The deadline for the ORAU-Directed Research and Development (ODRD) Program Phase 2 joint ORAU/university proposal submissions is March 26, 2018. As a reminder, ODRD projects are joint collaborations consisting of innovative research-based approaches/solutions that fall within the intersection of ORAU’s core capabilities and our member universities research interests.
Universities may propose ODRD Concepts for potential collaboration with an ORAU subject matter expert (SME). University ODRD concepts are vetted by each school’s ORAU Councilor and submitted on the Value Through Partnerships External SharePoint Site: https://upo.orau.org/Partners/default.aspx. Research concepts need to be submitted as early as possible to provide sufficient time to develop the joint proposals.
After matching interests, Phase 1 and Phase 2 applications are submitted by the ORAU SME, on behalf of the collaboration team. Phase 1 participation is not a requirement for Phase 2. Phase 1 travel grants are considered on an on-going basis.
For additional program information, please visit the ODRD Program page on the ORAU website: http://www.orau.org/university-partnerships/members-only/odrd/default.aspx
The Neutron Scattering Division (NSD) invites applications for an M.S. biochemist/molecular biologist to join the Large Scale Structures Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The Neutron Sciences Directorate (NScD) at ORNL operates the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), the United States’ highest flux reactor-based neutron source, and the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS), the world’s most intense pulsed accelerator-based neutron source. Together these facilities operate 24 instruments for neutron scattering research, each year carrying out 1000 experiments in the physical, chemical, materials, biological and medical sciences for 2000 visiting scientists. HFIR also provides unique facilities for isotope production and neutron irradiation. To learn more about Neutron Sciences at ORNL go to: http://neutrons.ornl.gov.
The Intelligence Community (IC) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program offers scientists and engineers from a wide variety of disciplines unique opportunities to conduct research in a wide range of topics relevant to the IC. The research is conducted by the Postdocs, while working in partnership with a Research Advisor and collaborating with an advisor from the IC. In partnership with the Research Advisor, the Postdoc composes and submits a technical proposal that responds to a research opportunity identified at: https://www.orau.org/icpostdoc/current-opportunities.html.
The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) is hosting a problem-based challenge for undergraduate students. The challenge for undergraduates is to develop a strategic communication approach to the general public on the everyday occurrences of radiation, the benefits, risks, and safety of all types and uses of radiation. Your proposal could win you a $5,000 scholarship! The deadline for this competition is Thursday, March 29, 2018, and winners will be announced mid-April.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) seeks applicants for the 2018 class of the CDC Evaluation Fellowship Program. This is the 8th year of this initiative and represents a major commitment by CDC to program evaluation and program improvement. Fellows work under the leadership of CDC’s Chief Evaluation Officer; they will be matched with CDC host programs in Atlanta, Georgia to work on program evaluation activities for/with those programs. For more information and to apply visit https://www.zintellect.com/Posting/Details/4050. The application deadline is Thursday, April 13, 2018.
