The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a plan to provide $84 million for new observational, modeling, and simulation studies to improve the accuracy of community-scale climate research and inform equitable climate solutions to minimize adverse impacts caused by climate change. Research will focus on three tightly related scientific topics—atmospheric and environmental observations; modeling of climate change and impacts across urban regions; and simulating the climate benefits of deploying climate solutions and technologies in historically underserved communities across the U.S.

“Urban regions are expected to face some of the most adverse effects of climate change, such as extreme heat and flooding,” said Geraldine Richmond, Under Secretary for Science and Innovation. “Establishing Integrated Field Laboratories (IFLs) in urban regions will enable scientists and local communities to work closely together to better understand the factors that contribute to urban climate impacts and to develop equitable adaptation solutions informed by science.”

Supported research will improve scientific understanding of how climate change affects microclimates and micro-environments across all types of urban communities; how biogeochemical cycling and atmospheric composition vary across urban regions; and how equitable solutions may be identified as a means to minimize impacts, especially on the most disadvantaged urban communities. Teams of scientists will combine experimental, observational, modeling, and simulation research to unravel complex process interactions and improve scientists’ ability to understand urban climate change.  

Urban IFLs will require multi-disciplinary teams that bring together the skills and talents of investigators from multiple research institutions. Academic and nonprofit research institutions, national laboratories, other federal agencies, and the private sector are all eligible to apply as Urban IFL team members. The lead organization of each proposed Urban IFL team must be an academic institution or a national laboratory. Locally-based team members and minority serving institutions (MSI) are expected to have significant roles in each Urban IFL.

Funding is to be awarded competitively, on the basis of peer review, and is expected to be in the form of five-year awards. The Department anticipates that $17 million will be available for this program in Fiscal Year 2022, pending availability of funds.

Spring is in the air, which makes it a great time to do some spring cleaning.  Please encourage your departments to dispose of any unused, broken or obsolete equipment (assets and minor equipment) through Surplus.

For reference, attached are the instructions for filling out the Surplus pick-up request form.  Here are a few reminders for faculty and staff:

  • Do not throw equipment away in dumpsters or trash cans
  • Do not give away equipment to students or anyone outside of OSU
  • Make sure asset tags are attached to capital equipment before sending to Surplus
  • Contact Surplus for approval for trade-ins or donations/transfers to outside agencies

Please encourage faculty and staff to contact you when they start working on equipment removal so you are aware of what is going on and can alert Fixed Assets.

Also follow up with anyone that is retiring or leaving OSU so we can keep track of their assets and make sure they are transferred, reassigned or disposed of correctly.

Thank you for your continued support of equipment management!

As a reminder, Thursday, April 7, is the deadline for the 2022 Dreyfus Program for Machine Learning in the Chemical Sciences and Engineering. Now in its third year, this program provides funding for innovative projects in Machine Learning (ML) that relate to the Foundation’s broad objective to advance the chemical sciences and chemical engineering. The Foundation anticipates these projects will contribute fundamental insights and innovation in the field.

The Foundation encourages proposals to significantly stimulate and accelerate the development and use of ML and related aspects of data science in the chemical sciences and engineering. Below are some examples of areas this program may support: 

·    molecular synthesis, including mechanisms, techniques, and applications

·    theory, computation, physical properties of molecules or materials

·    rates and mechanisms of new chemical processes

·    new or improved materials and materials applications

·    postdoctoral support for collaborations that combine chemical science research with ML expertise 

·    collaborative sabbaticals, extended visits, and meetings 

·    education, e.g., new courses, seminar series, MOOCs, …

·    public libraries of chemistry and chemical engineering data for use in ML

Note that proposals are not restricted to the areas described above. Additional details are available on the Foundation website

I hope you’re having a good March so far!

I wanted to share information the launch of the Clean Energy Corps, which is comprised of staff from more than a dozen offices across the Department of Energy—current staff and new hires—who are working together to research, develop, demonstrate, and deploy solutions to climate change.   The Clean Energy Corps is ready to recruit an additional 1,000 staff using special hiring authorities included in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

DOE’s current team and these new colleagues will be vital in implementing the Law’s historic infusion of $62 billion in funding and accelerating the nation’s drive to a clean energy future.

To recruit those staff, DOE is launching an applicant portal which will allow interested individuals to submit their information.  The portal will give hiring managers the ability to quickly identify the best and brightest candidates and ensure that we can bring on talent and perspectives from every community in America.  Invited candidates will proceed to a diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA)-informed interview process.

This link leads to the application portal:
