The UC Office of the President has issued the Call for Proposals for UC Laboratory Fees Research Program. The program is funded by a portion of the management fees that the University receives for the management of the Los Alamos and Livermore national laboratories based on an annual performance evaluation.
Research funded under this program must 1) be either collaborations or complementary projects between University faculty, researchers, and students and researchers from Los Alamos and/or Livermore national laboratories; 2) be related to the missions of the laboratories; and 3) advance the research and training mission of UC. This research opportunity is open to all fields, including physical sciences and engineering, life sciences, social sciences, and the humanities.
The deadline for letters of intent is December 6, 2011, and the deadline for applications is January 18, 2012.
