In today’s article we are focusing on
MSU’s Account Explorer, and the incredible resource it is for MSU researchers. This powerful tool provides the following critical information when managing awards:
CGA view into the contractual and financial parts of an award without using KFS.
Provides account specific notes.
Identifies PI and departmental administrator responsibilities.
Updated throughout the life of a project to reflect accurate award information.
Identifies subcontractor information per award.
Provides functions not easily available in KFS.
Budget vs. Actual (easily accessible)
Payroll (easily accessible)
To assist in navigating Account Explorer, CGA provides a series of instructional videos for an overview of the Account Explorer (AE) post-award tool on the SPA website. It also includes the following associated tabs within AE: Billing, Budget to Actual, Expense Summary, Mailings, and Spendable Balance. Kristy Smith, Contract and Grant Administration (CGA) Manager, navigates through the corresponding AE portions on the SPA website with audio instruction, while highlighting key points and important information. Learn more by visiting https://osp.msu.edu/PL/Portal/TrainingVideos.aspx.

Summary: NYSCF is soliciting applications from early career investigators for awards in neuroscience. The goal of this initiative is to foster innovative, emerging scientists whose pioneering approaches have the potential to transform the field of neuroscience. For the 2022 application cycle, applicants are invited to apply from all fields in neuroscience. Applicants can, but need not, be working in stem cells or related areas and preference will not be given whether the project involves stem cells or not. This career development award provides up to $1.5 million in flexible funding over 5 years. This is a career development award, not a project-specific award, and funds may be used at the discretion of awardees to increase the impact of their research, subject to the terms of the award letter. Applications are due by: February 16, 2022 @ 5:00 PM EST. This RFP is not institutionally limited.
An overview with links is below. Please forward this notice to any faculty you feel may have interest.
NYSCF is soliciting applications from early career investigators for awards in neuroscience. The goal of this initiative is to foster innovative, emerging scientists whose pioneering approaches have the potential to transform the field of neuroscience. For the 2022 application cycle, applicants are invited to apply from all fields in neuroscience. NYSCF is committed to supporting a broad range of neuroscience research areas representative of the field, taking into account the immense progress and changes in the field in the last decade. To that end, NYSCF especially encourages applications from neuroscientists whose research areas may be under-supported by traditional funding mechanisms and/or underrepresented in the field as a whole (see examples on next page) or by previous recipients of the Awards.
We especially encourage applications from neuroscientists conducting substantial research in emerging, dynamic and/or underfunded research areas and with technologies that have the potential to be transformative for the field at large, for example in the fields of:
psychiatry and mental health research
epidemiological or population-level studies using real-world human data
disease research in humans or on human populations
ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA To be eligible, applicants must:
Have completed one or more of the following degrees: MD, PhD, DPhil
Be within 6 years of starting a faculty (professorship) or comparable position on June 1, 2022 (Note: an additional year of eligibility was added as a result of the COVID-19 crisis)
Independently supervise a research team as head of group/laboratory
Have a publication record containing articles that are innovative and high impact
NYSCF will accept applications from researchers based at domestic and international accredited non-profit research and academic institutions. Applicants can, but need not, be working in stem cells or related areas and preference will not be given whether the project involves stem cells or not. NYSCF is committed to fostering diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in STEM. Overcoming the impact of systematic racism, sexism, and other discrimination that has systematically marginalized certain groups from STEM research is critical for a productive, innovative scientific community. NYSCF strongly encourages applications from scientists of all ethnicities, cultures, religions, nationalities, abilities and disabilities, sexes, gender identities, sexual orientations, geographic locations, and socioeconomic statuses.
Please note this is a career development award, not a project-specific award, and funds may be used at the discretion of awardees to increase the impact of their research, subject to the terms of the award letter.
