Book description

Learn all the basic principles involved in initiating an academic career and building an externally funded academic research program with this practical guide. Based on the author's extensive experience as a government funding agency director and successful academic, it provides step-by-step advice on how to identify an appropriate funding agency and program manager, how to present your research in a concise and effective manner, and, ultimately, how to obtain your first research grant. It explains the faculty recruitment process in detail and outlines the key timelines associated with being on the tenure track. Providing a unique insight into research funding agency operation and expectations, this is the 'go to' guide for new faculty members in engineering, the sciences, and mathematics looking to gain a head start in their academic careers.

Reviews

'After reading Get Funded, I was tempted to make my review extremely short: ‘Buy this book.’ But, after some thought, I realized I should qualify that recommendation. If you are a graduate student thinking about moving into a faculty research position, you should buy this book and read it cover to cover. If you are a new faculty member looking for funding, you should buy this book and read it cover to cover. If you are a university administrator hiring a new faculty member, you should buy this book and give it to whomever you hire because you want that person to be successful. Teaching students about research funding is now more critical to our microwave field than ever before, as most funding and hiring opportunities are in software or digital design. … I am seriously considering buying Bob a beer as thanks for writing something so useful.'
