COS Pivot and WSU ResearchConnect Training
February 23 2016 at 2:30 PM
Undergraduate Library, David Adamany
Faculty, staff and students are invited to a hands-on demonstration to learn how to join and use COS Pivot and WSU ResearchConnect. Wayne State University subscribes to COS Pivot, the single most comprehensive source of funding information available. Whether your work is in the sciences or the arts, COS Pivot services can help support and advance your research. Much more efficient than Googling, the database is an aggregation of funding information that is verified for accuracy, updated for currency and formatted for quick, targeted searching. COS Pivot is available to all current WSU faculty, staff and students.

Explore the profiles, publications, and grant data of hundreds of researchers within our university. Follow the network and collaborations within WSU, throughout the SciVal Experts Community, and across the national DIRECT and VIVO networks. The publications and grants listed for faculty members reflect their expertise in the unit(s) with which they are affiliated here at WSU or at prior institutions and offer a snapshot of their knowledge and interests. This training seminar will take place Tuesday, February 23, 2016, 2:30-4 PM at the Undergraduate Library, Computer Lab A.  This event is free, but space is limited, and registration is required!

Panel: Dr. Sharon Lean (Political Science), Dr. Krista Brumley (Sociology), Dr. Katheryn Maguire and Dr. Donyale Padgett (Communication), Dr. Kevin Theis (Immunology & Microbiology), and Dr. Anne Duggan (Classical and Modern Languages, Literature, & Culture)
How to Write a Successful Career Development Award (NIH-Focused)
March 3 2016 at 8:30 AM
Scott Hall
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to offer this research career development award writing seminar for WSU faculty, post-docs, and space permitting, advanced doctoral students on Thursday, March 3, 2016, 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM at the Margherio Conference Center, Scott Hall.  The OVPR is sponsoring a major portion of the cost to bring Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops to campus to conduct this seminar presented by Dr. Peg AtKisson. Attendance at a Write Winning Grants seminar previously hosted by OVPR is a pre-requisite for this seminar. This seminar is for Career Development Award (CDA) candidates and their mentors. It emphasizes the ‘partnering’ between candidate and mentor that is necessary for one of these proposals to be successful. The kinds of CDAs that are highlighted include the National Institutes of Health’s mentored K Awards and NIH’s Ruth L. Kirschstein F32 National Research Service Award (NRSA) for individual post-doctoral fellows.  Positioning for success in advance of writing the proposal, tips and strategies that help to assure a successful application, and principles / fundamentals applicable to any agency’s CDA are taught.The fee for seminar is $50 and may be paid by personal check or through a department index account transfer. Payment or index information must be received prior to the seminar to reserve your spot. Registration is limited! Registration and requested information needs to be completed by February 12, 2016. Attendance at a Write Winning Grants seminar previously hosted by OVPR is a pre-requisite for this seminar. Please contact sjames@wayne.edu if you have questions.
Write Successful NSF CAREER Award Proposals Seminar
March 3 2016 at 1:30 PM
McGregor Memorial Conference Center
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to offer this research career development award writing seminar for WSU faculty, post-docs, and space permitting, advanced doctoral students on Thursday, March 3, 2016, 1:30 PM to 5:30 PM at the McGregor Memorial Conference Center, 495 Gilmour Mall, Rooms FGH.  The OVPR is sponsoring a major portion of the cost to bring Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops to campus to conduct this seminar presented by Dr. Peg AtKisson. Attendance at a Write Winning Grants seminar previously hosted by OVPR is a pre-requisite for this seminar. The purpose of the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award is to create teacher-scholars – faculty members who will use their research to attract and motivate students to learn better. It is a very prestigious award.  Acquisition of a CAREER Award is particularly distinguishing in the developing career of an assistant professor, which is why so many apply for it – most without success. The principal reason for failure is lack of understanding of what NSF is trying to accomplish with the award, i.e., the purpose of the award, which is what this seminar teaches. Space is limited! You must register by February 12, 2016.  The fee for seminar is $50 and may be paid by personal check or through a department index account transfer. Payment or index information must be received prior to the seminar to reserve your spot.  Attendance at a Write Winning Grants seminar previously hosted by OVPR is a pre-requisite for this seminar.  Please contact sjames@wayne.edu if you have questions.
SWE Speed Mentoring
March 3 2016 at 5:30 PM
Engineering, College of
Speed Mentoring is an invaluable opportunity for WSU engineering students to connect with a diverse group of professional women in technical fields. Speed Mentoring is modeled off of "speed dating" and offers professional development in a business setting.  The event officially starts with each of the engineers from industry providing a brief introduction of themselves, including their name, degree, employer, and job title.  Then, the engineers are seated in a large circle.  1 or 2 students are paired with each engineer, and have 3 minutes to ask the engineer about their job duties, career path, work-life balance, or whatever other questions they may have.  At the end of the 3 minutes, students rotate around the circle to the next mentor, and so on, until each student has had the opportunity to talk one-on-one with each mentor. The formal event concludes with a panel question and answer session, where students have a safe, accepting environment to ask career questions they may not have the chance to ask in other settings. Dinner will be served. (RSVP Required) For more information or to RSVP, please contact us atswespeedmentoring@gmail.com In our past two years, we’ve received overwhelmingly positive feedback from both our student participants and alumni mentors.
