Howard Hughes Hanna Gray Fellowship
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute has announced a prestigious opportunity to support postdocs from under-represented groups in the life sciences.
The Hanna Gray Fellowship will support up to 25 fellows this year.
This is an open application for any fellow with less than 27 months experience as a postdoctoral research fellow and is qualified under the additional eligibility criteria that is listed below.
Additional information is below and can be found at https://www.hhmi.org/programs/hanna-h-gray-fellows-program.
Any eligible fellow is strongly encouraged to work with their mentor/PI to apply for this award.
Previous Hanna Gray Fellowship winners have gone on to have careers at the top research institutions in the country.
Applications are due by December 1, 2021.
The Biology Directorate is now accepting research proposals again, and accepting them at any time (i.e., no preliminary proposals or deadlines).
Instructions for submitting to the Developmental Systems Cluster are at: https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2018/nsf18586/nsf18586.htm

The International Conference on Biomedical and Biological Ontologies (ICBO) Conference and Call for Papers
The International Conference on Biomedical and Biological Ontologies
(ICBO) is a premier annual conference series that brings together
researchers, students and professionals involved in the development and
application of ontologies and knowledge graphs, and associated
artificial intelligence technologies, in all areas of scientific
research throughout the life and social sciences including biology,
medicine, diseases, human health, genome biology, human behaviour,
environment, biomes, nutrition, food, plants, agriculture and others.
ICBO 2021 will take place in Fall 2021 in Bolzano, Italy.
(Meeting Details and website coming soon)
In an exciting partnership with the Journal of Biomedical Semantics
(JBMS), we are introducing a direct to journal publication track for
contributions to ICBO from 2021 onwards. Papers submitted to the
International Conference on Biomedical Ontologies track at the Journal
of Biomedical Semantics will be published immediately after acceptance
and presented in the annual conference following acceptance.
Manuscript Submissions: There is no deadline as such; papers will be considered as and when they are submitted.
We will of course do the best we can to have a speedy turnaround, but organizers advise to submit by February/March 2021
to ensure enough time to meet publication deadlines.
The new ICBO Thematic Series at the JBMS is soliciting submissions of
novel (not previously published nor concurrently submitted) research
papers in the areas of ontology design, development, evaluation and use,
ontology interoperability, knowledge graphs, ontology-driven intelligent
systems, ontologies for explainable AI, and the application of
ontologies to biological and biomedical problems, across the full range
of life sciences. In addition, we would like to invite contributions
showcasing methods for ontology-based research, including statistical
methods, tool support for ontologies and semantic technologies including
for the annotation of data, visualisation, analysis, and related
applications, and contributions addressing the challenges associated
with working with multiple ontologies at the same time, including
ontology alignment and matching. Submissions are welcome from a broad
range of approaches to ontology building and use.
Papers should be submitted directly to the Journal of Biomedical
Semantics, following the prescribed author guidelines, and selecting the
ICBO Thematic Series at the time of submission. All accepted manuscripts
will be presented orally at ICBO and at least one author of the
manuscript must register at ICBO to present the work.
As an added benefit, papers in this Thematic Series may qualify for a
20% discount on the Article Processing Charge (APC) associated with
the journal. For more information including how to apply for this
discount, please contact the Guest Editors, Dr Hastings
(email@example.com) and Prof. Hoehndorf
