DOE Announces Early Career Funding Opportunity

A funding opportunity announcement (FOA) for early career researchers is now available.

The purpose of the DOE Office of Science Early Career Research Program is to support the development of individual research programs of outstanding scientists early in their careers and to stimulate research careers in the areas supported by the Office of Science.

The submission deadline for required Pre-Proposal: January 7, 2020, at 5 pm (Eastern Time)

The Early Career Research Program FOA can be found at:

Under this announcement, DOE’s Earth and Environmental Systems Sciences (EESS) subprogram is interested in research around major, interacting, coastal system processes with a drive toward improving integrated modeling and analysis of the processes that govern coastal landscapes. A primary goal is to provide the scientific underpinning for predictive earth system modeling and analysis tools to inform coastal-region development pathways for energy and related sectors. For this solicitation, proposals are sought that respond to one or both of the following program areas: 

  • Regional and Global Model Analysis (RGMA): The focus on this category should be to use a multi-model and a hierarchical modeling approach (which must include the use of E3SM simulations and existing output and/or the super-parametrized/variable resolution versions of the E3SM) to examine the role of sequential extreme and/or multivariate or multiple-compounding extreme events on natural components of the coastal system.
  • Earth System Model Development (ESMD): For this solicitation, applications must emphasize model development activities that improve the ability of global coupled earth system models to produce useful and credible simulations and predictions of Earth system behavior appropriate for coastal systems.
