The Research and Creative Activity Faculty Fellows program provides established faculty members the opportunity to enhance their academic leadership skills, bring a faculty voice and expertise to administrative offices, and gain insight into administrative practices and offices. This particular opportunity is intended to enhance research support through the establishment of research development initiatives for early associate professors.
The program seeks to appoint one Faculty Fellow with a term of up to two years. The Faculty Fellow will report to the Vice President for Research and Creative Activity and will primarily work with the Research Development unit. The Fellow will be expected to spend approximately four hours per week working on the development of the program, attending regular meetings, and implementing the focus area project. In return, the Fellow will receive $7,500 in compensation for the 2019-2020 appointment. The Fellow must be eligible to receive such compensation in order to be selected. Applicants may be from any discipline at NDSU but must be at the rank of a tenured senior associate or full professor who have been at NDSU for at least five years. Appointments are for the 2019-2020 academic year with the opportunity for a one-year extension.
This person will join current Faculty Fellow Christi McGeorge, human development and family science professor, who is currently serving her second term with the RCA team.
