Faculty Development in its broad perspective integrates multiple activities that include interdisciplinary scholarship, strategic initiative-targeting, proposal development and overseeing limited submissions. Our activity on research development services for individuals and groups range from idea inception through the final stages of editing.
Our staff is available to lead teams of faculty and administrators in selecting targets for large institutional initiatives, refining their focus, organizing reviews as needed and formatting the resulting proposal to ensure agency guidelines are met.
We also offer guidance to individual researchers through grantsmanship training, and provide copy editing and proofreading for proposals before they are submitted.
Faculty Fellow Opportunities
As Texas Tech University aggressively moves toward achieving the characteristics of a great national public research university, there is an outstanding opportunity to promote faculty mentoring and excellence in scholarship as a Faculty Fellow for Faculty Development in the Office of the Vice President for Research. The target date to fill two open Faculty Fellow positions is March 31, 2014. Each position will be offered for three years at a 25% administrative appointment, subject to annual evaluation.
It is expected that there will be opportunity for one of the Faculty Fellows to transition into the role of Associate Vice President for Research for Faculty Development (50% appointment), on or before January 1, 2015. The second position will continue in the Faculty Fellow role at the 25% FTE level of commitment to complete the three-year term.
