I Need Money: Uncovering strategies for getting funding

September 21, 2023, 11:45 - 1:30 

Faculty Link Program

This forum is for faculty who have research projects that they want to find funding for. Faculty Core Advisors will discuss strategies that have been successful for them, and lead discussion on topics such as: How much money and time is needed? Should you always start with a small pilot, seed project, or just go big? Which are the right funders to approach, and how can you get them interested in your ideas? Does it make sense to keep your project on the Berkeley campus, or collaborate with researchers at other institutions?

Finding your people:
Strategies for building new connections across the faculty career

October 16, 2023, 11:45 - 1:30 

Faculty Link Program

In this forum we will discuss both formal and informal strategies for building valuable new connections (to individuals, campus offices, programs, industry, professional societies) at different points in your faculty career. Faculty Core Advisors will share benefits that such connections provide, along with different needs at different career stages. We will also discuss how to proactively strategize, for example, anticipating what kinds of new connections will most benefit you when you first have tenure, which will be most helpful as you make the transition to full professor, and which can best support your overall career success and sense of satisfaction. 

Pursuit of rigor and integrity in research (in any field/discipline)

November 9, 2023, 11:45 - 1:30 

Faculty Link Program

Faculty Core Advisors will discuss ideas for preventive measures to support the integrity of the research you conduct or supervise. From book-based disciplines, to graduate groups, to running labs, we will discuss ideas and policies to reduce the risk of human error, avoid the perception of research fraud, and offer specific practices for preventing error/misconduct by creating and monitoring our own ethics. Core Advisors will discuss our responsibilities, offer strategies for faculty who rely on doctoral students and postdocs for statistical analyses, and discuss options for responding if concerns about research integrity are raised.
