2023 Experimental Physics Investigators Initiative
Opens Oct 10 2022 08:00 AM (PDT)
Deadline Nov 30 2022 05:00 PM (PST)
Description

Welcome to the application portal for the second annual call for proposals for the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation Experimental Physics Investigators (EPI) initiative. The program will provide support for creative mid-career individuals and their research teams to advance our understanding of physical phenomena and promote equity and inclusion in experimental physics communities. Visit the initiative webpage for more details, including Frequently Asked Questions.

Investigators must have earned tenure (or equivalent) at their U.S. institution and be within five years of that appointment at the time of application. Selection of experimental physics investigators will use a two-stage process. In the first stage, eligible individuals from U.S. institutions are encouraged to submit pre-proposals. Pre-proposals will include CV information, short descriptions of two previous research contributions, and a short essay on a proposed research direction. Data fields in the CV will be mostly acquired from ORCID to allow identifying information to be withheld in the selection process to reduce bias. In addition, we are asking all applicants to write research summaries without identifying information. Applicants must have an up-to-date ORCID profile (which can be viewed either publicly or by setting the Moore Foundation team as a “trusted partner”) to submit an application.

A frequently asked questions document provides answers to many questions. If you have additional questions or concerns that are not covered in the  FAQ, please contact us at epi@moore.org.

Our Preproposal Guide is a quick way to see all the information you will need to complete your application and also includes a few pointers on how to navigate the online platform.
