Mastering the Art of Funding: A Series for Early PhD Researchers
We are pleased to announce this new series of online workshops for postdocs and graduate students! The workshops in this series will focus on providing tools for successful grant writing. Check the list below to see the upcoming sessions we have prepared for you. Registration is required. Once you register, you will receive an email with the Zoom meeting information.
Dr. Elise Lauterbur
Dr. Jennifer Lising Roxas
Dr. Kamber Schwarz
Dr. Kamber Schwarz earned her PhD in Astronomy & Astrophysics from the University of Michigan in 2018. She studies chemical processes in the gas-rich, planet forming disks around young stars, with the ultimate goal of determining the amount of carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen available to forming planets. Her research combines high resolution observations at millimeter wavelengths with physical/chemical modeling in order to constrain the timescale and mechanisms of C/N/O processing.
Dr. Jeannette (Jenny) Hoit
Jenny is the Director of Postdoctoral Affairs and a Professor of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences. Her research, most of which has been supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), focuses on speech physiology in neuromuscular disease. Her publications include three textbooks and more than eighty journal articles. Jenny is a University of Arizona Galileo Circle Scholar, Fellow of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and former Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology. She has served as a reviewer for NIH, U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs, private foundations, and the University of Arizona.
Kim Patten, Assistant Vice President (Research Development), will provide an overview of the National Science Foundation, including structure, funding opportunities, and merit review. In addition, an overview of current funding opportunities specific for postdoctoral researchers will be presented. Register here.
Kim J. Patten, M.S.
Kim Patten is Director, Research Development Services, at the University of Arizona. She leads a team of research development professionals that excel in supporting faculty in their pursuit of extramural funding from federal, corporate, and foundation sponsors resulting in more than $250 million in awards to campus since 2014. Part of this success is based on a holistic view of research development and the research lifecycle with an emphasis on the societal impacts of research such as the incorporation and promotion of undergraduate research experiences, core community partnerships, and inclusive practices. Prior to joining UA, Patten managed projects and programs in conservation, renewable energy, and distributed data systems both nationally and internationally. As Associate Director at the Arizona Geological Survey she managed and conducted research on a more than $30m portfolio, including Co-PI on a $3.6m National Science Foundation project and project manager of a $22m U.S. Department of Energy project. Prior to her work at AZGS, she was Programs Director at a science-based non-profit organization where she helped expand the organization's research portfolio.
