SBR and TES PI's, SFA leads and DOE lab managers:

Please share this announcement among your respective communities.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced yesterday 
 it is accepting proposals for the tenth year of the DOE Office of Science (SC) 
Early Career Research Program to support the research of outstanding scientists 
early in their careers. Support will begin in 2019 for over 50 early career 
researchers for five years at U.S. academic institutions and DOE national 
laboratories. To be eligible for the competition, a researcher must be an 
untenured, tenure-track assistant or associate professor at a U.S. academic 
institution or a full-time employee at a DOE national laboratory. The applicant 
must also have received a Ph.D. within the past ten years. Typical university 
awards are $750,000 over five years.

Early career researchers may apply to one of six Office of Science program 
offices: Advanced Scientific Computing Research; Biological and Environmental 
Research (BER); Basic Energy Sciences; Fusion Energy Sciences; High Energy 
Physics; or Nuclear Physics. Within BER, there are two areas of focus:  
Environmental Systems Science and Fundamental Systems Biology-Driven Research 
to Enable Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts Production.  Funding will be 
competitively awarded on the basis of peer review.
Applications from this FOA (DE-FOA-0002019 - and 
the accompanying DOE lab announcement (Lab 19-2019 -
 will support the SC Early Career program goals to develop individual research 
programs of outstanding scientists early in their careers and to stimulate 
research careers in the areas supported by SC. More information on the Early 
Career program can be found at:
