Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, Inc.
The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation seeks to further the development of scientific leadership in the field of environmental chemistry with a postdoctoral fellowship program. The Postdoctoral Program in Environmental Chemistry provides a principal investigator with an award of $120,000 over two years to appoint a Postdoctoral Fellow in environmental chemistry.
The Postdoctoral Program in Environmental Chemistry is open to all academic and other not-for-profit organizations in the States, Districts, and Territories of the United States of America. Applications are accepted from principal investigators who have well-established research efforts in environmental science or engineering. These research activities need not be located in traditional departments in the chemical sciences, and collaboration across departments and institutions is encouraged. The postdoctoral fellow is usually not already identified nor in the principal investigator's lab at the time of application.
Application Deadline: August 3, 2015

NEW Limited Submission: CDC: Surveillance of Congenital Heart Defects Across the Lifespan
Key Deadlines: April 27, 2015, 5:00pm EST (CWRU internal letter of intent), June 1, 2015, 11:59pm EST (Sponsor's submission deadline).
This new, competitive FOA will expand the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities' programs conducting birth defects surveillance with a focus on congenital heart defects (CHDs) among individuals of all ages. The National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD), Division of Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (DBDDD) seeks to fund collaborative projects to:
1) Category A: Build on existing infrastructure for population-based CHDs surveillance to (i) link additional years of surveillance data for both adolescents and adults identified having a CHD, (ii) identify factors associated with optimal healthcare and improved outcomes, (iii) evaluate factors that impede appropriate transition from pediatric to adult care, (iv) expand surveillance activities to include the lifespan, if possible, and (v) develop pilot projects to translate public health best practices into action.
2) Category B: Develop and implement innovative approaches for conducting population-based surveillance of CHDs in adolescents and adults, and if possible, across the lifespan, by linking existing data sources. Surveillance data will be used for descriptive epidemiology, to identify comorbidities, and examine healthcare utilization and referral to timely and appropriate services.
Number of Applications Allowed: One application per organization.
Terms of Awards: The awards will be between $250,000 and $500,000.

Social Network Analysis & Health Mini Series
The Social Network Analysis and Health Mini-Series is a forum to enhance understanding of social network theory and methods and their application within the field of health research. Social network analysis is increasingly used by scientists across the prevention-to-treatment continuum to understand relational dynamics of complex health issues. The goals of the mini-series are to introduce this method through case examples that include applications related to a range of chronic and infectious diseases among adult and youth populations.
Social Networks and Health Lecture

Biomedical Research Building, Room 105
Free and open to the public, no registration required
The public lecture will orient faculty, fellows, students, clinicians, and the broader Cleveland community to applications of social network theory and methods.
Hands-On Introduction to Social Network Analysis and its Applications
Thursday, May 7, 2015
9:00 am - 4:00pm
Kelvin Smith Library, Room LL06
The full day workshop requires a $50 registration fee. Spaces are limited to 30 registrants for the workshop. A small number of workshop scholarships are available to support graduate students and non-faculty trainees/postdoctoral fellows. A letter from the student/trainee’s mentor is required to obtain the scholarship. The full day workshop is intended for researchers interested in applying social network analysis in their programs of research. Prior experience with the method is not required for participation. The workshop will provide a broader overview of social network analysis and an opportunity for participants to explore analytic software including UCINET, NETDRAW, Exponential Random Graph Models, and SIENA. Trial versions of the software will be available to participants for use during the workshop.
Workshop Scholarship Applications deadline is February 15, 2015. For more information, see: http://tinyurl.com/ml6cpuz.
Regular workshop registration will be available on March 2, 2015.
