All full-time faculty at Columbia University and Barnard College. Non-Faculty may apply with the support of a faculty co-investigator (see Proposal Instructions for further details).
Up to $30,000.00 total, for projects 1-2 years in duration
Extended until March 29, 2017
The PSSN Program will offer annual seed/pilot grants to enable collaboration between Columbia and Barnard faculty in the humanities, arts, or social sciences, and faculty in the natural sciences whose primary focus is the empirical study of mind, brain, and behavior. This request for proposals is open to all full-time faculty at Columbia University and Barnard College that contribute to these interdisciplinary goals. Non-faculty applications (including postdocs and senior PhD students) will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, with a letter of support from a faculty advisor and at least one full-time faculty member serving as co-investigator.
Proposals should outline interdisciplinary activities and research that involve either direct collaboration between neuroscientists and researchers from other disciplines, or traverse traditional disciplinary boundaries in order to investigate issues relevant to society and neuroscience.
Awards will be made of up to a total of $30,000 for projects 1 – 2 years in duration. Up to five grants will be awarded each year.
