[News from the Offi]

Dear Georgia State research community,

University Research Services & Administration (URSA) is pleased to announce our 5th annual NSF CAREER Award workshop for faculty (or support staff) interested in learning more about preparing a proposal for this prestigious award.  This award provides professional development support for junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholar through the integration of outstanding research and education. With proposal deadlines fast approaching, this seminar is a timely opportunity to receive relevant information for your application.

We are happy to host Dr. Suri Iyer (Department of Chemistry) who has been an NSF reviewer on numerous proposals and will provide helpful instruction about what reviewers look for in fundable CAREER proposals and the commons pitfalls to avoid.  In addition, workshop particpants will hear from current and past NSF CAREER Awardees at GSU and will have the opportunity to ask questions about the CAREER proposal and review process. If you are thinking about preparing an NSF CAREER proposal, don't miss this opportunity!

The seminar will be held Thursday January 28, 2016 from 10:00 – 11:30AM.  There will be limited seating so REGISTER TODAY to reserve your seat!
