Revival of the NSF Faculty Development in the Space Sciences (FDSS) Program

A solicitation for proposals to this program has been released and can be found at:

The first deadline for proposals is January 27, 2014.   In the future, starting 2015, proposals will be solicited biennially with a deadline on August 31.

Synopsis of Program:

The Geospace Section of the Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences at the National Science Foundation, to ensure the health and vitality of solar and space sciences on university teaching faculties, is pleased to offer awards for the creation of new tenure-track faculty positions within the intellectual disciplines which comprise the space sciences.  The aim of these awards is to integrate research topics in solar and space physics into basic physics, astronomy, electrical engineering, geoscience, meteorology, computer science, and applied mathematics programs, and to develop space physics graduate programs capable of training the next generation of leaders in this field.  Space Science is interdisciplinary in nature and the Faculty Development in the Space Sciences awardees will be expected to establish partnerships within the university community.
For questions feel free to contact me.
