Health Effects Institute (HEI)
Grants to USA, Canada, and International early career scientists at an academic or research institution for research on the health effects of air pollution. Applicants must contact the funding source to verify eligibility and submit a preliminary application before applying. Candidates may have training and experience in any of the many branches of science relevant to air pollution.
The budget can be used to support the candidate’s salary, to hire additional junior personnel (e.g., postdocs, graduate or undergraduate students, or technicians), and to purchase equipment and supplies. It is expected that the investigator will devote at least 25% of his or her time on the proposed research.
In considering potential research topics, applicants should be aware of HEI’s current areas of interest, as described in the HEI Strategic Plan for the Health Effects of Air Pollution 2015-20201. The Plan focuses on four key areas: (1) addressing challenges of multi-pollutant science, (2) improving science for decisions: accountability and transparency, (3) addressing emerging fuels and technologies, and (4) addressing global health science.
For more information on research areas, see the RFP: https://www.healtheffects.org/system/files/rfa18-2-rosenblith-award120718.pdf#page=1
HEI encourages investigators to submit applications addressing these high priority research areas. However, HEI realizes that other areas of research may lead to results important to its mission. For this reason, HEI will also consider particularly innovative or high quality applications in other areas that are relevant to the overall goals of HEI’s program.
