American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund: Doctoral New Investigator Grants

The American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund supports fundamental research in the petroleum field and to develop the next generation of engineers and scientists through advanced scientific education.

The organization invites applications for its Doctoral New Investigator grants program. Through the program, grants of up to $110,000 over two years will be awarded in support of original research conducted per the PRF Transfer Agreement, which states that the recipient (ACS) shall use all funds exclusively for advanced scientific education and fundamental research in the “petroleum field,” which may include any field of pure science which in the judgment of (ACS) may afford a basis for subsequent research directly connected with the petroleum field.

The DNI grants program seeks investigator-initiated, original research across the spectrum of the program’s mission. Original research is defined as being different from that performed previously by the PI as part of their graduate or postdoctoral studies.

Applicants must be regularly appointed faculty members at U.S. nonprofit academic institutions within the first three years of their first academic appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor or the equivalent.

Please contact Daniel Hadley if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
