Opportunities for Promoting Understanding through Synthesis

Synopsis of Program:
The OPUS program seeks to provide opportunities for mid- to later-career investigators to develop new understanding of science in the fields supported by the Division of Environmental Biology (DEB) through two tracks of synthesis activities.

OPUS:
Mid-Career Synthesis.

track aims toprovide a mid-career researcher, defined as a candidate at the associate professor rank (or equivalent), with new capabilities toenhance their productivity, improve their retention as a scientist, andensure a diverse scientific workforce that remains engaged in active research(including more women and minorities at high academic ranks).

This track provides an opportunity for the mid-career scientist to enable a new synthesis of their ongoing research.

Synthesis is achieved by developing new research capabilities through collaboration with a mentor to enable new understanding of the research system and questions of interest.

OPUS:
Core Research Synthesis.

This track provides an opportunity for an individual or a group of investigators to revisit and synthesize a significant body of their prior research in a way that will enable new understanding of their research system and questions of interest.

This track would also be appropriate early enough in a career to produce unique, integrated insight useful both to the scientific community and to the development of the investigator's future career.

All four clusters within the Division of Environmental Biology (Ecosystem Science, Evolutionary Processes, Population and Community Ecology,and Systematics and Biodiversity Science) encourage the submission of these proposals enabling researchers to expand understanding and develop new insights in their research.
