CAREER Development Academy Kick-Off

The Office of Research Development (ORD) within the Division of Research is offering a new program, the CAREER Development Academy, which will guide faculty participants step-by-step to construct a competitive NSF CAREER proposal. Spanning November 2017 to July 2018, the Academy comprises workshops presented by former NSF program officers, ORD personnel, CAREER awardees, and external consultants, complemented by peer-support groups and peer-review activities.

As part of the Academy, there will be a kick-off workshop on the NSF CAREER program on Friday, November 10, from 3:00 to 4:00 P.M. in Room 118 of the Academic Success Center. The workshop will provide an introductory overview of the NSF CAREER program and help faculty to determine the ideal time to submit an NSF CAREER proposal. The workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Chris Paredis, BMW Endowed Chair in Automotive Engineering; Jane Jacobi, ORD staff; and Dr. Sez Atamturktur, Assistant Vice President for Research Development.

Faculty interested in participating in this kick-off workshop should RSVP by 5 p.m. on Thursday, November 9. Please RSVP to the event using the following link:  For more information, contact the Office of Research Development at
