Faculty pursuing tenure and career success in research intensive institutions, academics transitioning from teaching to research institutions, and faculty members carrying out research in teaching contexts will be interested in this Summer Research Institute. Organized by Lauren J. Krivo and Ruth D. Peterson and funded by the National Science Foundation and Ohio State University, the institute is designed to promote successful research projects and careers among faculty from underrepresented groups working in areas of crime and criminal justice. During the institute, each participant will complete an ongoing project (either a research paper or grant proposal) in preparation for journal submission or agency funding review. In addition, participants will gain information that will serve as a tool-kit tailored to successful navigation of the academic setting.
The Summer Research Institute will provide participants with:
-Resources for completing their research projects;
-Senior faculty mentors in their areas of study;
-Opportunities to network with junior and senior scholars;
-Workshops addressing topics related to publishing, professionalization, and career planning;
-Travel expenses to Ohio, housing in a trendy Columbus neighborhood, and living expenses.
The institute will culminate in a symposium where participants present their research to a scholarly audience.
Completed applications must be postmarked by February 8, 2008. To download the application form, please see our web site (http://cjrc.osu.edu/summerinstitute).
Eligibility: All applicants must hold regular tenure-track positions in U.S. institutions and demonstrate how their participation broadens participation of underrepresented groups in crime and justice research. Graduate students without tenure track appointments are ineligible.
