The Office of Research and Engagement is in the process of identifying faculty eligible to apply for the prestigious NSF CAREER Award and will be contacting them directly to encourage participation in the March 24 workshop and webinar. Additional workshops and meetings will also be scheduled in the following months to offer assistance to eligible faculty interested in applying for this significant award integrating education and research.
The first 2015 ORE-sponsored NSF CAREER workshop is scheduled for March 24, 9:00 a.m. to Noon, in Blount Hall A004. This workshop will be covering the Program Overview and the Educational Plan & Outreach Components.
Also on March 24, ORE will host a webinar from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., Blount Hall, A004, sponsored by Academic Research Funding Strategies, LLC, that will provide additional details on the topics. ORE will cover the cost for this webinar, and it will also be recorded and streamed for 30 day in order for the potential faculty applicants (as well as Department Heads, Deans, and others) to watch from their own computers.
Please assist ORE in identifying the junior faculty who are eligible and encourage them to register and attend the March 24 morning workshop and afternoon webinar.
These young investigators must be: (1) untenured; (2) tenure track; (3) assistant professor or equivalent; (4) have not applied for a CAREER more than twice before; and (5) propose to conduct research in an area that NSF funds.
The NSF seven research directorates are:
- Biological Sciences (BIO)
- Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE)
- Education and Human Resources (EHR)
- Engineering (ENG)
- Geosciences (GEO)
- Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS)
- Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE)
Please also keep in mind those faculty members who may be interested in applying over the next 3 years. It is never too soon to begin the process, so those faculty who might not quite be ready but want to learn more about the application process are welcome to participate.
