Join us Monday, December 14th from 1pm-2pm EST for DEB’s next Virtual Office Hour. Program Officers will provide an introduction to the new cross-directorate Mid-Career Advancement (MCA) program (NSF 21-516). The MCA offers an opportunity for scientists and engineers at the Associate Professor rank (or equivalent) to substantively enhance and advance their research program through synergistic and mutually beneficial partnerships, typically at an institution other than their home institution. Projects that envision new insights on existing problems or identify new but related problems previously inaccessible without new methodology or expertise from other fields are encouraged. Representatives from each of the participating directorates will be available for questions.
Please use the registration link below to participate. Upcoming DEB Virtual Office Hours are announced ahead of time on DEBrief, so sign up for blog notifications for reminders.
If you can’t make it to this or any future office hours, don’t worry! Come back to the blog, as we will be posting a recap and the presentation slides.
