The Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute is pleased to announce its annual HEMI Seed Grant Program. The goal of this program is to provide seed funding to advance the fundamental science associated with materials and structures under extreme conditions.
The extreme conditions of interest include extreme rates, extreme pressures, extreme temperatures, and generalized loadings that subject materials and structures to conditions that substantially exceed or modify intrinsic scales (e.g., stresses greater than the moduli). However, extreme conditions in other domains such as medical or social sciences will also be of interest.
Eligibility: All faculty and researchers at the Johns Hopkins University, as well as Applied Physics Laboratory staff, who can serve as principal and co-investigators are eligible to apply.
Award: The total budget request for a faculty or team may not exceed $25,000. The project period is up to one year.
Deadline: Proposals are due by 5 p.m. on Monday, March 16.
