CARC Taos Cluster/Storage cost calculator

CARC has provided PIs on campus the ability to purchase dedicated computer and storage resources to support their research, including through the Research Storage Consortium and the Nano, Gibbs, and now Taos condo clusters. To better support this, we have formalized purchasing research computing equipment and associated support at CARC through a UNM-approved cost model. Using this model, you simply budget for the equipment/services you need in your organization in a grant, and when the award lands, you charge your grant index (in your department – generating F&A for your org), and the direct costs are transferred to CARC to pay for the hardware and services you need.

To help you and your staff budget for this, we’ve assembled a simple excel calculator spreadsheet – simply punch in how much of each resource you need, and the spreadsheet will tell you and your accountant how much to budget in each line of your grant budget. This includes how much to budget for capital equipment (not subject to F&A) and how much to budget for infrastructure and computer services (subject to F&A). You simply put those numbers in your grant and use a cost model description we can provide as the related budget justification.

National Science Foundation
Engineering Design and System Engineering (EDSE)

Funding Opportunity Number: PD 19-072Y
Application Deadline: Continuous

The Engineering Design and Systems Engineering (EDSE) program supports fundamental research into the basic processes and phenomena of engineering design and systems engineering. The program seeks proposals leading to improved understanding of how processes, organizational structure, social interactions, strategic decision making, and other factors impact success in the planning and execution of engineering design and systems engineering projects. It also supports advances pertaining to engineering design and systems engineering in areas that include, but are not limited to, decision making under uncertainty, including preference and demand modeling; problem decomposition and decision delegation; applications of reverse game theory (mechanism design); computer-aided design; design representation; system performance modeling and prediction; design optimization; uncertainty quantification; domain- or concern-specific design methods; and advanced computational techniques for supporting effective human cognition, decision making, and collaboration. Competitive proposals for novel methods will include a plan to evaluate rigorously the effectiveness and performance of the proposed approach.

National Science Foundation
Mind, Machine and Motor Nexus (M3X)

Funding Opportunity Number: PD-19-058Y
Application Deadline: Continuous

The Mind, Machine and Motor Nexus (M3X) program supports fundamental research at the intersection of mind, machine and motor. A distinguishing characteristic of the program is an integrated treatment of human intent, perception, and behavior in interaction with embodied and intelligent engineered systems and as mediated by motor manipulation. M3X projects should advance the holistic analysis of cognition and of embodiment as present in both human and machine elements. This work will encompass not only how mind interacts with motor function in the manipulation of machines, but also how, in turn, machine response and function may shape and influence both mind and motor function.

National Science Foundation
Innovation Corps - National Innovation Network Teams Program (I-CorpsTM Teams)

Funding Opportunity Number: NSF 18-515
Application Deadline: Continuous

The National Science Foundation (NSF) seeks to develop and nurture a national innovation ecosystem that builds upon fundamental research to guide the output to facilitate the application of scientific discoveries closer to the development of technologies, products and processes that benefit society. In order to maintain, strengthen and grow a national innovation ecosystem, NSF has established the Innovation Corps - National Innovation Network Teams Program (I-Corps Teams). The NSF I-Corps Teams Program purpose is to identify NSF-funded researchers who will receive additional support in the form of entrepreneurial education, mentoring and funding to accelerate innovation that can attract subsequent third-party funding.

Facilitating Research at Primarily Undergraduate Institutions: Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) and Research Opportunity Awards (ROA)

Funding Opportunity Number: 14-579
Application Deadline: Continuous

The Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) and Research Opportunity Awards (ROA) funding opportunities support research by faculty members at predominantly undergraduate institutions (PUIs). RUI proposals support PUI faculty in research that engages them in their professional field(s), builds capacity for research at their home institution, and supports the integration of research and undergraduate education. ROAs similarly support PUI faculty research, but these awards typically allow faculty to work as visiting scientists at research-intensive organizations where they collaborate with other NSF-supported investigators

National Science Foundation
Crosscutting Activities in Materials Research

Funding Opportunity Number: PD-18-7222
Application Deadline: Continuous

Crosscutting Activities in Materials Research (XC) coordinates and supports crosscutting activities within the Division of Materials Research (DMR) and more broadly across NSF; with emphasis on diversity and inclusion, international cooperation, and education. Activities that broadly engage the community, such as summer schools, institutes, workshops, and conferences may be supported by XC. Proposals are welcome that do not fit elsewhere at NSF that are also highly relevant for the materials research and education community. Activities that focus on broadening participation of underrepresented groups and/or diversity and inclusion are supported.
