Nominations invited for Vilas Associate competition

I am pleased to announce this year’s Vilas Associate competition. The Vilas Trustees have agreed to provide support during fiscal years 20010-11 and 2011-12. The winners in this competition receive up to two-ninths of research salary support during summer 2010 and summer 2011, and a $12,500 flexible research fund each fiscal year. All tenure-track assistant professors and tenured faculty within 20 years of their tenure date are eligible to apply for this award. Faculty paid on an annual basis are not eligible for the summer salary support but are eligible to receive the flexible fund portion of this award.

This year’s deadline is November 13, 2009.
