Illinois faculty/staff invited to apply for fellowships to support collaboration with NCSA

Published Date: Dec 11, 2012

The Institute for Advanced Computing Applications and Technologies is seeking applicants for its Faculty Fellows Program, which provides seed funding for developing long-term research collaborations between University of Illinois faculty and the staff at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA).

Proposals can be submitted by individuals or by teams of Illinois faculty from a variety of disciplines who are working collaboratively to address areas relevant to NCSA’s strategic plan, including the exploration of large data sets, genomics, and innovative computing.

Proposals will be peer reviewed with particular attention to the scientific merit of the work, evidence of collaboration between Illinois faculty and NCSA staff, and plans and prospects for future funding.  It is expected that one or two collaborative research proposals and six to 12 individual proposals will be funded, depending on suitability and quality of proposals and available funding.
