Microsoft Research is inviting nominations for its 2014 Faculty Fellowship program, starting on August 28, 2013. 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 intended to help fund research activities for up to two years.
The winners of the 2014 faculty fellowship awards will be announced at the Microsoft Research Faculty Summit in Redmond in July 2014. 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 Provost, Chancellor, Pro-Vice Chancellor, President, Rector, Vice-Rector, and so on). Direct applications from new faculty members are not accepted. Please pay particular attention to the eligibility criteria.
Nominations open: August 28, 2013.
Nominations and application deadline: September 30, 2014.
Nominations are to be submitted online at: https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/MSRFacultyFellowship. Please keep in mind that the online tool for the 2014 Faculty Fellowship Program will be active starting on August 28, 2013 at 12:00 Noon, Pacific Time.
