For new applications, requested annual direct costs may not exceed $200,000 or the amount of annual support (direct costs) the center receives from outside the applicant institution for population dynamics research and training, whichever is lower.

Campus Deadline:

Only one application per institution (normally identified by having a unique DUNS number or NIH IPF number) is allowed.

The goal of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to advance the field of population dynamics research by increasing research impact, innovation, and productivity; developing junior scientists; and maximizing the efficiency of research support.

The objectives of this initiative are to:

  • Increase the scientific impact, innovation, and productivity of population dynamics research;
  • Increase competitiveness for peer-reviewed external funding in population dynamics research;
  • Support experiences for junior population dynamics scientists that will contribute to their research independence; and
  • Maximize the efficiency of funding for population dynamics research by minimizing the financial and time burdens of providing administrative and other research support services associated with research projects.

This initiative will provide funding for population dynamics infrastructure cores at already productive population research centers. Applicant centers are expected to have a recent record of high impact, innovative scientific publications and competitiveness for peer-reviewed external funding for research within the scientific mission of the NICHD Population Dynamics Branch (PDB).

Applications must include a minimum of two research infrastructure cores, a mandatory Administrative Core plus a Development Core and/or one or more Scientific/Technical Cores. The Development Core is meant to develop junior scientists and advance new scientific research within the center. A Scientific/Technical Core is meant to provide scientific and/or technical services and/or resources to center researchers in order to enhance their research capabilities.

With the exception of the Development Core, which should focus on new projects, the cores should provide support for both existing projects and the development of new projects. The proposed cores should be effective in promoting scientific impact, innovation, productivity, and competitiveness, but need not be innovative themselves. This FOA encourages core activities promoting interdisciplinary collaborations and collaborations within and across institutions.
