Navy seeking academic researchers for two faculty programs

The Office of Naval Research is seeking applications from college and university professors for its 2014 Summer Faculty Research and Sabbatical Leave programs, ONR officials announced Sept. 11.

“This year, we hope to increase the number of applications for potential research that will further introduce the academic community to Navy research opportunities,” said Bill Ellis, acting director of the Department of the Navy’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities/Minority Institutions Program and coordinator of the faculty programs.

The Summer Faculty Research Program connects researchers from colleges and universities with scientists and engineers at DoN laboratories for 10 weeks during the summer. Over the years, this collaboration has led to numerous innovations and breakthroughs. The program-open to U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents who hold teaching or research appointments at U.S. colleges and universities-has three levels: Summer Faculty Fellow, Senior Summer Faculty Fellow and Distinguished Summer Faculty Fellow.

The Sabbatical Leave Program bestows fellowship appointments on science and engineering faculty to work at DoN laboratories for between one semester and one year. Participants earn a monthly stipend to cover the difference between their salaries and sabbatical leave pay.

Both programs are intended to strengthen the relationship between academia and DoN, as well as foster and leverage cutting-edge work for the benefit of the fleet.

Applications are due no later than noon Dec. 6.

Faculty from HBCUs, MIs, American Indian Tribal Colleges and Universities, and Hispanic Serving Institutions are encouraged to apply.
