The Emerging Research Leaders Academy considers the unique needs of mid-career faculty to achieve research success. This program provides vital leadership and team science training that will help faculty pursue large, multi-PI grants, lead campus research initiatives, enhance their own research programs, and ultimately position Illinois for research excellence.
Throughout the fall and spring semesters, a series of monthly in-person workshops will support development of leadership and management skills and encourage the application of those skills to research. Each participant will develop a 5-year action plan and receive recognition as an Emerging Research Leadership Scholar upon completion of the program.
Participants must be nominated by their dean, department head, or director by May 26. Once nominated, the nominee will receive a link to submit an application, including a current CV and statement of interest. Applications are due by June 5, 2023.
