ORE’s Research Development seeks to facilitate a multidisciplinary conversation between researchers who are tapping the benefits of eye-tracking technology and those who might be interested in new collaborations.
New Faculty Orientation
The Office of Research and Engagement will host a welcome luncheon for new faculty at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, August 6, 2019, in the Executive Dining Room at the Student Union.
New faculty are invited to enjoy lunch and learn how ORE will support your success as a faculty member at UT. You will have the opportunity to speak with ORE staff about internal funding opportunities, finding and applying for external funds, engaged scholarship, research compliance, and mentoring students in research and creative activities.
This event is by invitation only. Invitations will be sent in July.
Agenda to come.
Faculty Fulbright Application Program
This year the faculty Fulbright deadline is later than usual: September 16, 2019.
Therefore the Office of Research and Engagement will offer a special Fulbright application program this summer. Our new program includes a sequence of interactive workshops, reviews by Fulbright fellows on campus, and small writing groups, all in addition to our standard application review.
We encourage all Fulbright applicants to participate. We especially encourage faculty members who have not yet considered a Fulbright application for this year to take advantage of this program. It is not too late to start! Continue reading
ORE, TCE to Host Responsible Conduct of Research Workshop
The Office of Research and Engagement, in partnership with the Tickle College of Engineering (TCE), will host a Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) workshop on Tuesday, May 14 in the Toyota Auditorium of the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy.
The university is in the process of revising policies and procedures to make RCR awareness training mandatory for all funded investigators and their research team, with the expectation that they will meet their training requirement by the end of the next academic year. This workshop will fulfill that mandatory training requirement. Continue reading
ORE to Host Associate Lab Director of ORNL
The Office of Research and Engagement is hosting a visit by Dr. Jeffrey Nichols, associate laboratory director for Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Computing and Computational Sciences.
The new Summit supercomputer at Oak Ridge provides unprecedented opportunity to perform modeling and simulation and artificial intelligence at a scale that is an order of magnitude greater than prior supercomputer systems.
Dr. Nichols will discuss the technologies used in Summit, and how supercomputers have changed the way science is conducted in the national lab complex. He will give examples of how integrating supercomputers, artificial intelligence, experiments, and new theories help to solve the nation’s largest science problems.
Nichols’ presentation is open to faculty, staff, undergraduate, and graduate students. Those interested in attending his presentation can register here.
When: Thursday, April 18, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
