisciplinary collaboration. The event, which drew a crowd of more than 65 people, showcased faculty research with short presentations on a wide array of themes, from spatial inequality to advanced materials, civic learning to diversification in social wasps. Katie Quinn, Assistant Professor, Criminology and Criminal Justice (pictured left), won both awards for Best Presentation and Best Visuals for her engaging talk entitled Why Doing Good is So Hard: Examining Community Efforts to Help Criminalized Individuals in Canada.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has updated its Data Management and Sharing (DMS) policy (new terms effective January 25, 2023) to promote the sharing of scientific data. Sharing scientific data accelerates biomedical research discovery, in part, by enabling validation of research results, providing accessibility to high-value datasets, and promoting data reuse for future research studies. Under the DMS policy, NIH expects that investigators and institutions to plan and budget for the managing and sharing of data, submit a DMS plan for review when applying for funding, and comply with the approved DMS plan. For more information to help you integrate data management and sharing into your funding application and research process, visit the NIH scientific data sharing and supplemental policy information sites.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has released a new, updated edition of its Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG). Note that the new PAPPG will be effective for proposals submitted or due on or after January 30, 2023. NSF will present information about these changes at the upcoming NSF Grants Conference, described in the Events section below.
"Cheat Sheet" for NIH and NSF Proposals
The ORECD has prepared a new resource to help you navigate NIH and NSF grant proposals. This short “cheat sheet” provides handy information on formatting requirements for NIH and NSF proposals including acceptable fonts, margins, headers and footers, etc. for NSF and NIH proposals. This resource is available on the ORECD website. Get Your Cheat Sheet
Amount: $1,000 – $12,500
DEADLINE: 5 p.m., Friday, Feb. 17, 2023
The UMSL Research Award competition, designed to strengthen faculty research and creative activities, is now open. UMSL Research Awards support faculty whose competitive position for external funding will be improved by such assistance or to help faculty maintain an active research program if external funding is difficult to obtain. Visit the ORECD for more information. Submit your application packet as a PDF to Jonathan Lohnes at email@example.com before 5 p.m. on Feb. 17, 2023.
