We welcome you to the 2021 NSF CISE CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop, to be held via Zoom from the NSF headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia on Monday, April 5 and Tuesday, April 6. This event will introduce junior faculty to the NSF CAREER program, and help them prepare their CAREER proposal. The NSF CAREER program serves a critical role in the National Science Foundation’s efforts to identify, foster and support the nation’s most promising junior faculty in both research and education. Junior professors who are just starting their careers often have limited experience with grant writing and evaluation. They also have little or no interaction with the program directors at NSF. In this workshop, early-career faculty members will have the opportunity to improve their skills in proposal writing, to interact with NSF program directors from different divisions (OAC, IIS, CNS, and CCF) and to meet recent NSF CAREER awardees. The workshop is also open to multidisciplinary researchers with a CISE-specific focus, including cyberinfrastructure. The major components of the workshop include presentations on proposal writing, and opportunities for Q&A in specific divisions and clusters within CISE.

This workshop is being organized by Dr. Jack Snoeyink, supported by National Science Foundation and the Department of Computer Science at UNC-Chapel Hill. Because the workshop will be held virtually as a Zoom teleconference, this will allow us to open the sessions to all who wish to view them.

Please come back to see a revised agenda, and links to presentations, as we update this site.

The workshop will offer an opportunity for the junior faculty members to have office hours with NSF CISE Program Directors from their primary research programs. If you are interested in this opportunity, please indicate so in the application form (to be shared soon).
