The Chancellor’s Professors are some of the most dedicated and distinguished faculty members at IUPUI. I meet regularly with them to hear their ideas.
A few months ago, they suggested that the campus invest in giving a boost to the research of faculty at the associate professor level—particularly for researchers whose work holds promise for moving to a new level of prominence in the field or discipline. Thus, I am pleased to announce the establishment of the Research Frontiers Trailblazer Award.
Vice Chancellor for Research Kody Varahramyan administers the selection process. Full-time faculty within the first three years of promotion or appointment to the rank of associate professor are eligible. A department chair, dean, or associate dean nominates the candidate and outlines the prospects for the person’s research to earn national or international recognition.
Each year, up to three $1,000 cash awards will be given campuswide. The 2010 Research Frontiers Trailblazer Award winners will be recognized at IUPUI Research Day, to be held on April 9, 2010. For more detailed information about eligibility, criteria, and making nominations, go to the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research.
