NICHD Pop Dynamics Proposals

CPIP offers an incentive program for faculty proposals to the NICHD Pop Dynamics branch, as detailed below:

  1. We will offer 5% of the proposal amount (up to a maximum of $5,000) for your personal research funds upon submission of a proposal, and up to a maximum of $15,000 total across all CPIP faculty, per annum.
  2. These funds will be paid out at the end of our fiscal year, and are dependent on their being residual funds. (But we will commit to using these residual funds for this program, rather than “banking” them.)
  3. If our residual funds are below the amount due, and/or the committed amount is over $15,000, we will prorate the payments.

The first opportunity to take advantage of the incentive program is for the June 2021 cycle (NIH deadlines are June 5th for R01s, and June 16th for R03 and R21 proposals). Please contact Tim or David for details.

Statistical Consulting

CPIP offers free statistical consulting through BERD, up to $400 (typically 8 hours of consulting time). Several CPIP affiliates have found BERD quite useful in improving their research paper and/or grant proposal. BERD supports researchers on all types of projects, including for population-based studies. Longer-term support for statistical consulting may also be available for large multidisciplinary grant proposals. Please submit a request and explanation of your need for these services to co-directors Neumark and Bruckner.
