The Mississippi Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI) invites proposals for water research from faculty and staff at any Mississippi research university. Key areas for this year’s priority research have been identified below. Three proposals will be funded as part of this RFP. Non-tenured faculty are strongly encouraged to submit proposals. The MWRRI strongly encourages applicants to collaborate with local, state, and federal agencies.
The purpose of this solicitation is to select one UM nominee for the 2012 Searle Scholars Program. The nominee selected will be expected to submit a full proposal to Searle by September 30, 2011. This is the seventh year UM has been invited to participate in this prestigious annual competition, whose prime objective is to support the research and career development of junior faculty with outstanding potential.
The University of Mississippi has subscribed to Research Development & Grant Writing News newsletter. University employees and students can visit the WebID protected archive at www.research.olemiss.edu/rdgwn.
The purpose of the lunch will be to celebrate the participation of all UM faculty and students who attended the Mississippi Academy of Sciences (MAS) Spring Meeting in 2011, and to conduct an interdisciplinary discussion about the value of, and barriers to, broader UM participation in future MAS activities.
