Mid-Career Research Development Fellows

About the Program

This is a partnership program between the Office of the Provost and the Office of Research, Innovation, and Impact. The program accepted the first class of Fellows in 2020. This program is designed to provide research development opportunities to post-tenure/mid-career faculty prior to promotion to full Professor. Selected faculty participate in workshops and career-building events that focus on research support including topics of balancing service commitments, engaging in collaborative work, understanding promotion criteria, and other topics of concern to mid-career faculty.

For questions about the program, please contact Candace Kuby (kubyc@missouri.edu) in the Provost’s Office or Christie Terry in the Office of Research, Innovation, & Impact (terryce@missouri.edu).
