Building Research Teams Workshop with Betts, Ayman and Segre

If you’re serious about getting your research funded, you must understand how to form, join, or lead a research team. Collaborations of scientists from different fields are key to solving today’s research problems—and funders know it. Illinois Institute of Technology’s Fund Searching Services Team (FSST!) has teamed up with Russell Betts, dean of the College of Science; Carlo Segre, Duchossois Leadership Professor of Physics; and Roya Ayman, director of the Industrial/Organizational Psychology Training Program and professor of psychology, to present this workshop. Learn how scientific collaborations are launched and the role of leadership. The panelists at this workshop bring a wealth of experience on leadership theory and research teams. The workshop will take place on Friday, April 3, 2015 from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge in Hermann Hall. There will also be a question and answer period, with all three presenters as panelists.

This workshop is intended for Illinois Tech faculty members who seek grants, or individuals who need to understand how to form a research team, join a research team, or lead a research team.

To reserve a spot and/or submit questions to the panelists (two weeks in advance), email Mariam Othman at Walk-ins will be welcome as space permits. Light refreshments will be served.
