1. Where are the Repositories for your Research Data?

Tuesday, March 4, 2014, 1:00 – 2:00pm
1705F, Faculty Center, Marriott Library

Researchers are now expected to deposit research data into repositories for all to reuse and repurpose. So what repositories exist for this purpose? Come learn about the resources available to find a repository for your discipline. We will investigate what information about your research is needed for depositing data. In addition, we will discuss obtaining credit for publishing data and how to appropriately cite datasets in your publications.

For additional information please contact Daureen Nesdill

3. Grant Writing Crash Course

October 10-12, 2014
The Lodges at Deer Valley Resort
Park City, Utah

Open to all Faculty members and Postdoctoral Scholars!

Using a unique and proven method to learn how to write a fundable proposal, the Grant Writing Crash Course provides one-on-one mentoring by successful University of Utah faculty grant writers. Participants complete a series of short exercises prior to the Grant Writing Crash Course, drafting text that will be refined and assembled under the guidance of faculty mentors into critical sections of their proposal. Several essential topics are covered in focused brief lectures and discussions, including the strategies and mechanics of effective proposal writing, how to sell your project (and yourself as Principal Investigator) to a sponsoring agency, the criteria that reviewers use to evaluate your proposal, pitfalls to avoid in grant writing, how to develop aims and justifications, the ins and outs of major funding agencies, and the political, social, and psychological aspects of “grantsmanship.” Focused, intensive work sessions provide participants with ample uninterrupted time to craft and recraft their thinking, writing, and presentation based on real-time constructive feedback from faculty mentors, enhancing their proposals and increasing the likelihood of their success.

Attendance is highly limited. Registration fees for the October program include two nights lodging at the Deer Valley Resort, use of recreational facilities, and most meals. A spouse/partner and up to two children are welcome to accompany the participant (additional charge if more than two children attend). If you do not have seed or personal funding available for the registration fee, we encourage you to discuss other options with your Department Chair or Research Dean.

To register for the October 2014 program, or for more information, please contact Tony Onofrietti, Director, Research Education, at 801-585-3492 or at tony.onofrietti@hsc.utah.edu.

The Grant Writing Crash Course program is sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research and are led by Dr. Gary C. Schoenwolf, Distinguished Professor of Neurobiology and Anatomy.
