Helping University of Nebraska-Lincoln pre-tenure faculty prepare competitive proposals for the National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early Career Development program is the focus of a Feb. 2 workshop. Registration is required by Jan. 29.

“How to Write a Winning CAREER Proposal” is 11 a.m.-5 p.m. in the East Campus Union, Arbor Suite. The workshop is free and open to university faculty and administrators.

The Office of Research and Economic Development annually sponsors an early career award workshop to provide prospective applicants with proposal writing advice and information about resources available at Nebraska to support the development of early career project proposals. This year’s event, presented by Lucy Deckard of Academic Research Funding Strategies, LLC, will focus on NSF CAREER proposal basics as well as tips and best practices for planning and writing a successful proposal.

The workshop includes a complimentary lunch during which attendees will have an opportunity to network with current and previous CAREER awardees and representatives from the Office of Proposal Development.

For more information contact Tisha Mullen, director of proposal development, 402-472-2894.
