Office of Research Career Development (RCD)

Overview

The Research Career Development Program (RCD) offers workshops, classes and seminars in subjects that are critical to an academic research career, including Grant Writing, Publishing Your Research and Identifying Funding Sources for Your Research. In addition, we offer symposia in Scientific Leadership & Professional Development.

In addition to the workshops and services that are currently offered, several new workshops are being developed.
