This first workshop in the series will give Principal Investigators the bigger picture of what it takes to manage all the administrative work on a grant while staying focused on the really important piece: the research! The session will provide an overview of the all the responsibilities of being a PI and discuss both the challenges and resources for managing your grant. We will also introduce key topic areas such as: PI responsibilities, working with Co-I's and subcontractors, hiring and supervising staff, building a team, monitoring budgets, and reporting strategies. Co-leading the workshop will be Maureen Perry-Jenkins, Professor of Psychology, (with many years of experience leading large grant-funded projects) and Wendy Varner, CNS Director of Faculty Development. A light breakfast will be provided.
