The forum is an opportunity for faculty to learn approaches and strategies to conceive, prepare and submit CAREER proposals.
Texas Tech researchers interested in securing National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER awards are invited to a forum to learn tips for applying.
All junior and tenure-track faculty are invited to attend the event from 8:30 a.m.-12 p.m. April 29 in the Faculty Senate Room of the Student Union Building.
The forum is an opportunity for faculty to learn approaches and strategies to conceive, prepare and submit CAREER proposals, how to engage NSF program officers during the process, and how to leverage grants into future funding.
This year's forum consists of panel discussions with NSF personnel, current and past NSF CAREER recipients from Texas Tech, and past NSF program managers currently at the university. The event is sponsored by President Guy Bailey, Provost Bob Smith and Vice President for Research Taylor Eighmy.
The NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program award is given in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research. Tenure-track faculty in their first faculty appointments in the areas of social sciences, physical sciences, biological sciences and engineering are eligible.
