A Feb. 28 workshop aims to help pre-tenure faculty at the University of Nebraska prepare competitive proposals for the National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early Career Development Program, or CAREER. Registration closes Feb. 21.

“Developing a Competitive NSF CAREER Application: Strategies for Proposal and Project Success” is 11 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Nebraska Union’s Regency Suite. The free workshop is open to University of Nebraska faculty and administrators from all four campuses.

The Office of Research and Economic Development sponsors the early career award workshop annually to provide prospective applicants with proposal writing advice and information about resources available to support their development of early career project proposals. This year’s event will feature a panel discussion with NSF CAREER awardees. The panel will be followed by a complimentary lunch, during which attendees will have an opportunity to network with current and previous awardees, as well as administrators and staff from UNL’s Office of Proposal Development.

This workshop kicks off ORED’s NSF CAREER Club activities for 2019. Other planned activities include Portal to the Public training, in partnership with the University of Nebraska State Museum; a campus-community connector event; and a luncheon presentation focused on evaluating broader impacts. OPD also offers one-on-one consultation to UNL faculty on how to develop an NSF CAREER proposal.

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