Introduction to Sponsored Research for new Department Administrators
Foundational 2-Day training workshop for Department Administrators who are new to managing awards.
Spring 2020 dates coming soon!
This course is ideal for those who are new to sponsored research at BU, or who will be taking on new grant management responsibilities and need a refresher.
The course is held twice a year.
Post Award Onboarding for new DAs
An informal meeting to learn about the Post Award Financial Operations team, for new starters.
It’s an informal 1:1?with the Post Award Financial Operations PAFO assists faculty and ... Training Manager, who will introduce the DA to what PAFO does, useful contacts, and our suite of resources and guidance materials. This is helpful for both DAs working solely on the post award side of grants, and those who would just like a more holistic view of the research lifecycle.
Please reach out to Jennifer Rogers at [email protected] to set up a meeting.
