Microsoft Research are presently seeking applications from EMEA for the 2012 Faculty Fellowship Program which is targeted at early career faculty members whom are nominated by their institution.
Announcing the 2012 Microsoft Research Faculty Fellowship Program
Microsoft Research is inviting nominations for its Faculty Fellowship program, starting on September 30, 2011. This program recognizes and supports exceptional early-career faculty engaged in innovative computing research. The objective is to stimulate and support the research of promising individuals who have the potential to make a profound impact on the state-of-the-art in their research disciplines and to become future thought leaders. Each fellowship award includes a cash gift that is appropriate for the region and is intended to help fund research activities for up to two years.
The winners of the 2012 faculty fellowship awards will be announced at the Microsoft Research Faculty Summit in July 2012. Note that only one (1) application will be accepted per research institution (e.g. one from Harvard University all departments included). The potential Fellows for the Microsoft Research Faculty Fellowship program must be nominated by their research institution, and their nominations must be confirmed by a letter from the head of the institution (e.g., office of the Dean, Chancellor, Pro-Vice Chancellor, President, and so on). Direct applications from new faculty members are not accepted.
Nominations open: September 30, 2011.
Nominations and application deadline: October 31, 2011.
Nominations are to be submitted online at: https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/MSRFacultyFellowship/
