Cornell University the Institute for Social Sciences (ISS) has launched the search for the next ISS Collaborative Project(s), which will have a three-year term from July 2019-June 2022. The goals of ISS Collaborative Projects are twofold: research and engagement. 

Collaborative projects are led by a social scientist and comprised of four or five Cornell faculty with different disciplinary backgrounds. These projects typically examine contemporary social science issues of common interest.  Successful applications focus on projects that can address critical topics that build on core faculty or programmatic strengths and that can benefit immediately from an infusion of university resources.  The overall goal is to build on nascent areas of faculty expertise and create new research synergies among faculty across campus. Some examples of timely topics could include work on national and international threats to democracy, inequality and its consequences, and implicit race and gender biases. Each proposal may submit a budget requesting up to $150,000 for project activities. Please direct all inquiries to amt58@cornell.edu
