DBI SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

10/02/2014  - A new solicitation for Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Biology (PRFB) has been posted. The areas of focus change periodically as new scientific and infrastructure opportunities present themselves. For FY 2015 and beyond, these BIO programs are (1) Broadening Participation of Groups Under-represented in Biology, (2) Research Using Biological Collections, and  (3) National Plant Genome Initiative (NPGI) Postdoctoral Research Fellowships.  The proposal submission deadline for this year is January 8, 2015

A Dear Colleague Letter for BRAIN EAGERs to Enable Innovative Neurotechnologies to Reveal the Functional and Emergent Properties of Neural Circuits Underlying Behavior and Cognition has been posted. Click here for details regarding this funding opportunity (March, 2014).

If you're a new visitor to the Directorate for Biological Sciences website or just want a quick visual and textual summary of our areas of support, please visit the "About BIO" web page where we have added a new interactive organization chart.
