In the context of the Network in Gravity (GravNet, on gravitational physics including gravitational waves, black holes and fundamental physics) grants for short term scientific missions (STSMs) are available. The grants will have as host institutes one of the following gravity groups: Cambridge University, Instituto Superior Tecnico, Niels Bohr Institute, Pisa University, Sapienza University of Rome, SISSA, University of Nottingham.
We are inviting you to submit proposals for STMSs starting after Jan 1, 2023 and ending before December 31, 2023 (applications outside this timeframe will be discarded).
An STSM application should include, in a single pdf document (name of file: “Applicant_HomeInstitute_HostInstitute”):
1. Proposal title
2. Indication of home and host institute, as well as contact scientist in each
3. A brief CV of the applicant (max 3 pages, including email of applicant)
4. A short description of the proposed project work (1 page max) and motivation letter (1 page max)
5. An estimate and breakup of the financial request (specify if the home institute will provide matching funds)
6. A support letter / email from the Home Institution
Applications should be made following at the network webpage (follow the link and password provided, any issues please contact the coordinator)
After the STSM, the grantee is required to submit a short scientific report (one page max) to the STSM coordinator for approval within 30 days after the end of the mission. The report should contain the purpose of the STSM, a description of the work carried out during the STSM, a description of the main results and other comments (if any).
This call closes Oct 1, 2022. All proposals will be reviewed and the results will be announced by Nov 1, 2022.
The selection committee will take into account the scientific proposal, the matching of funds by the home institute and the geographical distribution of host and home institution.
STSM recipients should acknowledge the Network and the host grant in any publication or talks. STSMs are a great opportunity for all scientists to exchange visits, nurture collaborations, or develop new ones. If you have any question, please contact the STSM Coordinator.
