Spring 2021 Office of Research Events Focus on Research Success
More than 14 events focused on research success will be offered by the Office of Research during the Spring 2021 semester, with more in the planning stages. In collaboration with multiple entities across campus, the office is working to provide opportunities for faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students in all disciplines to put their best foot forward in applications for research support.
A wide variety of workshops will help faculty, postdocs and graduate students hone their grant writing skills; tailor grant proposals to the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Science Foundation; get advice from industry professionals on publishing in the humanities; help researchers learn about support services provided by the University, including finding funding sources; and get tips on writing a successful CUSE grant proposal or advice on improving specific grant components.
“The events planned for Spring 2021 have been developed based on feedback to a survey that we fielded in December,” says Ramesh Raina, interim vice president for research. “These workshops are designed to address what Syracuse University faculty have told us would be most useful. We hope to continually gather feedback and develop programming that is timely, relevant and useful to faculty, postdocs and graduate students across all disciplines.”

This workshop will comprehensively address both practical and conceptual aspects that are important to writing competitive grant proposals to the NSF. The Office of Research has provided the funding for overall workshop, but registrants must pay for the workbooks which accompany the workshop.

The workshop is open to faculty and graduate students at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry and SUNY Upstate Medical University for a fee of $150.
“Publishing Your Humanities Book: Know your Audience, Reach your Readers“ to be held on Feb. 19. Sponsored by the Syracuse University Humanities Center, Office of Research and College of Arts and Sciences, the workshop features two editors from Stanford University Press. The editors have also set aside additional time for one-on-one consultation with faculty who have questions related to their specific humanities book projects.
