  • Recommending time line strategies
  • Creating and gathering supporting documents
  • Writing of non-technical portions of proposals
  • Developing letters of support, coordinating matching funds (internal and external to include industry and state funds), developing budget templates
  • Supervising University's limited grants submissions program
  • Assisting with long-range planning and implementation of a University-wide plan to target federal, foundation, and industrial research sponsors to increase research funding
  • Monitoring and analyzing federal, foundation, and industrial funding opportunities
  • Initiating and managing relationships with program sponsors
