Institutional funding opportunity available
The Institutional Strategic Research Planning Committee established
a competitive research program for new faculty at the Health Science
Center called the Competitive Research Enhancement Fund (CREF). These
funds are designated as venture capital for new faculty serving at the
assistant professor or instructor level who have the potential to
obtain federal, private or industrial research grants within three
years of receiving CREF support.
Eligible applicants include new faculty at the assistant professor
or instructor level from any of the Health Science Center schools, who
joined the faculty between May 1, 1999 and July 1, 2000. Both
tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty are eligible. The deadline
for applications is July 1. To obtain an application, contact Liz Buel
in Grants Management at ext. 7-2330. For more information, call the
Office of the Vice President for Institutional Effectiveness and
Planning at ext. 7-2004.
