|ND EPSCoR sponsors NSF CAREER proposal, grant seminar|
ND EPSCoR will sponsor an NSF CAREER proposal and grant seminar Friday, April 27, from 2 to 4:30 p.m. in Room 10/12, Swanson Hall.
The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards for outstanding junior faculty early in their independent professional careers. For this reason, NSF EPSCoR makes the CAREER Program its top priority for co-funding. With NSF CAREER proposals due in July, now is the time for junior faculty to begin strategizing and crafting their proposal outlines.
A panel of CAREER award winners at the University of North Dakota since 2001 will discuss their experiences with writing NSF grant proposals, managing their laboratories, and participating in the NSF proposal review process. Awardees from Biology, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics, and Space Studies will serve on the panel. Ample time will be provided to answer questions from the audience, and the panelists will be available for one-on-one meetings with the attendees during the last hour of the seminar. Although this session is open to all, recently hired faculty and their department chairs are especially encouraged to attend.
