The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is now accepting proposals for the Fiscal Year 2021 Early Career Research Program. The program aims to support over 50 early career researchers who have received their Ph.D. within the past ten years by awarding an average of $750,000 over five years. Research topics must fall with programmatic priorities for DOE’s Office of Science. Pre-applications are mandatory and are due on Monday, November 20, 2020.
 
Early career researchers may apply to one of eight Office of Science program offices: Advanced Scientific Computing Research; Biological and Environmental Research; Basic Energy Sciences; Fusion Energy Sciences; High Energy Physics; Nuclear Physics; Accelerator R&D and Production; and Isotope R&D and Production.
 
Awardees will be conducting research at U.S. academic institutions and DOE national laboratories. The program is in its 12th year and each of the past 11 years, an average of 40 universities and 22 national laboratory researchers have been funded under this program.
