Call for Proposals

The Caltech Center for Comparative Planetary Evolution is pleased to announce its 2021 Call for Proposals. We seek proposals consistent with our goals, which are to merge the fields of astronomy, geology, and biology to explore the origin and evolution of planetary systems and their biospheres. Addressing these questions requires research and insight which crosses traditional discipline boundaries.

We expect to fund 3-4 proposals at the $25-75k level. Proposals can be for (non-faculty) salary support, travel, equipment, or any other allowable expense. Priority will be given to proposals which help to seed innovative partnerships and new collaborations across the Center.

Proposals are generally expected to be submitted by Caltech faculty members, but, in limited circumstances and with advance discussion, non-faculty members could be allowed to apply. Postdocs, students, and staff are encouraged to discuss this opportunity and ideas for potential proposals with a related faculty member.

Proposals should be a maximum of two pages including figures, references, and a simple budget (no overhead is required in these budgets) and should be sent to cpe@gps.caltech.edu by 5pm 30 April 2021.
