3CPG Member Funding Opportunities
3CPG provides various modest grants to further research and education in comparative and population genomics at Cornell. In general, funding is open to faculty members of the Center and their labs, but is competitive, with proposals being reviewed by a committee of other Center faculty members. Specific funding opportunities include:
Priming & Infrastructure Grants
Grants of $5,000 to $20,000 are awarded to provide initial support for new research projects and/or to address critical infrastructural needs related to the core 3CPG mission of advancing comparative and population genomics at Cornell. A key goal is enabling longer-term funding from external sources. The program particularly emphasizes collaborative projects and support for data collection and/or analysis through Cornell's Core Facilities. (More details) Deadlines are Oct 15, 2013 and May 15, 2014.
A limited number of fellowships are granted each year for graduate students and/or postdoctoral associates working with members of the Center. Due to budget cutbacks, awards are a maximum of one semester of support, averaging roughly $25,000, though partial awards have been made in some cases. The funds are provided to the individual’s Major Professor/PI and can be applied to stipend, health insurance, and (in the case of graduate students) tuition as needed (Funds can be used to support the semester in which the application is made). Applicants must be nominated by 3CPG Faculty Members. Past fellows are listed here. (More details on the application requirements). Next deadlines are tentatively July 1, 2013 and Jan 1, 2014.
Limited funds are available to support travel by students, postdocs, or faculty members to individual scientific meetings. Limit of one per Fiscal Year per 3CPG faculty member lab. Faculty member must submit the application! Review dates are Sept 15, 2013 and Apr 15, 2014. More details.
