N.D. EPSCoR issues new faculty start-up call for proposals
NDSU department chairs, deans recruiting department chair positions and directors of the North Dakota Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research-designated State Research Initiative are invited to submit proposals requesting start-up funds for tenure-track research faculty to be hired during fiscal year 2014. The funds are available under N.D. EPSCoR’s Infrastructure Improvement New Faculty Start-Up program.
The major goal of the program is to attract highly qualified tenure-track faculty to North Dakota’s research-intensive universities who will be nationally competitive for grants from federal agency research programs in science, engineering and mathematics.
Proposals are due in the N.D. EPSCoR office prior to noon on Sept. 12. Interviews with an external review committee will be held at the University of North Dakota campus in October. Complete submission information can be found at www.ndepscor.nodak.edu/rfps/index.htm.
