Launching New Research Projects & Teams (Within or Across Disciplines)
Hosted by the Office of Faculty Development in collaboration with the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Engagement, the Institute for Social Science Research, and UMass ADVANCE
Are you launching a new research project or rebooting an existing one? Whether it’s your first time leading a project or you are scaling up an existing one, this panel of faculty from across campus will offer valuable tips and share their experiences on managing projects and inspiring teams. Facilitated by Associate Vice Chancellor for Research & Engagement & Professor of Environmental Health Sciences, Laura Vandenberg, the goal of panel discussion is to help you preemptively navigate potential obstacles to launching your project and team (within or across disciplines, in person or online), answer questions you have, and connect you with fellow colleagues and campus resources that can support your endeavor. Coffee and pastries will be served.
Facilitator: Laura Vandenberg, Associate Vice Chancellor for Research & Engagement & Professor of Environmental Health Sciences
Nilanjana Buju Dasgupta, Provost Professor, Psychological and Brain Sciences, Director, Institute of Diversity Sciences
Laura Doyle, Professor of English and Chancellor’s Leadership Fellow working on supporting and developing interdisciplinarity at UMass
Shannon Roberts, Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering
Kevin Young, Associate Professor, Dept. of Economics
The panel will be followed by the launch of incubators for faculty interested in creating mutual mentoring groups on research-related themes (e.g., pre-award; post-award; budgets; hiring; collaboration; student mentoring; public engagement).
This event is open to all UMass Amherst faculty and librarians.
