1. Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (CDS&E)
PD-12-8084
Sponsor National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) Division of Physics (PHY) Varies
31 Aug 2018: All proposals to the Division of Astronomical Sciences - Solar and Planetary Research Grants. 17 Sep 2018: All proposals to the Directorate for Engineering's Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation. 17 Sep 2018: All proposals to the Directorate for Engineering's Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems. 17 Sep 2018: All proposals to the Division of Mathematical Sciences. September 1 - September 15, Advanced computational infrastructure and the ability to perform large-scale simulations and accumulate massive amounts of data have revolutionized scientific and engineering disciplines. The goal of the CDS&E program is to identify and capitalize on opportunities for major scientific and engineering breakthroughs through new computational and data analysis approaches. The intellectual drivers may be in an individual discipline or they may cut across more than one discipline in various Directorates. The key identifying factor is that the outcome relies on the development, adaptation, and utilization of one or more of the capabilities offered by advancement of both research and infrastructure in computation and data, either through cross-cutting or disciplinary programs.

2. Antarctic Research
18-530
National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of the Director (OD) Office of Polar Programs (OPP) Division of Antarctic Sciences (ANT) Continuous
he U.S. Antarctic Program (USAP) supports scientific research in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, and NSF's Office of Polar Programs (OPP) provides operational research support for these projects. OPP's Antarctic Sciences Section (ANT) supports research to 1) expand fundamental knowledge of the Antarctic region, 2) improve understanding of interactions between the Antarctic region and global Earth systems, and 3) utilize unique characteristics of the Antarctic continent as an observing platform. Antarctic fieldwork is supported for research that can only be performed, or is best performed, in Antarctica. ANT encourages research, using existing samples, data, and models, that does not require fieldwork. ANT also encourages research that crosses and combines, disciplinary perspectives and approaches.

3. Arctic Research Opportunities (Arctic Natural Sciences; Arctic Social Sciences; Arctic System Science; Arctic Observing Network )
NSF 16-595
National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Geosciences (GEO) Division of Polar Programs Continuous
The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites investigators at U.S. organizations to submit proposals to the Arctic Sciences Section, Office of Polar Programs (OPP) to conduct research about the Arctic region. The goal of this solicitation is to attract research proposals that advance a fundamental, process, and systems-level understanding of the Arctic's rapidly changing natural environment and social and cultural systems, and, where appropriate, to improve our capacity to project future change. The Arctic Sciences Section supports research focused on the Arctic region and its connectivity with lower latitudes. The scientific scope is aligned with, but not limited to, research challenges outlined in the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (https://www.nsf.gov/geo/opp/arctic/iarpc/start.jsp) five-year plans. The Arctic Sciences Section coordinates with programs across NSF and with other federal and international partners to co-review and co-fund Arctic proposals as appropriate. The Arctic Sciences Section also maintains Arctic logistical infrastructure and field support capabilities that are available to enable research.

4. Earth Sciences Postdoctoral Fellowships (EAR-PF)
18-565
National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Geosciences (GEO) Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) Due 2018-09-19
The Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) awards Postdoctoral Fellowships to recent recipients of doctoral degrees to conduct an integrated program of independent research and professional development. Fellowship proposals must address scientific questions within the scope of EAR disciplinary programs and must align with the overall theme for the postdoctoral program. The program supports researchers for a period of up to two years with fellowships that can be taken to the institution of their choice (including institutions abroad). The program is intended to recognize beginning investigators of significant potential, and provide them with research experience, mentorship, and training that will establish them in leadership positions in the Earth Sciences community. Because the fellowships are offered only to postdoctoral scientists early in their career, doctoral advisors are encouraged to discuss the availability of EAR postdoctoral fellowships with their graduate students early in their doctoral programs. Fellowships are awards to individuals, not institutions, and are administered by the Fellows.

As an agency with responsibilities for maintaining and improving the viability of marine and coastal ecosystems, for delivering valuable weather, climate, and water information and services, for understanding the science and consequences of climate change, and for supporting the global commerce and transportation upon which we all depend, NOAA must remain current and responsive in an ever-changing world.We do this in concert with our partners and stakeholders in Federal, state, and local governments and private organizations, applying a systematic approach that links our strategic goals through multi-year plans to the daily activities of our employees. Every year we are committed to re-evaluate our progress and priorities, look for efficiencies, and take advantage of new opportunities to improve our information, products, and services.

10. Research Coordination Networks (RCN)
17-594
National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) Sponsor ID: 17-594 (Re-issue of 15-527) CFDA Numbers 47.041 - Engineering Grants 47.050 - Geosciences 47.070 - Computer and Information Science and Engineering 47.074 - Continuous
The goal of the RCN program is to advance a field or create new directions in research or education by supporting groups of investigators to communicate and coordinate their research, training and educational activities across disciplinary, organizational, geographic and international boundaries. The RCN program provides opportunities to foster new collaborations, including international partnerships, and address interdisciplinary topics. Innovative ideas for implementing novel networking strategies, collaborative technologies, training, broadening participation, and development of community standards for data and meta-data are especially encouraged. RCN awards are not meant to support existing networks; nor are they meant to support the activities of established collaborations. RCN awards also do not support primary research. Rather, the RCN program supports the means by which investigators can share information and ideas, coordinate ongoing or planned research activities, foster synthesis and new collaborations, develop community standards, and in other ways advance science and education through communication and sharing of ideas. Additional information about the RCN program and its impacts may be found in Porter et al. 2012 Research Coordination Networks: Evidence of the relationship between funded interdisciplinary networking and scholarly impact.
