The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is currently accepting applications for postdoctoral fellowship funding from its Information Innovation Office (I2O) for projects that will help mitigate the negative impact the pandemic has had on the U.S. computer science research workforce. I2O is looking for projects that help  PhD graduates with the career planning process, as well as address challenges facing the faculty hiring process at U.S. higher education institutions that have arisen due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Without corrective action, these adverse impacts will lead to a dearth of research-qualified individuals in computer science fields that include cyber security; software engineering; artificial intelligence; machine learning; data science; human machine interaction; social network engineering; along with others that are critical to U.S. national security and economic competitiveness.
Funding is currently available for projects that touch on the following topics:
  • Computational Theory of Insecurity
  • Cross-Disciplinary Knowledge Discovery
  • Ego-Centric Emotion Recognition
  • Multi-Scale Models of Social Dynamics
  • Identifying Insecurity in Software of Unknown Provenance
  • Calming Advisor to Reduce Conflict Online
  • Rethinking Design through Imprecise Specifications
  • Software Source of Truth
  • Evaluating Generative Common Sense Question Answering
There is a two-step application process to apply. Applicants are first required to submit a technical conforming proposal by Monday December 14 at 4pm ET. The deadline for full proposals is March 18 at 4pm. All interested applicants must submit both proposals for consideration.
