LEWISBURG, Pa. - Two professors with strong records of developing and securing grants have been named faculty fellows in the Office of Sponsored Research.
Professor of Psychology Andrea Halpern and Associate Professor of Physics Sally Koutsoliotas, serving in the new, shared position, will provide support and training for fellow faculty members as they initiate and develop research proposals. The training will include proposal writing workshops and other faculty development events.
Halpern and Koutsoliotas bring "a wealth of information about proposal preparation and the ins and outs of granting agencies," said Joanne Romagni-Colin, director of sponsored research.
Halpern has received grants from the National Institutes for Health and the National Science Foundation as well as from several private foundations, such as the McDonnell-Pew Program in Cognitive Neuroscience, the International Foundation for Music Research and the Grammy Foundation.
Koutsoliotas has received several NSF grants for her research and curricular projects. She also has reviewed proposals for private foundations and government agencies and has served as a panelist at various NSF faculty development seminars.
Halpern and Koutsoliotas both serve as facilitators at the annual Council on Undergraduate Research grant-writing workshop.
