Applications are invited for interdisciplinary mini-labs on topics related to the theme ‘Being Human’, to be investigated at both conceptual and problem-solving levels. The labs are intended to spark cross-campus collaborations and to seed larger grant initiatives.
Conducted in any quarter of 2020/21, each mini-lab will consist of 3 to 5 faculty investigators from colleges and schools at UCR, with at least one member from CHASS and one member from the BCOE, CNAS or the Medical School in each lab. Participants will each receive a $500 contribution to their research funds. (Contributions may be partially or fully pooled to facilitate the work of the mini-lab.) Each lab will deliver an in-depth position paper at the conclusion of its study that outlines the work conducted, an assessment of the interdisciplinary efforts, and the potential for future collaboration.
Applicants should submit a brief (1-page) description of the proposed topic and a list of participants (confirmed and tentative) to CIS@ucr.edu by 11:59 pm on July 15, 2020.
