DARPA Ecology/Evolution Opportunity: Young Faculty Award – a 2-year grant for ~$500K to faculty who are 8 or less years into their job
DARPA Young Faculty Award (YFA) opportunity. YFAs is an accolade, but at its core is a 2-year grant for ~$500K to faculty who are 8 or less years into their job.
Please note topic #s 12 (“Ecological niche-preference Engineering) and 16 (“Novel Approaches to Reduce Agricultural Loss and Increase Crop Productivity”). This grant is a great opportunity to get kinda “out there” work funded.
From now until 1 November interested parties can submit short summaries that will get a “thumbs up/down” to help them move forward or not with their idea. After that proposals will open up and will be due on 18 January 2017.
