GLIN==> CILER Announces Call for Proposals

The Cooperative Institute for Limnology and Ecosystems Research (CILER) at
the University of Michigan is pleased to announce a call for proposals for
Joint Investigator Pilot Projects as part of its Scientific Enhancement
Program 2002.  This program is designed to foster scientific research and
cooperation between CILER and the NOAA/Great Lakes Environmental Research
Laboratory (GLERL).  A total of $100,000 is available starting May 1, 2002
for research activities to be completed by August 31, 2003.  The maximum
award for any one project is $20,000.

Joint Investigator Pilot Projects are designed to provide seed funding for
long-lasting, collaborative joint research efforts and by definition may be
"high risk".  These projects require collaborative participation of a
university faculty member at any university within the Great Lakes Basin
and a GLERL scientist and must closely match GLERL's current research
interests and must also clearly fall within CILER's research themes:

- climate and large-lake dynamics
- coastal and nearshore processes
- large-lake ecosystem structure and function
- remote sensing of large lake and coastal ocean dynamics
- marine environmental engineering

The deadline for proposal submission is March 1, 2002.

The RFP is attached as a PDF file or see CILER's web site
http://www.ciler.org for detailed research theme descriptions and for
further information on applying for funds.
