About the series
Program directors from across CISE will host a 1 hour webinar to provide the CISE community with information about the Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Research Initiation Initiative (CRII) and answer questions. The solicitation may be found on the NSF website: https://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=504952 All are invited to attend.
The NSF Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) seeks to award grants intended to support research independence among early-career academicians who specifically lack access to adequate organizational or other resources. It is expected that funds obtained through this program will be used to support untenured faculty or research scientists (or equivalent) in their first three years in a primary academic position after the PhD, but not more than five years after completion of their PhD.
Importantly, the CRII program seeks to provide essential resources to enable early-career PIs to launch their research careers. For the purposes of this program, CISE defines “essential resources” as those that (a) the PI does not otherwise have, including through organizational or other funding; and (b) are critical for the PI to conduct early-career research that will enable research independence. In particular, this program is not appropriate for PIs who already have access to resources to conduct any early-career research.
