Subject: GRAD 590: Research Administration and Compliancego/Syllabus_GRAD59000_RAC_s2024.pdf

Dear Colleagues,

This spring I am offering another new course: GRAD 590 Research Administration and Compliance. The syllabus is attached and the course is intended to get students familiar with all of the admin and compliance support units and roles that make the R1 institution function. Speakers will include compliance and admin leaders (including Dr. Plaut from the EVPR perspective).  I am also querying NSF and NIH about doing a guest lecture – to provide insight on federal agency opportunities. The class is meeting T from 9:30-11:20 from Jan 8 thru March 3 (8 week, 1 credit course). Thanks in advance for helping to get the word out about this new course.

P.S. The data management course ended up with 45/50 students with every college represented – thank you for helping it fill this fall!

P.S.S. This new course will be a third course that, when combined with GRAD 612 (RCR) and GRAD 590 (Data Mgmt & Record Keeping) will earn a student an informal certificate in Research Administration, Compliance and Ethics from my office. However, my hope would be we might, in the longer term, partner the three 1 credit hour courses with 6 credit hours from a department (that focuses on ethic, communication, research methods, etc.) to create a real post-bach certificate. I will likely try to work on that in the spring. If you know of units that would be interested in partnering to create such a certificate, please let me know.

My name is Sarah Greenland-White, I’m the chair of a search committee for a chemistry faculty member at William Woods University, a private liberal arts school located in Fulton, Missouri.

I am writing to express William Woods University's interest in recruiting a chemistry faculty member (assistant/associate professor), for a tenure track, teaching-focused position starting August 2024, with a possible start date of January 2024. We would prefer candidates with a PhD in chemistry (or related field), but a master's degree is acceptable if the candidate has a strong record of teaching excellence.

The position is for teaching organic chemistry and general chemistry to undergraduate students. We are looking for a candidate who is passionate about teaching and who is committed to providing students with a high-quality education.

If this is something your soon-to-be graduates may be interested in, would you please forward this link   to your chemistry graduate students?


Thank you for your time and consideration.
