Science Foundation Arizona is seeking its next award recipient in a program launched to help recruit top-tier, post-doctoral scientists and engineers to the state to focus on complex, multidisciplinary research problems at Arizona State and Northern Arizona universities.
The Bisgrove Scholar Program helps produce and support the kind of research talent that effects discovery while leading Arizona toward global competitiveness. “Clearly, this type of prestigious and competitive program is needed here,” said Jerry Bisgrove, chair and CEO of Stardust Companies, who made a $25 million contribution to SFAz at a critical time during its inception.
The program sponsors up to seven scholars statewide for two years and includes intensive career mentoring within the universities as well as links to industries and the community to enable participants to stay abreast of trends and relevant scientific discoveries.
The deadline for application submissions is Thursday, March 1, 2012. For more information, contact Stephanie Torigian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
