Neukom Institute Opportunities for Faculty and Staff

NI Funding Opportunities:

  1. The CompX Faculty Program: Once again we will be looking for proposals as part of our "CompX" program that provides seed funding (up to 40k) for innovative work with a computational component. Details of the application process can be found here http://neukom.dartmouth.edu/programs/compx-grants.html. Also, if you click on "Faculty Opportunities" you can find previously funded projects. As you will see they range across the Arts and Sciences, Engineering, and the Medical School.
  2. Special Projects: From time to time, faculty come to the NI with various computational needs and or small-scale projects. We welcome such "off-cycle" inquiries and look forward to more. See http://neukom.dartmouth.edu/projects/ for examples.
  3. Workshops/Working Groups/Conferences: NI has been able to support (either wholly or in partnership with other entities around campus) various collective activities focused on computational themes. We continue to welcome inquiries and proposals for these kinds of events. In particular, the Working Group opportunity is a good way to bring in small groups of collaborators working toward a goal such as a group initiative like a proposal or book  http://neukom.dartmouth.edu/programs/neukom-workshops-fac.html
  4. The Neukom Fellows Program: The NF Program brings to campus early-career interdisciplinary scholars whose work has a computational theme. These are three-year positions (actually, "2+1" - one-year renewal after two years) with the caveat the NFs need to have two mentors on campus from different departments and need a departmental home. More details and brief bios of our current NFs can be found at http://neukom.dartmouth.edu/programs/neukom_fellows_app.html Applications to this CFP are already coming in – the deadline is November 15, 2016 – but we also encourage you to get the word out to your networks and even to solicit individual applications from young scholars already familiar to you.
  5. Neukom Scholars and Travel Grants: NI provides support in various ways for undergraduates working on computational projects. Neukom Scholars are working on research projects http://neukom.dartmouth.edu/programs/neukom-scholars.html and Travel Grants enable undergraduates and grad students to attend meetings to present their (computational) work. 

Now for the favor:

Neukom Fellows can be part of any department on campus. We would very much appreciate it if your department could provide a link to the Neukom Fellows opportunity on your departmental homepage. Perhaps the following text would be a useful accompaniment:  "The Neukom Fellows program is an interdisciplinary postdoctoral program at Dartmouth that may provide another means of working with or being mentored by faculty in our department. Please see the position announcement at http://neukom.dartmouth.edu/programs/neukom_fellows_app.html
