The University of Nebraska at Omaha's (UNO) Office of Research and Creative Activity (ORCA), with support from the University of Nebraska Central Administration, UNO Graduate Studies, and the Nebraska Research Initiative (NRI), has developed a new program called "Research Management and Professional Development" aimed at stimulating research and creative activities at UNO.
The program will provide support in the form of doctoral graduate research assistantships (GRAs) with the goal of increasing scholarly productivity, doctoral program enrollment, and grant support, contributing to an overall growth in UNO’s external funding.
All full-time faculty are eligible to apply. Applications must be from faculty who have an early-in-the-program student or will recruit/accept a new student to any UNO doctoral program. The student may be pursuing a degree from a different department than the faculty mentor. The student does not need to be identified and/or named in the application.
The Research Management and Professional Development group welcomes all faculty and staff who participate in research across campus, whether pre-award or post-award, to attend its monthly meetings. Participants are not required to attend every month, but are encouraged to attend topics that will apply to their role in the research process.
The September meeting, which takes place Thursday, Sept. 19 from Noon - 1 P.M. inside MBSC 228, will discuss the new program with the detailed funding announcement. Registration for the meetings are encouraged but not required. Register here for the September meeting.
