Last update


The National Science Foundation is soliciting proposals for the management and operation of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) supporting the atmospheric and broader sciences community. NCAR operates observational facilities and computing infrastructure, conducts an in-house research program and a program of education, training and outreach, and maintains national and international collaborations. NCAR also carries out research and development on behalf of other organizations, most commonly other U.S. government agencies.

The awardee will work closely with NSF and the university community to ensure that NCAR continues to support, sustain and advance the atmospheric and related sciences. The awardee will manage and develop the NCAR staff, buildings and facilities at Boulder, CO, and will promote an ambitious, coherent and inclusive program of research and education.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, February 16, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should describe the proposed five-year vision and concept for NCAR.


$563 million total over five years.
