For all researchers conducting Materials Science and Structural Biology research and require electron microscopy techniques, the Brazilian Nanotechnology National Laboratory (LNNano) announce the opening for research proposals submitted for the use of their electron microscopy facilities.
Research proposal submission goes through the User Portal: https://portal2.cnpem.br/cadastro/login.jsf.
Submission of proposals for the use of Scanning Electron Microscopes, Transmission Electron Microscopes and Dual Beam must be done separately, after choosing the most appropriate External Committee to evaluate your proposal. This is identified at the beginning of the submission process as two different committees and following by SEM, TEM, and Dual Beam links.
User Portal is also the interface for giving feedback on infrastructure and services, as well as to update publications related to research developed with the use of the electron microscopy facilities. Updating the published results is mandatory since it is an important criterion of the review of the proposals.
Users with proposals in progress must submit a new proposal in this call (as a continuation, if applicable).
It is worth highlighting the importance of updating the research curriculum on the Lattes platform 24 hours prior to submission of proposals.
Please, note the following dates:
- Submission period: March 1st to 31st, 2020.
- Notification of the outcome: Second half of June 2020.
- Execution of proposals: July 1st to December 4th, 2020.
