The Center for Innovation, Research and Creativity in the Arts (CIRCA) and Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology (IMET) invite applications from full-time, tenured and tenure-track faculty members, non-tenure track faculty, Lecturers, and Senior Lecturers in CAHSS at UMBC for the CIRCA-IMET Artist-in-Residence Fellowship for the Fall semester.

The award is intended to support and promote significant collaborative research in the Arts between colleagues at IMET and UMBC. Applications are welcome from any full-time CAHSS faculty doing creative activity and/or research in the Arts. The awardee will receive a release from teaching in the Fall semester (one course release, with permission of the Chairperson) and a research stipend of $5,000 in order to conceive, establish, or accelerate a substantial project that engages IMET scientists and ventures. In addition, IMET commits $2,000 towards supplies and materials. IMET will provide office space for the awardee and, if necessary, can also make available a studio space. IMET will work with the awardee to provide opportunities to engage with a wide range of scientists and to present work and have discussions with IMET stakeholders, including faculty, students, and start-up companies in the IMET Harbor Launch business incubator.
