RII Track-4 Research Fellows

EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement Track 4: EPSCoR Research Fellows (RII Track-4)

RII Track-4 provides opportunities for non-tenured investigators to further develop their individual research potential through extended collaborative visits to the nation’s premier private, governmental, or academic research centers.  Through these visits, the EPSCoR Research Fellows will be able to learn new techniques, benefit from access to unique equipment and facilities, and shift their research toward transformative new directions.  The experience gained through the fellowship is intended to provide a foundation for research collaborations that span the recipient’s entire career.  These benefits to the Fellows are also expected to in turn enhance the research capacity of their institutions and jurisdictions.

Full details for RII Track-4 are available in the solicitation, NSF 17-509.
