Opportunities

The Global Drylands Center at ASU invites scientists at the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences to submit proposals for collaboration with Ben-Gurion University in Israel.

Rationale:
Arizona State University (ASU) and Ben-Gurion University (BGU) share remarkable similarities, the key of which is the physical environment in which both institutions reside. The U.S.-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF) promotes scientific relations between the U.S. and Israel by supporting collaborative research projects in a wide area of basic and applied scientific fields through existing internal and NSF proposals.

Opportunity:
The purpose of this call is to generate international research proposals in Environmental Sciences between BGU and ASU faculty. The expectation is that proposals will present new cutting edge, collaborative research to be submitted to the NSF-BSF or other external funding programs.
• Anticipated program budget is US$80,000.
• Up to two awards will be made under this program.
• The budget must include a detailed justification.
• The proposal must explicitly address how its outcomes will enhance competitiveness in eventual extramural funding.

Deadline: November 15, 2017, 5 pm local time
